div class="fb-like" ... data-action="recommend". Otherwise, generate new code. Make sure url doesn't change (e.g. no url -> no url; one url per site -> retain that url) Did you insert Like button code by hand or via plugin? If via plugin, generate the code yourself. If you are stuck, DEBUG!

It's likely that those counts won't be retrievable, except maybe if you change the site structure back. (Don't quote me on that!) Take a look at this post http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/22166/SEO-301-Redirects-Don-t-Pass-Existing-Social-Shares.aspx on their experiences. I have had issues with several social "counting" networks losing those ...

The likes are connected the URL. If you posted the link on Facebook and people liked it the likes will show-up when you put the Like button on your site.

Facebook has Developer Plugins that do exactly what you want. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/guides/web/#plugins <html> <head> <title>My Great Web page</title> </head> <body> <iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=YOUR_URL" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" ...

From the like button documentation: <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/path/to/image.png" /> See that page for several other tags you can also set.

I have been experiencing the same problem and just found a good solution. Specify your old url in your like button html code (fb:like) so that you can fetch your original like/share count. When someone likes it, it will be published on his/her wall as your old link which does not exist anymore. So you need to do two things: 1) Make sure your old url exists ...

You can only scrape the peoples names who have liked the competitions page, however you would need to have access-rights to view those names, and if you don't then the answer is NO. Now, may I suggest you try a different tactic, because you may find that this backfires if you approach all of those people, some people might not appreciate that sort of ...

It's pretty easy, facebook offer a generator here http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/subscribe/ essentially it's a like button with different text.

The only options you can use to customize the Like Box can be found on this page: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like-box/ Other than the options they give you I don't think you are really supposed to change the code around much, as it may violate their terms of use.

Facebook "Likes" are linked to unique URL strings. In your case, your Likes are being split between two URLs: http://printdirect.ru/index.php printdirect.ru/index.php You can test this by using each URL in your original query. To solve the problem, you need to make sure you always specify the same URL when using Like buttons that refer to the same page. ...

Any lightbox plugin will do the job, the content in the box you show is a standard facebook Like button with pictures (you just have to play with their generator settings). This tutorial from line25 "How To Add a Custom Facebook Like Box to Your Site" walks you through it.

Who knows how they're generated. Could be a script, could just be a person in a room creating fake accounts. It doesn't matter how, what matters is that they're fake. While I don't think there is a penalty for this type of thing (yet), they're definitely not going to help. The point of using Social websites as an SEO signal is that if lots of people are ...

The point of facebook is that it is social. The value of a like is not the like itself but the network of people it connects to. Pages arn't popular because they have x likes, they are popular because a natural like indicates a number of real people are recommending to their real friends. So buying fake likes is of very little benefit.

You've probably added a like button that likes the current URL dynamically. This will show the likes of that particular web page as generated here. If you want a like button, but for it to like your Facebook page instead, you'll have to enter the URL to your Facebook page in the URL field at the above Like Button page. Otherwise you can create a widget for ...

You're confusing likes on the page you set up with URL likes. Whilst many of these tools don't work correctly, it is in actual fact not the correct answer here. The Quick Sprout tool you're using shows you FB Likes and FB Shares for the URL you're analysing. This has nothing to do with how many likes your FB page has. As you can see from Facebook's API ...

Google pushes most if not all of the Pagerank to the new page when you use a "301 Moved Permanently" redirect. Google has been ambiguous on the "all or most" point in the past. Here is the latest video that Matt Cutts posted answering: What percentage of Pagerank is lost through a 301 redirect?. After that, lots of people were still confused in the ...

You'll need to overwrite Facebook's CSS. First, create a new FB icon that is twice as big as the original you wish to replace (when scaled down, it will look good on retina). Next, overwrite this this... .sp_like-send { background-image: url(http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v2/yD/x/Q8FTZ0iJJF2.png); background-repeat: no-repeat; display: ...

ionFish is right, you can't transfer those likes, what you want is like forcing all those users who liked your URL to subscribe to your Facebook page, that's technically and legally impossible. But may I ask why do you need a fan page? how do you use likes on your website? do you use a single URL for all pages? or each page has it's own URL in like button? ...

You can measure social engagement in Google Analytics, but whether you can derive their 'source' is a different question (you'd probably have to create a funnel or filter). Google has the details of implementing social tracking here, and more information on the social plug-in here.

Make Tech Easier recently posted a walkthrough for doing this with Google Analytics that doesn't involve registering an FB application. I'm actually not sure why that step is even there(in John's answer); it seems not to be for simply tracking the likes, but so that you can use the Facebook Insights tool in addition. If you want that, fine, but I had no call ...

You can use Google Analytics for this.

A good first step is to run your page URL through Facebook's debugger. It should report any problems with your page that might cause issues with Like buttons.

In the Like Button code there is a place to enter the URL of the page to be liked. If left blank it defaults to the URL of the page the button is being displayed on. If you put the URL of your Facebook page into the Like Button code it should allow you to have a like button for your Facebook page on your website which would show the number of people that ...

Using the Social Plugin - Like Button you can't tell it to like a direct facebook object (update, comment etc.) For this you will need to use the Facebook Graph API for Posts.

The page http://www.addthis.com/social-plugins/facebook-like-button states a different namespace to that mentioned above. It should be: <html xmlns:fb="http://ogp.me/ns/fb#"> I've just tried it and it works fine, my counter is back.
