Open Graph Meta Tags


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

Defines the canonical URL of your page that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph. It's crucial for ensuring content consistency across sharing on social platforms.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:url" content="https://example.com/page.html" />
Specifies the absolute URL of the page, ensuring social platforms can accurately identify and link back to the content.
<meta property="og:url" content="/page.html" />
Using a relative URL can lead to incorrect or failed content rendering on social platforms.
<meta property="og:url" content="https://example.com/different-page.html" />
Using a URL that does not match the page's canonical URL can cause inconsistencies and dilute the page authority.


  • Always Use Absolute URLs
    When specifying the og:url, always use the absolute path (including the http:// or https://) to avoid any misinterpretation by social platforms.
  • Match the Canonical URL
    Ensure the og:url matches the canonical link of your webpage, if specified. This consistency helps avoid duplicate content issues and strengthens page authority.
