Editing metadata of website..
is it possible with yola?
not just for the google webmaster...
i am talking about facebook shares..
whenever i share my blog post there ..no thumbnail shows up..
i need to edit metadata so i can show thumbnail of my choice on side of facebook share..
i think its very important ..people mostly click links with pictures on facebook and its a great marketing oppportunity..

Hello redbookastro

As a Yola Silver customer you can add meta data to a section of your Yola website. Please be very careful doing this because if you add incorrect code, your whole Yola website may break and even not be accessible again. Any code you add to your site is added at your own risk.

To get to this section, click on Site > Site Properties > Tracking > Site Tracking Code. The "Header Code Ex: Metadata Tags" field is on the right-hand side. Paste the code in that field and then click on "All Settings" in the top left corner to commit the change and return to the Site Settings menu.

As far as we know, if you use the URL for the blog post, Facebook should pick up any images and will choose text, but there isn't a way for you to control what that is.

If you'd like to try it, though, you can add an HTML Widget at the top of your Blog Page. You will need to know what exact code you must add there. Please test this on a test page first because if the code you add is incorrect, the page may not be accessible any more, and you will need to delete it.
