Is LinkedIn reading OG tags from the landing page correctly.? Mine isn't


#1

MY OG tags is working correctly for FB and G+ but LinkedIn is not reading it correctly. When i add the LinkedIn share button i am unable to determine where it is picking up the content from. Anyone has any suggestions on this.

Thanks,
Vinay

Hi Vinay - Have you already tried to share your page on LinkedIn before adding the OG tags? LinkedIn caches pages (I believe it’s for a week) and unlike FB, there’s no developer tool that you can use to force it to re-scrape the page, so if you’ve shared the same URL previously, you’ll have to wait up to a week before LinkedIn will grab the newly added OG tag data for the same link.

Hi Quinn,

Yes, i came to know a few days back that LinkedIn caches pages on weekly basis and they also don’t have a debugger.

Thanks,
Vinay
