    Hi guys. I have a website and facebook page. Increased traffic comes from facebook, but by a couples of days my traffic is drammatically collapsed. Is the fault of facebook? Facebook penalized me somehow? Especially US Traffic! Do you know why?
    P.s. : apologize me for my baaaaad english!!

    probably you are posting boring stuff for your users and they don't comment/like and because of that facebook doesn't display your posts like in the past?

    Post interesting stuff. Things you would want to read or look at yourself. And not just crap in the hope that someone might share it.

    Well, there's nothing like being penalized on Facebook.
    Traffic from FB is all about how much people share your content on this social network, and about your user interaction with your own FB Page, if you have any.

    Keep your user engagement high so that people will continue to share/like/comment on your posts. If there's no fanpage activity then your engagement will die out as well.

    Not sure why did this happen in the first place. Yes may be the content you were posting had to do something with it

    Never heard of facebook penalizing anyone before but the loss of traffic might be due to old or uninteresting posts. Try posting something creative and new of your own and stop copying posts from the internet. Be unique.

    Facebook had a few updates lately, maybe they have included a few strict rules for traffic conversions. Have you read its TOS lately? I guess we should all read its policies so we'll be aware of what's happening on Facebook right now.

    Facebook doesn't like links in your posts, include a link in your initial post, but don't rely on the "Likes" on the post itself for traffic... Include a visible "Like", "Share" or even FB comments on your sites page instead... this way people can share/like/comment directly on your site & you wont be so reliant on your FB page after the initial post. But if your content is dodgy on your site - it wont convert to FB activity. Maybe you're posting to many links? to often? being marked as spam/negative feed back... check your unlikes & negative feedback in your FB page insights - should give you a fair understanding.
