Incoming page referrals from Facebook search pages?

    I was just wondering why my blog was getting referrals from Facebook search pages, since there is no way I can see my blog being linked in a Facebook search. Here's an example:

    Yesterday

    Referrer Views

    http://facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fanonymousteenager.wordpress.com%2Ftag%2Funiversity-of-portsmouth%2F&h=b4416b4a3606896d20ba917fd2b7c378 1

    The blog I need help with is anonymousteenager.wordpress.com.

  2. How are you updating your own Facebook pages?
    Are you using publicize?

  3. I have similar referrers in my stats. I believe it means that someone posted a link to your post on their Facebook page. Unless you are their "friend" on FB and signed in, it would not take you to the page where it's linked

    Yeah that would make sense, thanks.
