Open Graph Meta Tags


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

Specifies the width of the image used in the Open Graph protocol, helping social media platforms and other services understand the dimensions of the image to properly display it when the page is shared.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:image:width" content="1200" />
Indicates the width of the associated Open Graph image is 1200 pixels, a recommended width for high-resolution displays on most social platforms.
<meta property="og:image:width" content="600" />
Defines the width as 600 pixels, suitable for smaller images or when bandwidth optimization is necessary.
<meta property="og:image:width" content="5000" />
While technically permissible, using excessively large width values can lead to slow loading times and might not be supported or displayed correctly on all platforms.
<meta property="og:image:width" content="" />
Omitting the "og:image:width" property can lead to unexpected rendering issues, where the image may be displayed at an incorrect size or aspect ratio.


  • Specify Width As Early As Possible
    Defining "og:image:width" (alongside "og:image:height") ensures that the image is rendered correctly on the initial page load, without requiring further layout adjustments.
  • Match Actual Image Dimensions
    Ensure the width specified matches the actual width of the image to avoid rendering issues or incorrect aspect ratios when displayed on platforms like Facebook or LinkedIn.
