Hello warriors!
Recently, Facebook disabled my account of ads and I am now looking for an option to send qualified traffic to my site. Do you have any idea to help me ?

    Maybe look for another site or medium to advertise on? Perhaps AdWords for instance?


    Did Facebook give you any kind of a reason for disabling your account/ads?

      Yes , Facebook disabled my account because I was advertising a product of diabetes.

      I was advertising in adwords and sending direct traffic to an article on my website, but for some reason they blocked my account saying I infringe the advertising guidelines . I believe it is related to diabetes niche that is causing the locks .

        There was another thread about Facebook disabling an account for advertising a health related product.

        Was the diabetes product a ClickBank product?

            Did you try redirecting the link from your own domain or was it directly to the click-bank offer. It will help if you redirect links from your own landing page on your domain to the click-bank offer.

            Promoting ClickBank products can cause an automatic account termination in AdWords and Facebook. I would not promote them in any paid platform.

    If you are running a whitehat offer. Contact them. You should be able to get the account back.

    If not, use your wife/friends/family's fb accts.

      I've tried to do this, but deactivates the account before you even start displaying the ads.

      Never use a family or friends account after yours has been disabled. Any correlation between accounts will mean an automatic ban.

      Spend $10 bucks, get a vps and start another account. While you're at it, get 10 of them. You'll go through them quick enough regardless if it's whitehat or not.

      If these accounts too will get ban, then what will happens the money spent by advertiser?
      First findout the real reason or choose another niche to promote on Facebook.

    And you just learned the most valuable lesson that can carry you a long way in business...

    When it comes to traffic, as appealing as it can be and although everyone swears it's the best thing since sliced bread - DON'T put all of your eggs in the Facebook basket.

    You're much better off building a business without it then with it. Unless of course you can use it to compliment all of your other traffic sources.

      You are absolutely right, but fortunately this is not my main source of income. But wanted to return to advertise on Facebook or wanted to find a new source of traffic.

        Facebook seems to be on a War Path with (smaller) advertisers now. If you really want to have a chance to get it back try contacting an Ad Rep, he maybe able to get you back in good graces with the Facebook Ad Gods. Maybe. The catch? You'll have to promise to spend X amount of Big Dollars a week - and be at their mercy. Remember they're ad reps and know how to turn the screws when they have the upper hand.

        That's the only way to get their attention now. They seem to have a no tolerance policy for breaking the smallest rule. You get no warning, no reason and in most cases no second chance.

        Once you're disabled with that irritating pink ribbon across the top of your ad page - it's like a tomb stone, you're dead to them as far as posting ads.

        If anyone has had a different experience within the last month or two please share.

        Smart man. It definitely is a great source of traffic and i've done my fair share of cleaning up with it, but it's way too volatile and with so many people only using facebook, it makes you scratch your head.

    Another option would be to use Bing Ads. Take time to read the rules and make sure you stick to them. Google Adwords is also great but not in the way you promoted in facebook.

    It seems you are relying on direct linking... so if this is your case, I think you can also use banner ad displays. You can try buysellads.com to start with. You would have to research on the demographics of the site visitors where you want to display your banner ad so you can present to them a targeted offer. You may want to use alexa.com and quantcast.com for this research.

    You can make sales through banner displays if your offer matches your audience's buying interest, if not you might just be losing money so to be sure, do your research.

    Let's see ... the two BIGGEST, by far, sources of paid traffic told you to get lost. Now, you are looking for a third traffic source to tell you the same thing? Maybe you should evaluate what you are doing instead of looking for someone new to do it to. Sounds like what YOU are doing is the problem ...

    New AdWords accts and new FB accts are going to get more difficult to get every year. In 2015, it is shortsighted to use those platforms against the TOS and get banned - you just screwed yourself out of boatloads of targeted traffic for the years 2016-2025, and on ...

    I understand the sentiment behind building in traffic streams other than Google/FB, but I think it semi-shortsighted. Yes, it is smart to be able to survive if those traffic sources get cut off (be sure to set that up in your business) and even focus on those streams FIRST, but why would you want to IGNORE all of that traffic and MONEY? Cause they won't let you do cheesy crap that ruins their actual consumers (which is not you - you are buying access to their consumers) experience? Or ?...?

    That's right Jason, tell everyone to stay away from Google and FB (all ya'll head over to Bing and then get ready to whine when they pull the plug on things like direct linking, etc.) - it'll be less completion for me when I get some campaigns, following their TOS, rollin' in a couple months on the two biggest sources of traffic I can buy access to ...

    All my opinion, of course. Feel free to have a different one.

