Social Media Meta Tags

Canonical links

A canonical tag is a way of telling search engines that a specified URL is the master copy of a page. You may specify this URL to prevent issues that arise as a result of duplicate content.

Duplicate content may arise when the same content is published to multiple URLs and then indexed on all those URLs by the search engines.

By using the integration of the canonical link, you can indicate your preferred canonical URL. Note that search engines may still choose a different page as the master copy than the one you specified.

Custom HTML snippets

Sometimes you need to add custom HTML to the <head> or the <body> tag of your project. This can be custom scripts, styling, or even content.

In Vev you can add HTML in the project itself, but you may also add the code via this integration. The latter is recommended if you want to add the snippet to all the projects that are published to a given hosting.

Custom scripts

Sometimes you may need to add a custom script to the <head> or the <body> tag of your project.

This you may do in the project itself, but you may also add the script via this integration. The latter is recommended if you want to add the snippet to all the projects that are published to a given hosting.

You are allowed to specify the URL of the script, where it should be placed, as well as whether it should be deferred or loaded asynchronously.

Meta tags

Meta tags always go inside the "head" element of a webpage and are typically used to specify a character set, page description, keywords, author of the document, and viewport settings.

Meta tags are essentially content descriptors that help search engines know what the web page is about.

Open Graph metas

Open Graph meta tags are snippets of code that control how URLs are displayed when shared on social media. Having social media metadata on the website is one of the best practices as it will tell how our webpage's Title, URL, Image, Description, site_name, etc should display while sharing.

They’re part of Facebook’s Open Graph protocol and are also used by other social media sites, including LinkedIn and Twitter. You can find them in the head section of a webpage. Any tags with og: before a property name are Open Graph tags.

Requirements

To turn your web pages into graph objects, you need to add basic metadata to your page. The four required properties for every page are:

  • Title og:title - The title of your object should appear within the graph

  • OG Type og:type - The type of your object, e.g., "video.movie". Depending on the type you specify, other properties may also be required.

  • URL og:url - The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph

  • Image og:image- An image URL that should represent your object within the graph.

Open Graph: Article
