    Use a URL shortening service? Ex: tinyurl

    There's no way to do that unfortunately, at-least I haven't found a way to unblock it.But, for facebook you can upload a photo, then edit it's description and add your url. I have had my sites blocked a couple of times. Try to spam less.

    yes . its very simple just create another domain and use this code to redirect them to your links : <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://yoursite.com/">

    There other link re-directer that does the same job . I'll let you know when i find it

    The issue is that I have 100,000 members on my site and they all tell their friends about the site via facebook and twitter! I've not spammed at all. Its a legitimate website within the social media niche. Since it got blocked ive seen a 35% decrease in traffic and the growth trend is down rather than up! I'm wondering if there is a 3rd party scanning website like sitelock or Sucuri which can prove the site is clean and then submit a report to fb and twitter. Would that work?

    It's terrible to have this shit. I know lol. You can't do much about it, cloaking is VERY hard.

    Only way on Fb is to find out Fb's workers IP, redirect that one to legit site and other IP's (your fans) to your site.

    But I heard Fb caught up to this method and checks with different IP's also.

    Anyways, what I did, is started making nice unique pics with my domain/brands in it.

    Less people will come over to your site, but it's better as 0 visitors.

    /or use another domain with the cloaker. I had shared the cloaker for twitter in the JR VIP section.

    I cant just MOVE on! My site has 100,000 members and generates 300,000 hits a month! It has the potential to be a huge site and I will be looking into every way to get this restored

    Well wait.

    300K people is A LOT.

    It's so much, that it might make Fb and Tw re-consider your site.

    Make a popup on your site that makes your visitors share a message on those sites:

    "Unblock yourdomain.com NOW! This site is great and should be on Tw/Fb"

    Your visitors are also theirs, and theirs are their money, if you still follow me haha

    I dont really want to have to bring my members in on this. It will look extremely unprofessional and im sure if the members knew the issue I would lose some.

    The site generated huge traffic and growth when it had about 10,000 members. I could see that they were sharing the url on facebook and twitter a lot. This is how I have so many members now. If i can resolve this issue then i know i'll hit 1 million by the end of the year
