Problems with metatags

  • Hello,

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

    After temporary disabling WordFence and the cache plugin and resaving the Home Page, I have been able to get the right content in the Facebook Sharing Debugger Tool, could you check it?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi ALberto.

    Thank for your answer.

    Unfortunately what you say is an occasional event.

    It also happens to me that sometimes the Facebook Debugger tool collects my meta tags, but it’s only for a few seconds..
    If I do the test immediately afterwards, I have the same problem again.

    I just checked, like you said, and I’m still having the same problem…

    Hello,

    There are a few reasons for the Facebook (or any other social network like WhatsApp) not picking your images and other social tags. We will list them below so you can check which one applies in your case:

    1. First and foremost, you must check the page source of the URL in question. Search for the og:image tag like in this Video:
    https://i.rankmath.com/aJCccE

    If the og:image tag is not found, that means Rank Math is either disabled or not able to print your social tags. Once done checking if Rank Math is enabled, you must check why it isn’t able to print social content by following this troubleshooting guide:

    Make sure to follow all the instructions carefully.

    2. Assuming the og:image tag was found in step 1, we can proceed to find the issue.

    Scenario 1: You are using minification on your website and your cache plugin is inputting too much inline CSS into your page source that your OpenGraph tags are pushed way too down your page’s source:

    If this is the cache, you must move your inline CSS to a file because Facebook and other social networks will only look for OpenGraph tags in the first 60kbs of your page’s source. If they don’t find it, they will assume you haven’t added them. They don’t want to waste their resources crawling huge pages looking for OpenGraph tags.

    Scenario 2: The gain browser cache option in most cache plugins like W3 Total Cache is known to not play well with Facebook’s OpenGraph detection. If you have it enabled, disable it. The option for W3 Total Cache is at WP > Performance > Browser Cache > HTTP (gzip) compression

    Then, clear your website and server cache (including Cloudflare – if enabled)

    Once you are done, you might want to test again here:
    https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

    Click the Scrape Again button:
    https://i.rankmath.com/A5z7WK

    You should now see the OpenGraph tags update including the image.

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

    Thank you.
