If you plan a campaign on LinkedIn, setting the correct display of the link and the open graph protocol (thumbnail) for the landing page is crucial. It is worth defining them earlier to determine how the landing page thumbnail should display – this will increase your chance to get more leads.
Add a landing page open graph
- Log in to your Smart Pages account and go to the editor of your landing page.
- In the toolbar on the right side, find the Page Settings tab and click Additional options.
To return to Page Settings when editing, click on the arrow:
- Go to the Social share tab. Enter Title and Description. Click Upload thumbnail to add your open graph image. Save and close.
- Publish your landing page and copy its URL. Share it on your LinkedIn page.
Important: Remember that changes you make in the editor may be visible on LinkedIn within a few hours.
Sometimes, just after making changes in the editor, open graph may not display correctly. Then follow the steps below:
