Well this is very very strange. Last week, I posted ( on my blog ) an interesting story regarding marketing-photographers marketing for themselves and others. I then linked it to Facebook on August 10 and received many comments, “likes” and personal correspondence regarding this post. Analytics shows Zero clicks on 8/11 and just one click on 8/10. Similarly, a blog article entitle "Roughneck" (originally written for was posted to Facebook on July 22. On Facebook, “Roughneck garnered 113 “likes” 4 comments and one share. Yet bizarrely, Google Analytics shows ZERO clicks on July 22, 23 and 34.
Might there be a war between Facebook and Google?? ...or… has something gone awry with my analytics tracking code?

Did you add any campaign tracking to the link in the post?
What report did you use to check these statistics?
To make bad day worse, spend it wishing for the impossible
