    Hi all,

    it might be a pretty stupid newbie question - or a real problem - anyways I would appreciate any help. I used to post [spam] links on Facebook which were banned simply by registering a new domain and cloacking the links by loading them in an iframe under the new (not banned) domain. This worked pretty well the last years - but now Facebook seems to have something new in their Spamfilters. They seem to be able to check, what is in the frames of an iframe - so they don't allow to post the new domain, if the iframe contains banned domains. What do you guys do, to "cloack" links from Facebooks Spamfilter? Does anyone know, if Facebook changed the filter and are there workarounds?

    Help would be great ;-)

    I think you can just use redirects like a redirect button for the new fresh domain to get to the banned one

    It's a question that is probably asked everyday. I'm not sure there is one definitive answer, especially in the last couple of months as things on Facebook have been changing.

    I don't believe there is anyway to post the actual link once it's been banned, but redirects can still work if you're careful. Also, I've found that listing your metadata as requested in the facebook open graph guide found on facebook(I can't post link), can be quite helpful and possibly slow down facebook crawls.
