Improve the appearance and ranking of WordPress Posts, Pages, and eCommerce Products in Google Search and Social Website shares
NGFB Open Graph+ adds HTML meta tags to the head section of WordPress webpages for improved Google Search results / ranking and sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr and other social websites.
NGFB Open Graph+ adds Open Graph (Facebook), Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and (optionally) Search Engine Optimization meta tags to the head section of webpages. These meta tags are used by Google Search and most Social Websites to describe and display your content correctly (title, description, keyword tags, images, videos, product, author profile / authorship, publisher, etc.). See a few examples from Google Search / Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, and others.
NGFB Open Graph+ is a complete social sharing solution that 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).
NGFB Open Graph+ is fast and tuned for performance, and unlike most plugins, makes full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching).
NGFB Open Graph+ only loads the library files and object classes it needs, keeping it small, fast, and yet still able to support a wide range of 3rd party integration features.
Aside from the additional support for Twitter Cards, the main difference between the GPL and Pro versions is the integration of 3rd party plugins and services.
Images and Videos
NGFB Open Graph+ detects and uses all images - associated or included in your Post or Page content - including WordPress Media Library image galleries and embedded videos from Slideshare, Vimeo, Wistia, and Youtube (including their preview images). WordPress Media Library images (and NextGEN Gallery in the Pro version) are resized according to their intended audience (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc).
NGFB Open Graph+ (Pro version) integrates with WordPress SEO by Yoast and All in One SEO Pack, making sure your custom SEO settings are reflected in the Open Graph, Rich Pin, and Twitter Card meta tags.
NGFB Open Graph+ (Pro version) also supports WooCommerce v1 and v2, MarketPress WordPress eCommerce and WP e-Commerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for Facebook Products, Twitter Product Cards and Pinterest Rich Pins, including poduct variations (size, color, etc.) and additional / custom images.
Forums and Social
NGFB Open Graph+ (Pro version) supports bbPress and BuddyPress (see the BuddyPress Integration Notes), making sure your meta tags reflect the page content, including appropriate titles, descriptions, images, etc. Social sharing buttons can also be added to bbPress single template pages and BuddyPress activities.
NGFB Open Graph+ comes with several sharing buttons, that you can optionally include on Post / Page editing pages, above / below your content or excerpt, bbPress single pages, BuddyPress activity entries, as a sidebar, widget, shortcode, or even a function call from your theme template(s). Each of the following sharing buttons can be enabled, configured, and styled individually:
The Facebook, Google+ and Twitter sharing buttons support multiple languages. A default language can be chosen in the NGFB Open Graph+ settings, and the Pro version switches the sharing button language with the webpage language (WordPress locale). NGFB Open Graph+ can also include hashtags, from WordPress and NextGEN Gallery tag names, in the Open Graph (Facebook) and Pinterest Rich Pin descriptions, Tweet text, and other social captions.
NGFB Open Graph+ (Pro version) allows you to customize the field names, label, and show / remove the following Contact Methods from the user profile page:
Try the NGFB Open Graph+ plugin with complete confidence - when uninstalled, NGFB Open Graph+ removes all traces of itself from the database (options, site options, user and post meta, transients, etc.).
NGFB Open Graph+ support and development is on-going. You can review the FAQ and Notes pages for additional setup information. If you have any suggestions or comments, post them to the WordPress support forum or the Pro version support website.
