    When I post links to my Facebook page they keep getting ghosted and are getting no reach, has this happened to anyone before and how long does it last?

    Forever, all you can do is to use some shortener that will be in the iframe instead of a redirect. That is the only solution or buy a new domain.

    I don't think it's the domain because I tried posting the same domain on another page and it worked. I posted another domain on the page and it ghosted again. I've heard of this happening with other due to clickbait and they usually get a link sharing blocked for a certain amount of time but I'm able to post links they just don't get reach. My domain was not blocked. Have you or anyone else dealt with this in the past month or so? I believe it is something new and has to downright clikbait

    This is probably the silent punishment by FB. I have the same on one of my pages. Usually pages are given the notification for restriction, but on one page there is no limit, no message but any link posted there gets no reach whatsoever.

    How long has it been like that? Do you think it will go back to normal?

    It's been like this for 2-3 days. I'm checking daily, but if it's not working after 7 days then I guess its been hit permanently. Images and Videos on the page get normal reach.

    I've heard of other users getting blocks for a month. It doesn't seem fair to permanently block links without any notification or message. What do you think caused this?

    Yeah there are different blocks, 7 day blocks, and a 1 month block. Some are limits on just links, some are complete limits on the page which show nothing in audience news feed. But with them they let you know when the block expires. This new one without any warning is probably the worst of them all.

    Seems like one of my pages with over a million likes got hit by the same problem.. It had got a 7 day ban for sharing links in the past now i see the last few posts were ghosted.. so I think the same thing is happening to this page...

    Do you think this is permanent or will it go back to normal in time?

    In other threads I have seen people say this happened to them where every link has been ghosted but I can't imagine it would be like this forever

    Doing some investigating, I see a lot of huge pages are having their posts ghosted as well (a few a day). A page that it happened to me on never had any blocks on it before and now it does without notification. Maybe Facebook isn't notifying when they make these blocks now? Hopefully these are only temporary. It's happening to several pages at an alarming rate it seems

    that's what i'm scared about... one of my page with over 1m+ has been suffering from these since yesterday... I had few of my pages blocked for 7 days recently... but they were working fine now...
    can you give me example of those big pages which you found to be having the same problem...
    because I still see alot of competitor pages going strong...

    One of the pages I noticed it on was twenty two words. Most of their links get around a few hundred likes and several comments, there are a few a day that are only getting 3 to 5 and 0 to 1 comments on them which could only mean they are getting ghosted because they aren't getting even close to the usual amount of likes and engagement they'd get if they weren't. I've seen a few other smaller and big pages I've been watching that have stated they've gotten blocks of some sort with the same issue. I can't imagine Facebook would just ghost all links without any sort of notification or message about when I've heard of others even get 7 days block 3 times... do you think that these ghosted links will be permanent? The pages are still going strong but the only problem is with links I see

    And those few likes that those ghosted links do get I believe are from visitors on that page because they are big
