Learn how to use the og:determiner meta tag to improve your site.

Specifies the word that appears before this object's title in a sentence. An article determiner sets the tone of the entry when shared on social platforms.


Prepends "a" before the title.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="a" />
Prepends "an" before the title, use for titles starting with a vowel sound.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="an" />
Uses "the" to signify specificity or uniqueness of the title.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="the" />
Automatically selects "a" or "an" based on the title's initial phonetic.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="auto" />
Omits the article determiner entirely, default behavior when tag is not used.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="" />

Code Examples

<meta property="og:determiner" content="a" />
Setting og:determiner to "a" for a webpage with a title starting with a consonant sound.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="an" />
Using "an" as the determiner for a page whose title starts with a vowel sound, enhancing readability on social platforms.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="the" />
Incorrectly using "the" for a general webpage title can mislead the audience about the content’s uniqueness or specificity.
<meta property="og:determiner" content="auto" />
Relying on "auto" for titles that start with a silent "h" may result in awkward determiner usage, manual selection is advised in such cases.


  • Choose Based on Phonetics
    Use "an" for titles starting with a vowel sound, not just a vowel letter, for natural readability when shared.
  • Consider the Context
    Context of how your content will be shared is key. "The" can make your content sound specific and important.
