Hi there, Everyone:

I know this is an obvious one to most, but here goes...

I moved a bunch of pages that had a pretty good number of likes on them (pretty good for my site, anyway).

So, now the facebook like button says 0 likes or 1 like, instead of the 50 to 100 likes that a lot of those pages USED to have.

Is there anyway to "reclaim" those likes?

The 301 redirects are all done properly. I just wished that the like button didn't say 0 Likes because the pages are on a new URL.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I'm aware, there's no way to do this (short of hacking the button in some way). It's another reason to be cautious about URL changes!

fb does not supports anything as such, 301 or related to SEO
