Open Graph Meta Tags


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

The og:image:secure_url meta tag specifies the secure URL for an image that represents the content of the page. This meta tag is used when the page is shared on social media platforms supporting the Open Graph protocol.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:image:secure_url" content="https://example.com/image.jpg" />
A secure HTTPS URL featuring a high-resolution, properly sized image tailored for social sharing.
<meta property="og:image:secure_url" content="http://example.com/image.jpg" />
An HTTP URL is not secure, potentially leading to warnings or blocking when shared on social platforms.
<meta property="og:image:secure_url" content="" />
An empty content attribute will not provide any image for social sharing, missing the opportunity to visually engage users.


  • Use HTTPS URLs
    Ensure the URL starts with HTTPS to denote a secure connection. Social platforms prefer secure content to maintain user security.
  • High-Resolution Images
    Use high-resolution images to capture the user’s attention. Social platforms often have minimum size requirements for shared images to display them prominently.
  • Compress Images
    Optimize image size without sacrificing quality to improve load times, enhancing shareability across social platforms.
  • Image Aspect Ratio
    Adhere to recommended aspect ratios to ensure the image displays correctly without cropping important details.
