Open Graph Meta Tags


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

Defines the image that appears when a web page is shared on social media platforms. It ensures the shared content is visually appealing and contextually relevant, enhancing click-through rates from social shares.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:image" content="https://example.com/og-image.jpg" />
Specifies a well-optimized, properly sized image with the recommended aspect ratio, ideal for sharing across various social media platforms.
<meta property="og:image" content="https://example.com/high-quality.jpg" />
Uses a high-quality image that represents the content of the page, enhancing the attractiveness of the shared content.
<meta property="og:image" content="https://example.com/tiny-thumbnail.jpg" />
Specifies a very small image, which may result in a pixelated or unclear image when shared, reducing engagement.
<meta property="og:image" content="" />
Leaving the content attribute empty means no image will be displayed when shared, missing the opportunity to catch users’ attention visually.


  • Optimize Image Size
    Ensure the image’s size is optimized to load quickly without sacrificing quality. Large images may cause slow loading times, affecting user experience and shareability.
  • Care About Aspect Ratios
    Use an image with an aspect ratio of 1.91:1 to maximize compatibility across social platforms. This ratio ensures the full image is displayed without cropping.
