[Publish] Why does LinkedIn sometimes show a different numbers for clicks?

This article relates to the Posts Report under Analytics.

LinkedIn un-shorten links before they are displayed in the link preview below the text. Unfortunately, we're not able to gather analytics for the un-shortened links in the link preview. We are, however, able to gather click counts for clicks on the shortened link in the update text. This can sometimes result in a discrepancy in the analytics data, depending on where the update is receiving clicks. We're so sorry about this limitation.
