Open Graph Meta Tags


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

Defines the URL of the image that appears when someone shares the content on social media platforms. This tag is crucial for improving the visual appeal and click-through rates of shared links.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:image:url" content="https://example.com/path/to/image.jpg" />
Defines a high-resolution, relevant image that quickly loads and looks great across different devices and social media platforms.
<meta property="og:image:url" content="https://example.com/path/to/small-image.jpg" />
Uses an image that is of low resolution, which may appear blurry or pixelated when shared on social media.
<meta property="og:image:url" content="https://example.com/path/to/image-with-text.jpg" />
Specifies an image with embedded text, risking important details being obscured or cut off on social media platforms.


  • Use High-Quality Images
    Select high-resolution images (at least 1200x630 pixels) to ensure they look good on all platforms. Lower resolution images may appear blurry or pixelated.
  • Keep it Relevant
    Ensure the image is representative of the content of the page. Irrelevant images can decrease click-through rates or even negatively impact user trust.
  • Avoid Text on Images
    Text on images can be cut off due to varying display sizes on different platforms. It’s best to keep important text out of these images.
  • Optimize Load Times
    Optimize image file sizes to reduce load times without sacrificing quality. Slow-loading images may not be displayed timely when the link is shared.
