    Hey,

    I got one of my Ad account with the redboxe "unusual activities", does this flag any URL I used to promote with Ads (not violating TOS) ?

    Should I 301 a new URL to the old one and does FB allow it ?

    Hey, Fb will flag a url that it believes is against TOS or not safe for viewing. I suggest instead of 301 at this point build a landing page and send your users there.

    It could be because you logged in using a different IP or browser that isn't recognized.

    Whatever the reason, did you try contacting them?

    Yes but they just told me this was the final decision and they won't change anything. But that's not my question, I just want to know if any URL I used on ads is blacklisted or not ?

    (If you have any idea in order to solve the "unusual activity" problem then you're welcome. Oh just a precision that the account doesn't have a real name)

    Thanks you for your answer.

    You probably got banned for making ads that violated their terms!

    Take 2 hours and read through the terms bro:

    https://www.facebook.com/ad_guidelines.php


    If you are banned, you should not use the same URL to be 100% safe. Its best to buy a new domain (you can buy a .info from Godaddy for like $2 - copy the old content over to the new domain).

    BUT.... in theory there should not be a problem with you just doing a 301 from another domain you already own to the same URL that you were sending traffic to before you got banned.

    No I didn't got fully banned I just got my ads account suspended because I was spending too much and raised a flag for FB, and asked me to verify my identity which I coudn't since it's a fake name. Too bad.

    And thanks for your answer I was thinking the same, I will 301 because I can't change the URL in the video it would be strange for viewers to see different URLs.

    Do they allow 301 redirected domain for Ads ? Can I redirect my domain with Affiliate Link ? If you confirm I will try this.

    It doesn't matter, in most cases even when you do supply an ID their decision is final.
