        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 (?)

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 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.

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.

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.
