Solution: LinkedIn’s Link Preview Metadata Caching Issue

In Web Business Tips by Matt Chiera0 Comments

Do you have a URL that you posted on LinkedIn, then later changed the metadata (e.g. post image, title tag, meta description), reposted, but the old metadata is still showing up?

Here’s the fix:

  1. Add the link to a URL-shortening tool like bit.ly
  2. Post the shortened URL to LinkedIn (you can delete the post right after so your connections don’t see)
  3. Now you can post the full URL to LinkedIn and your new metadata will show up!

A simple fix for an annoying caching issue.
