    Hey everyone, my CB product sales page doesn't have an SSL cert on it, but outside of that I can't see why affiliates would be receiving a security threat warning when doing FB ads?

    Their affiliate link works fine in itself, it's purely when coming from a FB ad. I presume it's a FB issue, however I see tons of Clickbank products running FB ads and top CB vendors telling affiliates to run FB ads. So something must be up with my site.

    Anyone with ideas or suggestions on how I can fix this would be appreciated!!

    Home Page:
    Use landing page where you'll write review about product and put link below, then with Facebook Ads monetize it.

    Add the link to a picture. Upload the picture and promote it with paid advertising.

    Thanks for the replies but I'm still at a bit of a loss.

    I'm the vendor of the product and my affiliates are unable to run FB ads due to this problem. I appreciate the suggestions for alternative FB promotions but I'm needing a fix to this specifically so my affiliates can run FB ads.

    Needing some help here as NOTHING comes up in Google searches.

    Facebook doesn't want people sharing affiliate links as usually, they are spam... so they blocked out the domain of ClickBank

    Hello...I followed your advice, and put the Clickbank link between the quotations.
    When clicking on the new link created, I get an error message: HTTP 500
    I am not a coder...please explain in terms a layman can understand.
    Thanks!

    Simpler method:
    Create a simple HTML page with this code:

    <html><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=YOUR REFERAL LINK HERE" /></html>
    that way, you will redirect every visitors to the link in the code.
    If you want to put a thumbnail or preview text for facebook, tell me.

    Yes I successfully use iFrames for all my blocked clickbank links. Works like a charm.

    Facebook doesn't like affiliate links. U will have to cloak your cb links.
