Im banned from facebook & google, what now?

35 replies
Is there still hope for me on the internet marketing front.

I've followed a very shady WSO and it got me banned from facebook.

Google banned my account afterwards, I assumed they did so because facebook was linked with my google ads account.

I tried to appeal my facebook and google ads bannings, but to no avail.

Is there still hope for me to do any ecommerce online? or am I just screwed?

    Try MeWe and Reddit other social media sites like this. The traffic is lower, but sometimes you can carve out a niche easier.

    Perhaps stop using dodgy methods and build a proper business?

    Don't give up.

    Google and Facebook are only two avenues of paid traffic generation. There are hundreds of others... and of course there are ways to create new accounts in the future when you get a better understanding of the rules.

    I focus more on organic traffic, video, blogging and have no regret as it has given me the opportunity to work online full time.

    Google & Facebook is just a fraction of the world's traffic source.

    You can do well without them.

      Ps. What if instead of hunting people down until they begged you to stop... pre-qualified prospects actually sought you out and asked you what you do and how you do it? Click here.

    Try again using a different PayPal email address on a brand new Facebook account and it works at times. It did work for me recently...

      They'll catch on. They always do. And it's generally not a good idea to base your business around shady IM techniques.

    Of course if you keep changing paypal accounts, and doing the
    things that get you banned from Facebook, it'll happen time and again.

    Personally I'd rather avoid driving up that cul-de-sac of stupid thank you.

    There is hope if you have learned from your mistakes. what was the cause of you getting banned.

    There are some very good info products on Bing Ads. Just go to warrior plus and do a search. If you have any questions or concerns prior to posting your ad come here and ask before you get banned from there

      I was banned from Facebook before my first campaign even went live. I followed a Ben Adkins course to the letter, so idk if that's considered sketchy. My ads weren't being shown after many hours, so I went back into my account to increase my budget, as he recommended when ads aren't being served. Not only did Facebook not show the ads, they banned my ad account and asked for my drivers license. After I sent it, my account remained banned.

        But, did they give you a reason? Or what do you think was in the Ben Adkins course that might have gotten you banned. There are many people here that can help but we need a little info

      The technique involves putting up facebook ads to give stuff away for free, but charge the customer on shipping. The ad strictly states that they must pay shipping.

      Many users that used the WSO claimed to have their accounts banned as well, while the WSO owner claims the technique to be whitehat/legal.

      I am actually using bing right now, unfortunately its a much smaller platform in terms of search numbers, I can barely get even a percent of the traffic I would get from facebook or google.

      Thanks a lot for the comments guys.

        Remember this. Just because something is Whitehat or Legal, does not mean it is acceptable to ad networks. It might be better to charge for the product and offer FREE shipping. A lot of people view a free product "just pay for shipping" to be scammy. While it may not be, that is how people view it.

        I had my FB ads account suspended, but after pestering FB and repeatedly advising that I had no intention of repeating my "mistakes" (whatever they were because I was not given any reason) they reinstated my ads account.

        Good luck.

    Welcome to the club. Just about every affiliate marketer on the planet has gotten thier accounts banned. I was making over $400 per day with adsense 6 years ago and lost my account. Big learning curve. Just open new accounts and go from there... It's much faster

    The best thing is to know the reason why u were banned then go apply for a new facebook account. Make sure you clear your history before opening another one. Add a new email to your PayPal account or get a new card then you can use it for the new ft account or find a friend with facebook account and become admin on their AD account with thing facebook won't bother about your IP and you won't get banned again once you stick to the rule

      I'm pretty sure trying to trick facebook to open a new account is already against their TOS. Never underestimate these companies and how easily they can catch scammers.

    Try using the thousands of other traffic networks out there. No offence, but if you are new to IM, facebook and google are going to crush you and you will end up broke. There are way better traffic sources out there.

    No need to get back your banned account, because it's gone forever. I just suggest that you should find some alternative Agency acc to continue your campaign.

    Google and Facebook certainly arent't the be all and end all of website traffic. Too many people in IM think you have to rely entirely on them. I've been able to build a solid online business without using Facebook for traffic at all. Instead, I've found Twitter and Instagram to be much more useful to me, and have done well enough there that I haven't needed Facebook.

    I do use Google, but only for ranking my and my clients' websites, not for Adsense. I did the Adsense thing years ago, but there are so many much more lucrative ways of earning income online that Adsense now seems kind of like a waste of time to me, personally.

    Just stay clean from now on, and know you don't need either of these sites to make a decent income online.

    what exactly did you get banned for?
    If you desire to give people real value, I can suggest turning your focus slightly away from the usual IM garbage and read up on books like The 4-Hour Workweek (Tim Ferris), Wake Up Rich (by Chris Howard, a brilliant NLP and success Coach who also teaches about effective Social Entrepreneurship in this book), or "The $100 Start-up" (chrisguillebeau.com).

    The reason I mention all these books is because once you have a product or Service that's simple and

    The reason I mention all these books is because once you have a product or Service that's a simple and valuable item, it will get viral enough in its own right! No Need to take care of social media... maybe u could use Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Wordpress, Medium, etc. etc.

    And all These books that I mention could also be easily found on *ahem* Bittorrent/Piratebay*ahem*, although I personally have bought all of them in print, with one or two extra copies for Family like my mom so far.... because especially Chris Howard and The 100$ Start-up are that valuable (the ebook is only 7€ on Amazon)... sorry that I mentioned torrents, I hope this doesn't offend the mods... authors that you like should always be rewarded and supported! Just Keep that in mind... There's also plenty of free info out there when it Comes to NLP and success + (self)-hypnosis and other useful courses out there... Youtube or otherwise (Mark Cunningham for example, Tad James, Richard Bandler are all awesome masters in their own fields)

    i would also suggest as a free "pot of Gold" when it Comes to Information and Inspiration on true grassroots entrepreneurship.... watch all the info from Seth Godin on Youtube that you can find
    (his talks about "Find your Tribe", Create Art and inspire those around You", "The Icarus Deception", etc. ... "Why everybody should have their own home Internet Business"... like I said, his info is worth a ton of Gold in itself

    ...

    (I'm sorry but right now I'm using IE for one day, as self-punishment, haha... it keeps Capitalizing random words after I typed them out and I don't want to correct it every time it happens)
