You will learn here a special technique to post any type blocked link on Facebook. Also, you will be able to prevent your original URL from getting blocked on Facebook. Few days back, I had also shared a notes on my Facebook page to solve basic issue.
As per as I am guessing, if I’m not wrong. I think generally URL is blocked by reporting by other user as spam. Let’s consider once your URL is blocked permanently. You tried changing your Dedicated IP address. But nothing happened from your hosting side. Finally, you think there is problem with your domain. Yes! So, you can’t change your domain name.
Thus, for sharing link on Facebook we can take help of reputed Google Blogspot platform. Yes, I’m not kidding! This is the requirement of this trick. So, you can easily bypass Facebook warning and captcha while sharing blocked link. As we all know that, we can use subdomain of Blogspot too many times. Also, it is 100% free to create a blog on blogspot. Using one Gmail account you can create up to 100 blogs. Again, Facebook will never send you any warning. Just follow these simple steps to learn how you can easily post a blocked URL. First of all it is important to unblock your URL.
Steps To Unblock a URL on Facebook
- Sign in to your Google Blogspot account
- Create a new Blog with unique url
- Go to Setting > Basic. Update Privacy for listing in Search Engine to ‘NO’.
- Go to template option, Find the gear button at Mobile Template option, choose ‘No, Show desktop template on mobile devices.’
- In your blogspot dashboard, scroll down the Template page and click ‘Revert to Classic Template’
- Turn off navigation bar, since it is not required
- Now Replace all HTML code with this below code which I have shared in little box after this paragraph.
Before clicking on Save button, make sure you do some minor changes in Open Graph tag as per your requirement. I’ve mention that complete guidelines in HTML comment line.

After obfuscating, the code will look like this
Technically, let me explain you my concept.
Suppose your URL is 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 specially for your blocked web page using Blogspot. And there you need to add a redirection process with a timeout of atleast 1 second. Whenever you will share link on Facebook, the Facebook Security system will detect landing page till blogspot rather the final redirected location. Hence, technically you are going to replace the path after few second to the blocked URL.
At the landing page which you have created through blogspot, there you can add ‘Open Graph META tag’ to change the look of shared link similar to the original Facebook Link post. Thus, a person is still able to visit your blocked link even facebook blocked your domain. I think, now a days, almost all browser supports the redirection. I have tested this trick on various device. It is working fine.
Instead of sharing your original blocked link on Facebook, just share your blogspot URL. If anyone will click your blogspot URL. Then he/she will redirected to your target page(which has been blocked by Facebook).

- You can also assign Facebook default App ID for better performance.
<meta property="fb:app_id" content="966242223397117" />
If you wish, you can also create your own app id and use it in above HTML code. It will make your link more authentic and safe.
- Don’t get afraid if Facebook says “Image size is more than 8 MB.” Just today, I checked it is a Facebook Bug which gives false alarm. LOL 😀
- Image don’t appear? Just fetch the blogspot URL at debug tool and wait for 15 mins. (Yeah, it take some time)
