#1: Create a Facebook page if you don’t have one yet.
#2: Login to your Facebook account and make sure you are using as Profile owner not as Page and click Static HTML Application to add this app.
#3: A new tab will open right next to the window and you can see option like below picture where you should select the page (if you are the admin of multiple FB pages) you would like to add HTML link to. After selecting the desired page clink on “add page tab”.
#4: Now you can see a new tab name ‘welcome‘ is already added in your timeline. Click on it and there will be a light green ‘Edit tab’ option, click on it and you will be redirected to ‘Static HTML set up’ page.
#5: This step is the most crucial one. You need to be very careful while adding link of your website in ‘index.html’ box.
Do you know why?
Because almost everyone makes the same mistake just by adding HTML link with H1 tag and think that would be enough to get DoFollow Backlink from Facebook. Absolutely not! You need to assign rel=”dofollow” mark up as well with normal HTML link to work that out.
This “rel=dofollow” mark is very important and should be done carefully. If you are not comfortable with HTML thing, don’t worry. Just replace “yoursite.com” to your domain name and “your site name” to your website title in below mentioned HTML snippet and paste it ‘index.html‘ box. Don’t forget to click on ‘save and publish‘ button after that.
<h1><a href=”http://yoursitename.com /” target=”_blank” rel=”dofollow”>your site name</a></h1>
#6: Go back to your Facebook page>welcome tab and there is your DoFollow Backlink from Facebook, dazzling with it’s own glory.
