Adding a query string creates a different count


Here is the issue I am having: has a total count of 100

That same url with a query string added to the end (for tracking purposes) has a count of its own (currently 14).

I have set the canonical link in the head.

Why is the count not 114? Am I doing something incorrectly?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.



URL parameters are considered unique components of a URL, unless they are standardized tracking parameters such as those used by Urchin-compatible analytics software. For best results, I recommend explicitly defining the data-url in each Tweet Button declaration.


Thanks for the very quick response.

If I use the following tool, will the share count work as expected:

Thanks again for your help Taylor.


P.S. Sorry if this is a duplicate post. Something wacky happend last time I tried to add it.
