Is there an easy way to see how many shared a particular link to one page of your website?

You can go to your facebook account to know about it and you just see your link to get the details about shared links.

Use the google URL builder, its designed for making track-able urls for adwords but I customise it for Twitter, newsletters etc.

I don't know if I'm allowed to publish the url but type URL builder into your search bar click through and add the details into the little boxes.

This will generate a URL that will appear in your Analytics when its clicked.

This may not tell you how many people shared a link but it will tell you out of those people how many followed the link back to your site which to me is more important.

Hope this helps

That is a neat idea. Do you use a code to obfuscate the tags, or do you just put in plain english tracking words?

You would use a tiny url code for the tweet anyway because the link would be massive, but in general I use plain English so long as its not visually messy.
