    NextGEN Facebook Open Graph+

    Add to List

    NextGEN Facebook uses your existing content to create meta tags + Schema markup — there’s no need to manually enter / configure any additional settings or values, but if you want to, you can customize just about anything and everything. 😉

    NextGEN Facebook creates complete and accurate meta tags + Schema markup — including hashtags, video seo, e-commerce products, author profile / authorship, co-authors, publisher information, ratings, event details, recipe information, and much more — all from your existing content.

    NextGEN Facebook offers special optimization features for Pinterest — providing an image for the Pin It button, excluding non-relevant images, and preventing conflicts between incompatible Pinterest and Facebook meta tag values.

    NextGEN Facebook includes advanced quality control features and options — checking minimum / maximum image dimensions and aspect ratios, verifying the webpage for duplicate meta tags, showing notices for missing and required images, along with theme header template validation.

    NextGEN Facebook can enhance and integrate with your favorite SEO plugin! — NextGEN Facebook specializes in providing all the meta tags + Schema markup social sites and search engines need, and you can still continue to use your favorite SEO content / keyword analysis tools!

Additional Free extension plugins are also available for WPSSO, including two different types of sharing button extensions:
