If I put a link into my posts, I see how many people have clicked on the link. But if I put the link on one line, and it gets one-boxed, then I never see any count of the clicks.
This post describes the issue further:
There are two parts to the answer.
First, you must enable opening links in an external tab. (I don’t understand this, technically, as other links are counted without turning this option on.)
So, the main link people will click on will never be counted. Again, I don’t understand the technical difference between the links and why one would be counted and not the other.
Regardless of my lack of understanding of what’s going on technically, I’d love to see Onebox link clicks counted consistently.
