The following buttons always display the same count (which is the count of the page without the querystring) despite being different urls:

<div class="g-plusone" data-size="small"

<div class="g-plusone" data-size="small"

However, the state of whether I've clicked them is tracked individually.

You can see a sample page with both of these buttons on here.

What's going on?

I did once have canonical tags for both of those urls that would've pointed to the same URL. but it was only up for a few hours at most; and has been gone for a few days. If this was the cause, how do I fix it?

Your og:url tag is currently:

<meta property="og:url" content="http://prodct.info/chromebooks/" />

Should it not be the unique URL of the page? Be sure to test any changes with Webmaster's Structured Data Testing Tool

Description of og:url:

The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph.

  • I went to the Webmasters Structured Data tool and got We do not detect any structured data on your site. I can't find any info suggesting that Google+ uses this though (not would it explain why the buttons states are individual); but I'll try removing it. Oct 22, 2014 at 12:17
  • Removing this doesn't appear to have made any difference. Oct 27, 2014 at 16:40
