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:
Now when they click like, it will add a like to the profile itself. Every page on your site that displays the like snippet will show the count of likes on your facebook profile.
Obviously if your facebook profile has 0 likes, the button will show 0. Not sure why you would have a facebook like button without creating a facebook profile in the first place...it's just common sense that if a profile doesn't exist there will be no count source right?
