You have no control over them because they are hosted by another provider. And honestly speaking you should not worry about them, it's up to Google, Facebook, etc to handle the caching accordingly to their need. You could potentially proxy the URLs or download the files locally, but I don't encourage you to follow that route. In fact, you may potentially ...

Sources say that Facebook/Externalhit does not respect crawl-delay in robots.txt because Facebook doesn't use a crawler, it uses a scraper. Whenever one of your pages is shared on Facebook, it scrapes your site for your meta title, description and image. My guess is that if Facebook is scraping your site 11,000 times in 15 minutes then I think the most ...

As I understand it, if your site is 100% SSL (and everything redirects to HTTPS, so there is essentially no plain HTTP) then you only need the og:image tag in which you specify the https://... URL. Although, must admit, this is not particularly clear from the OGP documentation (or Facebook Docs) - which seems to imply (by example) that the og:image URL is ...

We have a website that we advertise via Facebook but in Google Analytics only 30-50% of the clicks appear. This is quite common with ad programs, including Facebook ads as can be seen here. As covered there: Facebook Ads reports clicks. Many third-party reporting packages report visits or page views, which may not correspond directly to Facebook’s ...

you can leave the global site tag tracking code snippet on your site, just do not also configure tags for GA pageview tracking within GTM. If it were me, I would remove the global site tag tracking code snippet and configure tags for GA tracking within the google tag manager container. Bit of extra information: Both Tag Manager and gtag.js perform ...

Facebook has a content sharing best practices guide. It says: og:image – This is an image associated with your media. We suggest that you use an image of at least 1200x630 pixels. If you make your image as big as they suggest it shows up as the larger size. Smaller images show up as thumbnails. Here is an article that suggests using 1200x1200 square ...

Here is the official Facebook form for appealing a website block. The form asks you to explain why the block is an error. The help forums on Facebook are full of threads (1, 2, 3, 4) from owners of websites that have been blocked and are asking to be unblocked. There don't appear to be a lot of options when your site is blocked other than appealing and ...

You need to add your Google Tag Manager code in your website. Then, you have two options: Leave it, don't do anything else. Your Google Analytics code will remain as it is and FB Pixel will be added via Google Tag Manager. Alternatively, you can remove the code for Google Analytics from your website and add a tag in Google Tag Manager https://support....

Why do you want to force your users to like your Facebook page when they signup? I would never do this. Imagine you sign up for a page and you notice that they automatically added a Facebook like without asking you. Instead of this place a box with the "Like" button on the page that is shown after signup.

Blogs seem to be all the rage. But do they always fit the situation? I would answer that by testing a blog internal within the company to first test if there are enough topics that could be covered as to create new and interesting content consistently and for a prolonged period, and two whether you can plan the keyword usage effectively enough to create an ...

Your open graph image tag references a blank image... <meta property="og:image" content="http://wordpress.com/i/blank.jpg?m=1383295312g" />

Your current meta description is too long to fit into Google's search results pages. If this happens, instead of truncating the current description, Google often pull content from elsewhere on the page to create a description. This often results in unhelpful, incomplete or widely inaccurate description such as yours. The first thing you should do is ...

You can either edit your image, like bybe says, or you can tell Facebook and Google Plus which image to use by using the Open Graph Protocol. If you create a new image and add it to the meta property="og:image"-tag, they should use that image when people share one of your pages. If you use this, you won't run the risk of Facebook or Google using the wrong ...

I've had a number of agencies tell me that my FB pixels had inflated or false data for the past few months. After some digging around Google I think what everyone confirms as a fix is to exclude traffic from that domain. Simply put GTM renders an iFrame for non-javascript traffic. That iFrame is triggering the FB pixel and inflating the traffic. Wrap your ...

I just tried setting up the default form submission trigger in a client's GMB container and was having the same problem. After a little digging around in Preview mode, I came up with the following solution: Create a second Form Submission trigger and select "Some Forms" under "This trigger fires on". Then set it to fire on submissions where the Click URL ...

You shouldn't worry about it at all. Feel free to delete the record as the only sense of keeping it has been lost since you left Facebook Originally TXT record was intended as a place for human-readable notes, nowadays it mostly turned into kinda stickers-board handling machine-readable data As declared in specification, the data of TXT record should be ...

Introduction According to my comment from question I finally found some time to deal with this problem myself. After reading many articles, and auditing many other site's code I ve partial answer. Most of them are theoretically deduced from given sources. I will update this answer after full implementation of social content on my site which will happen in ...

Considering the fact that the reach of Facebook pages gets weaker each day I would go with a blog on a domain that I can control - you can always share articles on social media. Facebook is good for communicating with customers, but I would not use it as a blog as I would loose control over my content. Creating a company blog is a matter of 2 hours of work ...

Depends on the the site. Most major sites will do rel="nofollow" so there is no benefit. I think networking sites are better for referral traffic and lead generation.

Facebook uses OpenGraph to determine what the page is about if those details are blank it will harvest other elements of the page. So if you want custom descriptions and images used then ensure that whatever page is being linked has the following code in the <head></head>. For example: <meta property="og:locale" content="en_GB" /> <...

There are multiple methods for dealing with unwanted comments, and all of the methods are what Facebook calls "moderation." You must configure some things on your Facebook App page and on your webpage so that you can use the various tools. I would start with the FAQ section on this Facebook Developers page, and find the combination of tools that you like ...

What you are trying to do could technically be classified as cloaking which is a violation of Google's terms and can result in your site being removed from the Google index. Google is very strict in what they class as cloaking and basically the rule is whatever the end user sees the crawler has to see as well. If you are trying to block malicious bots then ...

Google doesn’t seem to be using Facebook and Twitter social signals when it comes to ranking. However, there are obviously still plenty of benefits and marketers shouldn’t cease those benefits simply because there doesn’t seem to be direct relation between those two social media platforms and Google ranking. Here's a link for further understanding -> ...

To remove instant articles you need to: Remove the meta properties tag from your page. To enable instant articles, you installed a tag like this: <meta property="fb:pages" content="123456789" /> Go to the instant articles configuration on Facebook and remove your URL. Here is a Facebook help center page that tells you how to get to it: https://...

Hopefully no one has it in for you to do this! You can place your FB script in a JS file and load it on appropriate pages with a script tag; that way, the actual script won't appear on the page. You can go one step further and minify the code in the file, or better yet, obfuscate your code. There are many tools for this. Here's one: https://...

Back in the day when I used Google Analytics (GA), I had to use javascript code it gave me and embed it into my website in order for GA to track number of visits. The biggest reason why the difference in numbers can be way off between counting visitors directly on your server and counting visitors through GA is because some guests (or more likely some ...

I discovered that GTM doesn't like something about the HTML (probably the page_id attribute). So, instead, the <div> needs to be created dynamically using JavaScript. This is the final code we used: <!-- FACEBOOK MESSENGER CHAT BOX --> <script> // We create the DIV dynamically to work correctly with Tag Manager var chatDiv = document....

https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/1894024420610804 Per the answer from Facebook, any page shared on Facebook should expect that if their content is shared Facebook crawlers will increase traffic 10-20x that number of shares. This sounds like Facebook is scraping the content every single time it's accessed, with little to no caching in place. In our ...
