How To Prevent Your Facebook Ad Account From Getting Banned

There are several reasons why your ad campaigns are being put down by Facebook.

And the sad news is that, for most of the time, the platform doesn’t provide any sort of explanation as to why it is banned or how you can reinstate ad campaigns.

If your account got banned for some reason, then you’re not alone! Many business managers experience such instances as well.

And if you want to know why and how to remedy the situation, then this content is what you’re looking for!

In this short article, we will tackle the issue of why your Facebook ad account is banned? How to fix it? And how can you prevent it in the future?

So without further ado, let’s get into it…

Why your Facebook ad account is banned?

As mentioned earlier, Facebook ads don’t seem to offer any explanation of why your adverts are in violation of their policy.

The platform may put your account down and banned it even if you think you’re sure that you’re in compliance with their rules and regulation.

You will only receive a banner notification upon logging in that you are in breach of contract. Other than that, there is no additional explanation of why this is the case.

However, some of the common reasons why your Facebook ad account is banned are the following—

Trigger words

Some of the trigger words include sale, buy, share, free, and like, just to name a few of them. (1)

And the reason why this is the case is that it seems to evoke force reach. Now, this particular element may also be the reason why some promotional emails are being directly sent to spam emails.

Facebook also doesn’t want spammy gestures such as phrases that are in all-caps and with multiple exclamation marks.

Another trigger words are those that may arise offense to the general public. So be careful what you include in your descriptions.

Failed transactions

Another reason that they may shut down your Facebook Ad account is if you have numerous transactions that have declined payments or failed orders from customers.

This is a huge red flag, and Facebook may ban your account once they picked it up.

Low-Quality Landing Page

Facebook will also evaluate the landing page of the advertiser to ensure the safety of its users.

A low-quality landing page possesses the following traits—

  • It doesn’t contain sufficient information about the owner of the landing page.

  • The website has many pop-ups.

  • The landing page has many advertisements that are misleading.

  • It contains a lot of errors like videos not playing, broken links, poor image qualities, etc.

How do we fix the issues and prevent them from being banned in the future?

As I emphasized earlier, Facebook doesn’t seem to provide an explanation of why they’re banning you.

Yes, it can be really frustrating, especially if you truly believe that you have followed and pretty much sure that you are in compliance with their terms and conditions.

And the truth is that we may never be certain what the real cause is.

But one way we can effectively tackle the situation is through continual modification of the product description until they lift the ban.

Now, this could take a while since we are not sure which specific element of your ads is in violation of the policy.

But a good way to start is to try changing words or how you described the items in your ads.

You have to continue changing up your product description until your product(s) are approved.

Or, you can maybe create another description and see how it goes from there.

If it’s still continuously being rejected, then the products might not be the reason why your Facebook ad account is getting banned.

To address this situation, you have to go over your webpage because the problem may lie in there.

As mentioned earlier, you have to double-check the quality of your landing page—is your webpage in accordance with Facebook terms and conditions?

And then, you have to be certain that you’re making smooth transactions with your customers with no declined payments or whatsoever.

It may be challenging to do this process, but there’s no other way around it. You have to persist until Facebook stops banning your accounts.

Lastly, you have to learn from this experience so that you can prevent this from happening again.

Final thoughts

I do hope that my content has somehow helped you improve your online business and prevent your Facebook ad account from getting banned.

As I said, it may be frustrating because the platform doesn’t seem to offer any reason why your account is being banned.

You put up your Facebook ad one day with the thought that you’ve followed every guideline in their terms and conditions, but then they ban your account the next day without knowing why.

Again, it is something that you have to figure out yourself. You need to continue modifying your account and ad campaign elements until the platform approves it.

Yes, it could be burdensome, but it is what it is.

Because of the popularity of Facebook, it has the greatest potential when it comes to promoting your brand. Therefore, we have no choice but to abide by their rules and regulations.

Well, I believe we’ve covered sufficient grounds here!

Thank you for the time, and I hope to see you on the next topics!
