[resolved] Issue with images when posted to Google+ (9 posts)

    Hello,

    it appears pretty often that feaured images are not published when auto-posting to Google+. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does´nt. In my case I am publishing to my private Google+ and Company Google+ page. Sometimes the picture appears on both pages, sometimes just on one.

    The correct excerpt- or title-text appears every time, but sometimes the image is missing.

    Correct settings are set.

    The answer is in the FAQ - #1.5:

    The FAQ does not answer my question. All settings are correct, all images can be found - as I said, one Google+ account takes the picture, the other one sometimes does not take it. Without any understandable reason. As I said: Settings are correct, image can be found and is not set "after" publishing... the post is complete, then I click on publish, the article appears in the web and the post gets auto postes within 10 minutes (due to my manual cronjob, which fires every 10 minutes automatically).

    So unfortunately no answer yet.

    BTW: PLEASE fix this annoying LinkedIn problem... it is NOT a browserproblem. The account appears again and again. Had to delete it again just now.

    Actually the fact that only G+ is working is the clear indication that settings are wrong. G+ actually ignores all plugin settings and takes the image from og: tags, while other networks use what plugin supplied

    I did not say, that "only G+ is working"? I said, that everything is working but sometimes one of my TWO G+ accounts do not show up the featured image. While the G+ page of my company shows up the correct post with image my private G+ page might show the post but without an image. "Actually the fact that sometimes only one G+ page is working while the other G+ page does not work well is the clear indication that there must be something wrong with this plugin". Right?

    Update: It is not the picture that is missing - it is the whole link to the post. Sometimes on my Google+ private site or Google+ company site the excerpt is shown - but not picture AND no link to the post. But I have always set "Text Post with "attached" blogpost" - but with every new post just one Google+ shows the post correctly... the company site or the private site, never both together.

    Fix?

    Try to set the delay for autoposing. This usually happens when your post is not ready for Google to check.

    I already did. Facebook 10 minutes, Google 20 minutes, the other Google 30 minutes. Did not matter.
