    Hey, I'm paying to have stories from my site posted on prominent Facebook pages with big (legit) fan bases. We've done it twice and they are saying the numbers driven to our site are 10X lower than what they typically see.

    Example, latest promotion sent out to 25K fans and it only reached 50 out of 25K fans. Another went out to 4MM fans and only sent 75K clicks, which is good but way lower than they said it should be.

    I know the person that runs the company and they are super legit, but we can't figure out why our site specifically is being blocked or throttled.

    Anyone ever hear of Facebook banning or throttling URLs? Could it be that Facebook doesn't like certain code on our site? Why would they do this? Is it even possible? How do I fix it to open it up?

    Long time lurker but one of my first times posting to BHW, was hoping someone might be able to find me answers.

    Yeah, all the Fans are real and it's a super legit page. The three other sites (we're the 4th) and killing it but our site is performing WAY lower than the rest. Can't understand why.

    Have you thought about that maybe the post that they put your link in might not have gotten great engagement?

    if you think the url could be the problem you can try a service like ******** and hide the url and see if there is any difference then.
    I was just wondering how much did it cost for a post on the 4mm page, can you send me details on how to contact the owner, I might be interested in something like that as well, thanks.
