WARN: No metatags found


#1

cards dont seem to work but no one responded unfortunately…


#2

Does anyone have any ideas? I’m fairly certain I’ve exhausted the troubleshooting checklist to no avail…


#3

can someone PLEASE help? Is this question really that hard?


#4

What’s the URL? What have you tried?


#5

ive gone through the checklist


#6

Looks like your server is not returning a valid HTTP Content-Type header - see the third bullet point on this page.


#7

I have < meta http-equiv=“Content-Type” content=“text/html; charset=utf-8” /> in my head.

I don’t understand why the bot isn’t detecting this…


#8

It is detecting that, but that is on the last hop after the redirect. Before the redirect, there’s no HTTP header.

curl -A Twitterbot http://vere.cc/topeka -v
*   Trying 198.187.29.27...
* TCP_NODELAY set
* Connected to vere.cc (198.187.29.27) port 80 (#0)

By comparison…

#9

So should I delay the time before redirecting to give the bot more time to detect the tag? Is that possibly the issue?


#10

i see


#11

I’m not talking about the content of the web page, the web server itself is not serving content that our crawler can understand (per the log examples I shared)

The crawler cannot execute Javascript so that solution will not help.

Your Apache web server needs to provide a valid content type header at the protocol level.