      Let me know how it works for you and how long it lasts. A lot of factors go into why people get banned and it's not as cut and dry as you make it seem.

      Besides, I'm already spending $5-8K per day on traffic - without your beloved Facebook and Google. I've learned to live without them (although I can still market on both of them).

      So by the time a couple of months roll by when you finally think and hope your ads are google and facebook compliant, and then you actually start spending some money - I will have already spent $400Kish on traffic.

      You're not my competition.

      You can do a lot more than merely survive without such volatile advertising platforms as Google and Facebook.

      It's not shortsighted at all. It's smart business to be able to have multiple streams of traffic and as much of it as your cash flow permits so if you were to lose your ability to advertise on the more mainstream sources like Google and Facebook, you're not put out of business.

      No one is saying to ignore it. The sentiment is, don't put all of your eggs in the google or facebook basket because it's not a smart way to do business.

      You are SO right on all you just said. It will be only a matter of time before Bing joins the affiliate hate party. Bet on it.

      I'd do a search for people who got banned on Bing and listen to them whine about how they got shafted, then learn the Bing Ads TOS inside and out before you advertized with them. It would be a shame if you were to get banned from them too....although in your case, it's probably likely.

    I will add that if you have an ecommerce or software type business, and not a business driven by info products, you should definitely be on Google and even Facebook. Plus having that sort of model is easier to not get banned.

    If you want to use the Facebook, you must obey the rules & regulations of the Facebook. I am sure, you had broken the Terms & conditions of the facebook, so the authority of the facebook, banned you. You may use any others site to increase your site traffic, but you must obey their rules. Otherwise they will make ban again & again.

      It sounds like a good income opportunity for someone who likes to train. Because there's definitely a growing need for a... Facebook Ad Customer Training or a ... "How Not to Get Banned from Facebooks Ad Program" training needed. Small marketers are falling like flies lately.

      One mans obstacle is another mans opportunity in this case. Perhaps a webinar or podcast to help those who need a little added insurance to make sure they cross every "T" and dot every "I" as a Facebook advertiser.

      Many would love to avoid the dreaded ... "Lifetime Ban" (shivering with fingers in mouth). This might not be a bad investment to many. Because there seems to be a zero tolerance "Ban The Small Advertiser" contest going on now at Facebook. Now it's get any "little thing" wrong ... and you're gone--for Good!

        has anyone tried using surveys on facebook that finally redirect to the offer. for example if i were promoting a diabetes product i would do the survey on 5 common myths about diabetes that even most diabetics don't know about and the final question would be if they would like a solution that actually works.
        maybe someone who has tried it before could share their experience on whether it works or not.

    All I have to say is I have a very large, profitable list and have NEVER once used any kind of PPC/PPV or actually any paid traffic outside of solo ads for that matter. The bottom line with those services is you need them a lot more than they need you, and whenever the situation is like that, the little guy is going to lose almost every time. I have heard countless stories of people following the TOS to a tee, but once the powers that be decide it's not worth it to do business with you any longer, that goes right out the window anyway.

    I've built my list up over 6 figures using these sources: YouTube, Solos, Swaps, Forums, Banner Integration (you put my banner on your download page and I put yours on mine).

    Actually, I did try FB ads a year or so ago for about 3 days and thought it was the absolute worst traffic source ever. However, there are those making thousands from it, and great for them. I just don't like to put any eggs in a basket in which I'm not the one holding the handle.

    Hey, It's worked for me so far. I don't make what you would call a "killing" online, but I sure as heck do pretty well.

    That's my two cents for whatever it's worth (which probably isn't much lol).

        I think that is why they blocked your account. Facebook and Adwords don't like alternate health products because they see them as being too edgy. Their claims are usually outrageous and have not been verified, so Adwords and Facebook don't want anyone slapping them with a law suit for allowing these edgy products and services on their advertising platform.

    I wouldnt worry about it, facebook is just one source of traffic. Theyve shut you down, just find another source. i haven't tried it yet, but I heard that bing/yahoo ads is now similar to what Adwords was in the begninnng, cheap, but quality clicks. Check it out, also try searching for some free bing ad vouchers on google to start off with. Here's a another reason why Im not too bothered about facebook ads because facebook is a closed community where users have to register and sign in. So youre potentially advertising to the same group everyday, where as places like Bing ads, you can potentially get new people looking at your ads because its a search engine. Another reason is, when facebook visitors come online theyre in the social mood, and they see your ad, where as with search traffic, its more targeted, because users are typing what they want ie "diabete help" etc. Another source I've personally spent money on is 7Search PPC, theyre ok, cheap clicks.
