Meta Tag not picked on Linkedin

  • Hi,
    I am writing to you because I see that when I share a blog post on Linkedin there is something wrong.

    Meta tags, image, tilte and description are not collected and this is a problem for me.

    In this Ticket I read that this maybe happens because LinkedIn Now Prefers oEmbed Data Instead of Open Graph, is it right ??

    If this is the problem, how can I disable them from Rank Math?

    Ps: I tried with these plugin: “Disable Embeds” and “Reduce HTTP Requests, Disable Emojis & Disable Embeds, Speedup WooCommerce” but nothing changes…

    Otherwise what is the solution?

    Thanks a lot

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Even though LinkedIn prefers oEmbed data over OpenGraph, this protocol is still supported. I’ve also tested a few posts from your blog and the share data is available on the debugger as shown below:

    You can also test your links on this page to confirm that OpenGraph works: https://www.linkedin.com/post-inspector/inspect/

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Micheal,
    Thank you for your answer.

    I have also tried to verify my links on the Post Inspector, and every time I have the same problem.
    Please look This Screenshot where you see the difference between Facebook and Linkedin for the same post.

    Are there no solutions to solve using Rank Math?

    Thanks

    Ps: I had forgotten to report a bug in the Social section.

    I had mistakenly copied the “title” also in the field of the “description” tag, and immediately deleted it.
    But now even if I delete it, the “title” is always visible even in the description field when instead (for Facebook) I would NOT enter the meta tag description. (Here this Other Screenshot)
    The only way to delete the “title” is to necessarily enter a “description”.

    Is it possible to fix it?

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I can suggest that you add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file to disable the OpenGraph tags:

    /**
     * Hook to remove og:tags
     */
    add_action( 'rank_math/head', function() {
    	remove_all_actions( 'rank_math/opengraph/facebook' );
    	remove_all_actions( 'rank_math/opengraph/twitter' );
    });
    

    This will then make it possible to add any third party plugin that generates the OpenGraph standard.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Ok, Thanks.

    I also discovered that using a short link by bit.ly, i solve my problem on Linkedin 😉

    Hi.

    I just left a review;)

    But again I have the problem I described in the post!

    For days I shared links on Linkedin using shortlinks from bit.ly (for example: https: //bit.ly/2L9uAoY) and everything was OK: the image and title metatags were collected perfectly.

    Suddenly, despite continuing to use short links, I have the same initial problem again! In addition, even the old posts already shared days ago, have lost the correct meta tags !!

    What happened?
    How can I solve ???

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    It seems like your website is too slow to respond and that is why LinkedIn is not able to scrape it.

    This is the error I am getting when testing your website on their inspector.
    It took too long to get a response for this URL, so we will not scrape this content.

    Please try to improve your website’s speed and then try again.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Ok,
    It’s strange… i’ll check it.

    Thank you..
