Hello to everyone,


I have some problem, and in one day happen with my site, that we have the best visitors ever, and one news that I share on Facebook page, shows that link click was  655, but after two days for those same news Google Analytics show me that those number of visiting was  287.

Does anyone how this is possible? Who have real stats?

The ways, that Facebook and GA understand clicks/visits are different, the tracking methods are different also

Facebook will not tell you, but for them "a click" does not mean "a visit".
If someone clicks on your ad/link, no matter if your website page is loaded or not, it will count as click in Facebook , but not Visit in GA
