A lot of short URLs get blacklisted by websites, email servers, and search engines. For example, a few years ago, Google blacklisted Bit.ly
Maybe the ActiveRain Short URL is getting blacklisted by some websites or social media sites (?)

Hi Dave - this is a stat I don't track so I don't pay attention to it.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel
As far as I know they are separate counts
Tony and Suzanne Marri...
beyond my paygrade....
I believe that this is a separate set of stats, used primarily to test a different place to share links.

I do not know. I do not look at or track that data on the AR platform. I know someone will have the answer for you.
I'll defer to Right Said Fred Griffin I have no clue but parked and learning.
Have no clue David

Never gave it a thought until you asked the question. Above my paygrade to provide an answer!
We don't track this...we keep our eyes on the bottom line. A
I don't know the answer to this and I stopped using short links... I found they have a very high incidence of breaking and then it's a bear of a job to go back to posts and correct links. Plus what Fred Griffin said. I heard about this blacklisting quite a while ago.
I do not follow the number of views.
total views, to my understanding include short url views.
I thought quite a while ago, this was irrelevant.
That is worrisome since I always use the short URL. I'll have to back and check some of them - thanks for the heads-up.
It is great to see your chart. That is something I've been wondering and now it's evident that they are separate number of views.
I don't know and I don't use the short links.
Jeff Dowler, CRS nailed this one!
I'm pretty sure they are separate stats, David.
David Martin (703) 585-4687 - interesting observation!
My guess will be good for nothing...
That I have no clue about. Sorry.
Never heard of the black listing. Prefer to use longs.
Can't help you with click counting. Can't remember when the changeover happened but they did explain it.
