When you type the name of a person or page into the "Search" field at the top of Facebook, several potential matches pop up in the vast majority of cases. One complication with this is that if you simply hit the "Enter" key, Facebook retrieves the first result its search engine determines to be relevant to your query. This may not be the profile you're looking for, so make an effort to find your precise page. Over time, the more often you visit the page, the more preference Facebook search gives it.

Enter your search term into the Facebook "Search" field, but do not press Enter. Review the initial list of results that drops down from below the field, and click the link for your page with your mouse if it appears among them.
Hover your mouse toward the bottom of the list, and click the "See More Results" button if the page you search doesn't appear. Click any of the options along the left navigation menu -- "People" and "Pages" are among them -- to narrow down your results.
Click the name of the page you want to visit as soon as you see it -- and as often as possible. Whether it's a new friend you've made or a page you make a point of keeping up with, Facebook's search gives profiles and pages you visit frequently higher priority when you type relevant terms into the "Search" field. If you visit a profile or page often, if effectively deletes other names that come up over time.
