  • Hi,

    When coping and pasting a web page url into email, usually a description& image are automatically added under the link in the email’s body.

    When testing an email share button on my site, I realized that the url is shared in the email’s body – but description & image are NOT added.

    Can you please help me figure out how to fix this and have the description & image of the shared page added under the url?

    From some reason, it doesn’t pull the image from my web pages with the link (the description is pulled). Any idea what may cause it?

    You can try copy and paste url from my site and see…

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    The meta tag is output correctly. The image works. I don’t see any blocks in your robots.txt file. Facebook debugger shows the image correctly.

    Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an obvious reason why Yahoo Link Preview would not display the image. I’d recommend reaching out to Yahoo support for advice.
