HOW TO UNBLOCK YOUR URL ON FACEBOOK

Have you ever tried to post a URL on your Facebook wall then you get an error, send a link from a particular website to your friends via messenger than you get an error saying “message not delivered”? Sorry to break this to you but that Website [URL] has been blacklisted by Facebook and is now tagged a scam.

Blocked URL is one of the worst nightmares of any blogger, especially those bloggers who get most of their traffic from their Facebook friends as they are now restricted from sharing URL of articles from their website to any Social media platform owned by Facebook Inc [Facebook, Messenger & Instagram]. Surprisingly WhatsApp that is also owned by Facebook, still allows all links even those blacklisted by Facebook.

Normally, when your website gets blacklisted, you are given the option to contact Facebook and let them know that your website does not violate their community policy [click here to contact them].

If you are lucky, you will get a positive response and your URL will be removed from the list of blacklisted websites.

Note: if your URL gets blocked again, that is the end and it will NOT be unblocked by Facebook so be careful.

REASONS WHY YOUR WEBSITE WAS BLACKLISTED

Sometimes most bloggers (especially the newbies) get their URL blacklisted easily because there are oblivious to the rules and community standards set by Facebook Inc.
Your website can get blocked due to numerous reasons and Trybeweb will be giving a comprehensive explanation of all possible reasons:

Error message from facebook

Spamming: New bloggers are always guilty of this and eventually turn victims of a blacklisted website. Opening a new website is pretty amazing and we all love to share articles with our friends and the Facebook community, but sharing a single URL to multiple groups would trigger the red line and your URL will be marked as a spam site by Facebook.

According to Facebook policy, there is a limit to links we share from a particular website daily and new websites are easily blocked because they are yet to become popular amongst most Facebook users, so sharing a particular URL from an unpopular website multiple times by the same user would get the site blacklisted in a matter of minutes.

  • I advise you share 1 link a day to at most 3 groups until your website becomes popular.
  • Create a Facebook page for your website and invite your readers and friends to like the page, post your URLs there and your website will be safe.

Reported URL: Oh no, I don’t spam but my website was still blacklisted!!! This can happen to anyone and the main reason is that your URL was reported Multiple times to Facebook by other users (probably by another blogger who feels you are a threat to his traffic and tries to take out the competition by getting your website blocked).
This is a cheap move but sadly, it is being practiced by some bloggers out of hate for another blogger.

Note: Your Link can also get reported by real users if your articles are fake or click bait.

There is no technical way of Preventing your URL from getting reported but if you know who has been reporting it, you can contact them and find out why, and also make sure your URL is always real and not a click bait.

Banned Content: Your website can get blacklisted easily if your articles go against Facebook policies.

Facebook is the most popular social media and is available to everyone in every country except (China, Bangladesh, Iran, and North Korea), so users can easily get influenced by what they read and Facebook is trying all possible means to make sure only positivity is shared around its community users.

URLs that promotes Fake news, hate speech, Violence, crime, Scamming, Human trafficking, Hacking and other illegal stuff, drugs, and slander are prohibited in the Facebook community and when such URL is found, it is immediately blocked without an option of recovery.

  • Try to remove all of the listed errors from your website and then write to Facebook moderators [click here to contact Facebook], asking them to have a review of your website, if they find it clean, your website will be removed from the blacklist.

HOW TO POST ARTICLES FROM YOUR WEBSITE IF IT GETS PERMANENTLY BLACKLISTED

Once your website gets blacklisted by Facebook, you can send a request to them asking them for a review, if you are lucky, you will get unblocked but once your Website is permanently blacklisted, Facebook won’t allow you to post URL from that site again.


Trybeweb will be showing you methods on how to still send URL from your blacklisted site to Facebook, some of these methods might seem unconventional but they all work flawlessly 100%.

Change Domain Name: This might be hard for most bloggers because your domain name is your identity and changing it would take your website back to level 1. Although this would help you to post on Facebook, this method is not advisable especially for old websites but new websites with low popularity can use this method.

Twitter: Yes, you heard me right. Create a twitter account and post your links there, then copy the twitter link (use a web browser to open twitter) and post it on Facebook, and also write a short description while posting the link on Facebook so your readers will know what you’re a posting about.

Let's say your post is about a new phone released by Samsung and the link you copied from twitter reads https://twitter.com/idomademon/status/1123686417022976000 make sure you add and a picture relating to the article and also a  description that will get the readers attention like “check out the latest Samsung Phone, specs and price” now with this description and a picture, the readers would know where they will be redirected to when they click on the shared link.

URL Shorter: there are numerous websites that shorten any URL given to them and creating another URL that would still lead to the same destination as the original URL. This method is also another great way of sharing your blacklisted website to Facebook.

Earn money by shortening links

I will suggest using this website to shorten your website URL before posting on Facebook. Now Facebook won’t stop you from posting the shortened link and they won’t know it's your website. You will also get paid by this site if you use them to shorten your link. So, this is like killing two birds with 1 stone because anyone that clicks on the shortened link, you will get paid for it and also your website’s URL would also be shared to your Facebook audience.

Note: make sure you add a picture and link description so your audience will know where they are going to.

All these methods have been tested by Trybeweb and they work without any flaw.
