All your hard work to build great content is looking like it will be for nothing as your entire domain is now banned from Facebook. What can I do now? The Facebook support website seems to bring you in an endless loop and none of the information seems to work. Fear not, this is not as big of an issue as you think…well assuming you are innocent, its not a big deal. If you have been blocked because your websites content breaks Facebook rules, then this is not the guide for you.

How To Get Your Website Unblocked On Facebook

So this guide will only work if you are innocent. If your site has been blocked by Facebook and you believe it is a mistake, then this guide will show you how to appeal it. More often than not, Facebook will unblock your website after 30 days or so if it is been flagged by an automated system. As far as I know, permenant bands need to be issued by a human and they are less likely to make these kinds of mistakes. Either way, mistakes happen and this is how you undo the issue.

Start by visiting the Facebook help site here. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a section that says “find answers or contact support”. Click the “Get Started button”. Since this is a Javascript powered page, i cant share the Url, you will need to follow the steps in ths tutorial instead.

Scroll down through the page and click options you need. You may be able to find the answer already here. If not, Facebook actually have a live support system and it is very good. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will see the option to use the chat support. If thhe chat support is offline, or not available in your country, you can send an email. When it happened to me, I had to send an email. Facebook called me the next day to tell me that the domain block was a false positive and that the issue had now been resolved in their system.
