Facebook/Bit.ly can't read meta tags

  • All of a sudden, Facebook sharing has stopped working on my site. It’s been working smoothly for the past six months, whereby FB correctly displays page title, image and description, but it suddenly can’t access the meta tags.

    Furthermore, bit.ly can’t read the page title either. I can’t see any reason why this would happen and I’m fairly certain I’ve not made any changes that would cause this to happen.

    Here is an example:

    Any ideas what might be causing this issue?

    The FB debugger says when it attempts to crawl the page, the following is returned:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/strict.dtd">
    <!-- <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> --><html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0.1">
    <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
    <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1">
    <title></title>
    </head>
    <body><p></p></body>
    </html>

    None of that code is in my headers, so I’m really stumped.

    Any help greatly appreciated!
