Onebox works only radomly

@msellers Do you know why the one box function of pasting a link on its own line only works sometimes with some links? Is there some kind of guideline to formatting the link so it works reliably?

Examples below – one where it works and one where it doesn’t

It is related to the actual website that you are trying to include. If they have proper formatting it will work, but if they don’t publish enough metadata it is not able to do it.

Here is some additional information, but as Mitchel said, it depends on how the linked site is formatted.

Onebox visits the destination page and checks for Open Graph or oEmbed tags, including:

  • site address
  • title
  • feature image
  • description (mandatory)
  • product price
