Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags

I realize many of my readers are hardcore FB fans but if you are not aware of this fantastic tool for marketing your website then here are Cole’s notes on how to use Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags.

Images should be Square for open graph stories 600 px by 600 px.

Displays that have a higher resolution then the image size should be at least 1080 pixels in width.

For non-open graph stories, the size should be at least 600 px by 314 px or an image ratio of 1.91:1.

1:1 image ratio should be used for ad creatives to give the best performance for images that have link ads.

All FB supported images can be used as an example .jpg, .png, .gif etc.

The og:type is a type of website that you would like the site to be categorized by such as a blog, article, website, etc.

The below information goes between <head> & </head> tags in your html code. Remember to put your information in the content section.

<meta property=”og:title” content=”ENTER YOUR PAGE TITLE” />
<meta property=”og:type” content=”ENTER THE TYPE OF CONTENT” />
<meta property=”og:image” content=”<ENTER YOUR IMAGE LOCATION” />
<meta property=”og:site_name” content=”YOUR SITE NAME” />
<meta property=”fb:admins” content=”ENTER YOUR FACEBOOK USER ID HERE” />
<meta property=”og:url” content=”ENTER YOUR PAGE URL” />
<meta property=”og:description” content=”ENTER YOUR PAGE DESCRIPTION” />

Here is an example. It is simply amazing that if you share a link with someone and if they post it on their FaceBook page and will advertise that page for you.

<meta property=”og:title” content=”Amazing Content. Resource to Knowledge.”/>
<meta property=”og:type” content=”website”/>
<meta property=”og:image” content=””/>
<meta property=”og:site_name” content=”Comprehensive Resource for Marketing Tools and Useful Stuff”/>
<meta property=”fb:admins” content=””/>
<meta property=”og:url” content=””/>
<meta property=”og:description” content=”Information on where to get the best programs, find the best links, the best tips and tricks, how to make and save money.”/>
