Why do I have to authorize Facebook again if I already did it?

  • It could be that the user who gave permission doesn't have the right permissions on the Facebook page. We need someone with admin, editor or moderator permissions. So for instance, an analyst role would not work.
  • The user who gave permission might have changed their password on Facebook, this would require them to authenticate again with Facebook.
  • More rarely there could some other reason Facebook requires us to reauthorize a page, it only takes about 30 seconds to do it though :)

Why does Facebook ask to connect my personal account if I'm trying to connect a page?

We get this question a lot, but it's simply the way Facebook operates right now. First you connect your personal profile and THEN we can get the Facebook page data that's connected to it. We don't do anything with your personal profile information.

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
