The meta element can’t have a src attribute, and if it appears in the body, it must have a content attribute.

If the value is a URL, you must use the link element instead of the meta element:

<link property="" href="" />
  • Thankeeeeeee ! I to do "<meta property="image" content="htmlkurss.xyz/Bilder/Virtualbox.png" />" , now come not problem in validator.w3.org and Google .

  • @biotza: It’s still an error, even if the W3C Validator can’t detect it. As I said, you must use link if the value is a URL.
