    Our fan page have 150'000 fans with good reach and likes for posts. How ever something is a bit fishy....

    A typical post for us with 150'000 fans get 2000 likes and 20 shares.
    A typical post for competitor A with 450'000 fans (3x larger) get 4000 likes and 160 shares.
    A typical post for competitor B with 1'500'000 fans (10x larger) get 6000 likes and 400 shares.

    All competitors get a lot more shares per like than we do. Our like numbers are really good but I'm afraid something is broken when the competitors have so much more shares than we do with not that many more likes.

    When people are sharing from our web site the share count isn't counted towards the post, I'm thinking that this could be the reason for our competitors numbers being better. Is it even possible to link a share button on the web site so it counts as a share of the post? If so, how?
