My company does a lot of microsites for sweepstakes. These sites always include a tweet button. We’ve been having problems with the tweet buttons not updating the count. some of our sites have been around months and the count is stuck at a certain number, others, they go up and within a few weeks they’re done. In that time the tweet count stays at 0, but if I search for the tweeted url (full url, not short) I get plenty of results.
A few months ago, I was asked to look into the issue and discovered that the data-counturl on some sites was set to the same short url used for data-url. After reading documentation I changed that so the counturl was set to the full resolved url (including query string) and it worked. However, that was back in June, and the last 3 microsites we’ve done since August using the same method are not working.
Here’s the code:
here’s the latest page using that code. http://getinspired.urbandaddy.com/signup/thanks
