Optimize Google Sharing

When content is shared to Google +1, Google generates preview information for the user. If your content is being shared to Google but isn't showing a proper preview, there are some specific things to look for.

Specifying Google page tags

To instruct Google what to display, you need to specify Google-compatible meta tags, and update your HTML schema. Here's how:

<!-- Update your html tag to include the itemscope and itemtype attributes --> 
<html itemscope itemtype="">  

<!-- Add the following three tags inside head --> 
<meta itemprop="name" content="AddThis Tour" /> 
<meta itemprop="description" content="Watch the AddThis Tour video." />  
<meta itemprop="image" content="" />
