    Hey guys,


    Is there anyway to find out how many likes a specific URL have ? Let's say no "facebook like" plugin is displayed on the page. How can you find out the number of likes that particular URL got?


    Social signals are now being used by Google and I assume that Google is able to detect how many facebook likes your URL have.

    My question is more:

    Is Google able to automatically detect how many Facebook likes an URL have while crawling?

    Use this :

    <a href="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=yoururlhere.com" target="_blank">
    PHP:
    https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=yoururlhere.com 
    Append your url to that removing yoururlhere.com and you can see the number of likes to your url.

    Best tool to see how many Facebook likes a URL has is LikeExplorer.

    I can't share a URL for LikeExplorer on here so use you imagination as to what it is...

    SEO quake toolbar is all you need. It shows stats about Facebook, Twitter and G+.
