What makes Facebook flag a domain as spam?

    Alright guys :)

    I've manually created 10 Facebook accounts which I've phone verified with sim cards I've bought off of Ebay and I'm about to attempt the 'Facebook Group Method', but I've got a question...

    My method involves sending traffic to the same domain , a sort of 'news site' that I'm going to create.

    However I keep seeing people on here saying that Facebook will block a domain if you 'spam' it too much, so if that's the case why don't the BBC, Daily Mail etc get their domain banned when tens of thousands of users share their articles every day...? If I'm driving traffic to my domain that has - what appears to be ;):rolleyes: - genuine news articles etc, why would Facebook ban it just because it was shared by 10 accounts to 20 groups a day?

    PS - I'm going to be using the 'dynamic IP address' method that was posted in the forum by that guy with loads of posts, can't find it to reference back to though.

    Any answers/debate will be welcomed.

    Peace.

    EDIT: Its going to be a .Com domain I register, nothing spammy in the URL or anything like that.

    Warmup the domain by sharing it few times with different accounts on walls and in only a few groups. FB is strict on new domains. You are good because it's a .com so it's better but still better be safe.

    And be aware that now fb is ghosting posts. I'm experiencing this without any solution..

    i own a facebook group, and those flagged domains are usually posted by bots, i can tell that from posters profiles, just a person who automate those bots without doing any effort to make them look organic.

    Facebook wants you to buy ads to drive traffic to your site. If you manage to get people out of FB and into your site without paying FB, they don't want you there on their walled garden.

    That's the basic reasoning behind ghosted or limited post reach for your domain on FB.

    There are other reasons for banned domains: copyright issues, offensive stuff, and so on.

    The domain I've registered was an expired domain as well by the way, do you think that will work better for me? Could the Facebook algo see that the domain is years old and therefore less likely to be spammy?

    Ahhh okay then, so do you think that if I put effort into manually creating what appears to be a normal News Site, it will be less likely to get flagged as spam by other mods like yourself? I'm manually doing this all anyway so no bots in sight (yet...).

    Yeah I see your point brother, but Facebook is a 'content platform' though and without user generated content it simply wouldn't survive - there would be no use for it for users otherwise.

    So they must -at some level - actually WANT content to be posted, I suppose its just about the legitimacy and trustworthy-ness of it....

    Right cheers lads, anyway to sum up where I'm at, I've registered my domain and bought hosting (went for an expired .co.uk in the end as its related to the niche and idea I want to test out). I'm currently building the site and will aim to share some links from my fake accounts later this evening. I'll keep you guys updated to see how I get on.

    Forgot to mention, with my hosting and domain package I also got a free SSL Certificate for the site, I'll be honest I'm not that technically savvy but do you think that will make it less prone to being blocked from Facebook...?

    They want content in their platform, not out of it. They want you to place your text and images inside their content management system where they place ads, not link to your own domain with your own CMS where YOU place ads ;)

    Yep. It's his own closed WWW just like AOL was in the 1990's. Facebook is the beginner's WWW and Zuck can do anything he wants in it, because for a lot of people Facebook is the only WWW they know! They use an app on a phone and never browse the regular web except for Google searches.

    For us older folks it's strange, but there are actually people who think Facebook IS the internet....
