One of my articles randomly went nuts on Facebook last night, according to my traffic stats. I'm VERY curious, where the root of this is coming from - is there a way for me to find out where on Facebook my article was linked or must it remain a mystery to me?
I'm afraid it is going to be a mystery to you. Here's the thing about Facebook, the best thing about the place are the groups.
I'm going to say that what is most likely to have happened is someone shared one of your articles in a large Facebook group which is about whatever the article is about.
One of the things I've done to find whose sharing my article on FB is do search for the article title or the topic if it's not too generic. Usually, the post will be in the search results.
I don't think shares on personal pages or groups show up when you search for the URL on Facebook. Posts on Facebook pages do however come up in search results.
Thank you everyone! Wesman Todd Shaw must be right, it has to be in a private group somewhere.

One of my Hubs has suddenly started to receive Facebook traffic - so someone has added it as a link - how do I find where it is on Facebook? Just intrigued to see who shared it!

So, I just logged in after almost 18 hours without power, to discover that my article on The Woodmen's Circle Home is getting slammed with traffic. It usually gets under 100 views in a day. So far today, Google Analytics says it's at almost 10,000 views, and rising.I can trace it back as far as...
