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 ...

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!

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 ...

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.

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.

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 vocabulary Schema.org doesn’t offer a property for this purpose. Schema.org defines the type LikeAction, but this is for representing the action that something has liked (or can like) something. (The type UserLikes is deprecated, but wouldn’t help anyway.) You could represent with Schema.org that your article is the object of multiple LikeAction items ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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.

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.

They are obviously not quality likes, you can usually buy an 100 of them for 10 dollars. But still buying fake likes can be of benefit for two things: Until you don't have 25 likes you are not able to view FB page statistics. People visiting your site might be well impressed by seeing the FB widget that shows 500 likes. Far more impressed than adding fake ...

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 ...

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'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 ...

Facebook does not allow you to link the likes on your site and on your page. In fact, every page on your site can have a different number of likes. Likes cannot be transferred between pages on your site or between your home page and your Facebook page. The only time that likes can be consolidated is if there are two Facebook pages with the same topic. ...

Most likes are related to the current page you are browsing on your site. On the other hand, profile likes are related to your facebook page off your site. You need to make a facebook "profile" like in order to assimilate to your "like count" on the facebook profile. So when you are making the like button, use this as the url: ...

Hmm, I think you may be in the clear as far as using the word "like". If they had it protected, there would be a ™ or something similar on all their buttons and they would speak of the protection of the word in their branding found at https://www.facebookbrand.com/. On their brand useage PDF it speaks of it in scope of an image and says the following: ...

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? ...

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.
