Link Instances in visit not aligning with visits to target page





I am comparing visits referred from Page A to total visits of target Page B. There is no other way to reach Page B except via one link on Page A. I am counting the referrals from Page A by a specific link instance occurring in the visit. 


Currently the number of visits with the link instance are half that of the total visits to Page B. Direct visits to Page B is not the issue. I don't expect them to match, but I also don't expect them to be so different.


I'm not looking for solutions, just possible causes. Thank you!

If both the pages are on same domain, user can have multiple link instances but will count as a single visit. I would rather compare specific link instances on Page A vs pageviews on Page B.
