Until two days ago, I had 417 Facebook Likes on my website http://www.ridiculouslife.net/ Now i have just 33. Even when I input my url into the Facebook developers Get the Like Button generator it still comes up as 33. Does anyone know what happened and how I may fix it? Thanks A

you have the like button for the site ocdridiculouslife.com
Was the like button initially for ridiculouslife.net ?
In the mean time did you change the URL for the like button or did any kind of redirects ?
Try this to know the issues in your site.

Yes the site was originally ocdridiculouslife.com. I changed the URL to ridiculouslife.net quite a few months ago and have had no problems. Now, even when I input ocdridiculouslife.com into the Facebook developers Get the Like Button generator it still comes up as 33. – Ann Nov 22 '11 at 15:23
Oh yes, and I tried the Debugger and got this warning: Warnings That Should Be Fixed Inferred Property:The og:locale property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags. I have no clue what to do about this. All help is welcome, as I really have no clue what I am doing. Thanks so much. xxx – Ann Nov 22 '11 at 15:57

Did you purchase Facebook Likes for your website? Generally it happens in the case of Fake likes.
