Meta Tags and OpenGraph Meta Tags

Postby mapleleaf » Thu Mar 24, 2011 1:21 am


Using meta tags for/on web pages has been around for 'donkey years'.
Which meta tags do you consider useful and use for your web pages?

What kind of support is being given by WB for using meta tags? Will WB2011 have support for them?

Since WB 2011 will support html5, will they also consider the support for "OpenGraph Meta Tags"? If not then perhaps consider as an add-on product for WB such that support for 'meta tags' and 'OpenGraph Meta Tags' will be provided. I'd be willing to pay extra for this add-on or feature.

Has anyone ever consider "OpenGraph Meta Tags" or is using them and if using them why are you using them?

Here is an example of a listing of the "OpenGraph Meta Tags"

Code: Select all
<meta name="og:title" content="The Rock"/>
<meta name="og:type" content="movie"/>
<meta name="og:url" content="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117500/"/>
<meta name="og:image" content="http://ia.media-imdb.com/rock.jpg"/>
<meta name="og:site_name" content="IMDb"/>
<meta name="og:description" content="A group of U.S. Marines, under command of..."/>
<meta name="fb:page_id" content="43929265776" />
<meta name="og:email" content="me@example.com"/>
<meta name="og:phone_number" content="650-123-4567"/>
<meta name="og:fax_number" content="+1-415-123-4567"/>
<meta name="og:latitude" content="37.416343"/>
<meta name="og:longitude" content="-122.153013"/>
<meta name="og:street-address" content="1601 S California Ave"/>
<meta name="og:locality" content="Palo Alto"/>
<meta name="og:region" content="CA"/>
<meta name="og:postal-code" content="94304"/>
<meta name="og:country-name" content="USA"/>
