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 ...

They're using microformats, specifically hCard and hCalendar. Along with RDFa and JSON-LD, this is an alternative to microdata. See Google's Rich Snippet spec for people here, and here's my public LinkedIn page viewed with Google's structured data testing tool, showing a preview Rich Snippet and the extracted structured data.

I solved this with the following: const img = new Image(); img.src = `https://dc.ads.linkedin.com/collect/?pid=${linkedinPixelId}&conversionId=${linkedinEvent}&fmt=gif` Here's a link to the LinkedIn documentation which wasn't obvious to find: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/93957

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 ...

To have it hidden from search engines - add a robots.txt with the following content: User-agent: * Disallow: / Place the robots.txt in the root directory of your website/application. To make it available for others to see at a competitive rate, put your site on Heroku or perhaps create a droplet on Digital Ocean for £5 a month. You do not need a domain ...

Your image request is actually returning a 308 response, directing to: https://robertcooper.me:443/api/og-image/Building with feature flags?readTime=6 Note the addition of the port and the %20 s being returned to spaces. Also, I seem to recall in the past that LinkedIn got upset if the og:image path didn't look like a file (e.g. ending in .jpg or .png).

You probably use a share plugin together with the login plugin? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/linkedin/consumer/integrations/self-serve/share-on-linkedin?context=linkedin/consumer/context

Thanks for all the input Stephen. I have finally got a solution. I've placed a tag like this <div [innerHtml]='linkedinPixel'> and am filling this variable with a proper link via service.

You should use Open Graph standard's <meta> tags in the <head> of your HTML page. Like so: <html prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns#"> <head> <meta property="og:title" content="My Shared Article Title" /> <meta property="og:description" content="Description of shared article" /> <meta property="og:url" content="http://...

Yes, first you need to define a conversion. Easiest way to do it without custom programming is to define URL Conversions. For this, you must have unique URLs which only happen when conversion is made (e.g. a special URL on a thank-you page which is shown only after conversion is made). When you have conversions setup, there are reports which allow you to ...

As you are using iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security), it may be the case that your .htaccess contains: RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^Link [NC,OR] This seems to block the LinkedIn bot from visiting your page (to get the metadata). See the discussions: WP Better Security LinkedIn Problem Better WP Security Blocks Open Graph Data And the bug ...

It is against Facebook terms of service to create accounts that are not real people. Other social networks have similar policies. So it is not possible to create a persona (or multiple personas) for your company that can accept these requests. On Facebook, your business presence is handled by your business's Facebook page. You can switch to acting as ...

Not sure if this helps but I had the same problem. Transpires that you can be charged for clicks on your company logo and company page in your LinkedIn ads. As these don't direct the visitor to your website, they don't get logged in GA, or any 3rd party analytics package for that matter - yet they're still chargeable. Very underhand, so I'd recommend ...
