After going through all the headaches of trying to add OG Tags to my WordPress (and failing), I wanted to know if OG Tags mattered. Do they? Well, yes, I found a great article online that talks about how OG Tags don’t just help advertise your website on social media, but also how OG Tags increase your overall social media activity. The article, “Social Media Meta Tags: How to Use Open Graph and Cards” discussed how one blogger increased his Facebook activity by a significant amount once he implemented OG tags on his site.
After implementing Open Graph tags, I was able to increase my Facebook traffic by 174%, simply because now there was an image next to my Quick Sprout status updates.
So, I guess OG Tags can be beneficial. Plus, they really do look pretty. I am determined to figure out how to use these magical items.
