Open Graph Protocol by Facebook 2010
Last Update: Jun 3, 2017
I've been noticing some weird things happening when trying to post on to Facebook. Wrong images, no image, needs better text, etc., so I decided to look around and discovered a protocol that was developed in 2010 by Facebook to help with those very issues. It's called "open graph" protocol and I looked at the source code for WA and found it was applied here, very cool. But what about our websites?
See a description of OGP here...
See what the meta tags look like...
Introducing The OGP plugin (read update below)
I will be installing this plugin to see how it works and encourage the early adapters to join me in this effort. Then the whole WA community can benefit from this.
When experimenting on Facebook change privacy to "You Only" and give feedback here.
I did find "social meta" parameters in the All-in-one SEO plug in.. You will need to go to the bottom of the top page and turn it on in the "features" tab .. it is off by default.. more to come.
Thanks for sharing.
You are welcome... I will update this as I validate things... to find this later.. search for OGP
Hey Guys/Gals do me a favor and go to view one of your WA websites, right click and view the source.
Do you see anything like this in your header?
<meta property="og:title" content="Affiliates Make Money" />
<meta property="og:type" content="blog" />
One of my sites has it but my other two don't and they are all WA sites. Wanting to confirm if we need this or not..
I'm trying the Shareaholic plugin and I see references to OGP in the setting so I'm wondering if the OGP code was entered by the shareaholic plugin.
