Make sure social websites present your content in the best possible way, no matter how your webpage is shared — from sharing buttons on the webpage, browser add-ons / extensions, or URLs pasted directly on timelines and private messages (PM) — the WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) covers all the bases in one fast, light-weight, and full-featured plugin.

A solid social meta tag plugin is the foundation of any good social strategy — WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) gives you total control over all the information social website crawlers need, improving Google Search ranking, social engagement, and click-through-rates on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and many more — independently of any social sharing buttons you may or may not already use (sharing buttons are not required).

Tired of average and sub-standard social meta tags from other SEO plugins? — WPSSO Pro automatically retrieves and uses information from a wide range or sources, including All in One SEO Pack, bbPress, BuddyPress, Co-Authors Plus, Easy Digital Downloads, HeadSpace2 SEO, NextGEN Gallery, MarketPress - WordPress eCommerce, Polylang, rtMedia for WordPress (BuddyPress and bbPress), The SEO Framework, WooCommerce, WP e-Commerce, WordPress REST API, Yoast SEO (aka WordPress SEO), Yotpo Social Reviews for WooCommerce, along with service APIs like Bitly, Google URL Shortener, Gravatar, Ow.ly, Slideshare, TinyURL, Vimeo, Wistia, Your Own URL Shortener (YOURLS), and YouTube.

Optional Free and Pro extensionsWPSSO Mobile App Meta for Apple Store / iTunes and Google Play App meta tags, WPSSO Place / Location and Local Business Meta for Pinterest Place, Facebook / Open Graph Location, Schema Local Business + Local SEO meta tags, WPSSO Schema JSON-LD for Google and Pinterest Schema.org markup (BlogPosting, Article, Place, Product, etc.), WPSSO Ridiculously Responsive Social Sharing Buttons, and others.

Complete Social Meta Tags

WPSSO adds Facebook / Open Graph, Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and Search Engine Optimization meta tags to the head section of webpages. These meta tags are used by Google Search and all social websites to describe and display your content correctly (title, description, hashtags, images, videos, product, author profile / authorship, publisher, etc.). WPSSO uses the existing content of your webpages to build HTML meta tags — There's no need to manually enter / configure any additional values or settings (although many settings and options are available in the Pro version). See examples from Google Search, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, etc. — along with screenshots of the WPSSO settings pages.

WPSSO provides the Summary, Summary with Large Image, App (requires the WPSSO Mobile App Meta extension), and Player Twitter Cards — including configurable image sizes for each card type. The Photo, Gallery, and Product Twitter Cards were deprecated by Twitter on July 3rd, 2015.
