There are multiple, and most require active participation on part from the service that your article's url is being used in. The receiving service would then "ping" the originating server (your blog), and that way your blog could collect and produce the "reblog count".

The umbrella term for these techniques is called "Linkback".

You have omitted necessary details from your question to give a more specific answer. One cannot know the reblog count of some site without some integration work. The link you provided is Facebook's service, which most probably counts only reblog-counts that happened inside Facebook platform. – Gima Apr 13 '14 at 14:43
@Gima: I'd tend to agree that the question lacks important details, but there is the "tumblr" tag and "reblog" is a term fairly specific to Tumblr. My initial read of the question matches yours. – Al E. Apr 13 '14 at 15:05
@Gima as Al E. said the reblog is just for tumblr and I gave facebook link as an example which gives me the number of times the specified url shared on facebook, so I want to know if there is a service on tumblr like facebook service I provided earlier – Ya Basha Apr 14 '14 at 8:52
