Technically, let me explain you my concept…
Suppose your URL is a blocked on Facebook. For that reason, you don’t want to stop sharing it unlimited times. So, you need to create a fake landing page especially for your each The blocked web page using Google Blogspot platform. Whenever you will share your blog URL, actually when people will click on it they will be redirected to your target blocked link, where you want to get traffics.
Instead of sharing your original blocked link on Facebook, just share your Blogspot URL. If anyone will click on your Blogspot URL. Then he/she will be redirected to your target page(which has been blocked by Facebook).
