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

Defines the type of content being shared on social media platforms, such as articles, videos, or images. This tag helps social platforms understand and display the content in the most appropriate format.

<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
Specifies that the content is a movie.
<meta property="og:type" content="video.movie" />
Used for TV show episodes.
<meta property="og:type" content="video.episode" />
Indicates that the content is a TV show.
<meta property="og:type" content="video.tv_show" />
For videos that don't fit other categories.
<meta property="og:type" content="video.other" />
For individual songs.
<meta property="og:type" content="music.song" />
Used for music albums.
<meta property="og:type" content="music.album" />
Indicates a playlist of songs.
<meta property="og:type" content="music.playlist" />

Code Examples

<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
Best for blog posts or news articles, helping social platforms present the content with emphasis on the title and author.
<meta property="og:type" content="music.song" />
Ideal for pages dedicated to a single song, allowing social platforms to highlight the artist and album.
<meta property="og:type" content="video" />
Generic types like "video" are less effective than more specific types like "video.movie" or "video.other".
<meta property="og:type" content="website" />
Using "website" for content that better fits a more specific og:type (e.g., "article") may result in less engaging presentations on social media.


  • Accurate Content Type
    Select the most accurate content type for your page to ensure it is presented correctly on social media platforms.
  • Avoid Changing Type Frequently
    Frequently changing the og:type for a URL can confuse social platforms and may impact how your content is displayed or prioritized.
