Hi, I use the fb like button on my website and recently I added an anchor link that links to the comment part of my articles…
When someone clicks that anchor link the url looks like “nuafvallen.nl/zumba#anchor” instead of just “nuafvallen.com/zumba” (the original url).
The problem with this is that the like is not added to the original url if someone clicks the fb like button after the #anchor is added to the url. Instead the url with the anchor added (nuafvallen.nl/zumba#anchor) is liked. So then I have likes for 2 different pages which are actually the same :S
Is it really likely that many people will click the Like button after clicking the comments link? I can only see that link down at the comment section sitelf, unless I’m missing something, so I don’t see the use of it.
To be honest, I don’t see the point of a Like button anyhow. There is growing evidence that no one cares what you “like”. It’s more powerful to share content from a site. Rather than use any JS at all, I just include a share button that’ has this basic coding:
You just need to insert the page URL and title dynamically into the and [tile] positions. I tested it myself, and this setup doesn’t post the extra #comments part of the URL, even if you’ve clicked on that.
Thanks, i will look at that. Do you have a link to your site where i can see that setup of yours in action? I will test this out on my site later, thanks for the suggestion of using share instead of like, interesting.
