I’m not going to get technical on this post like the last one.
I want to show you one of the coolest things that happens with the new version of WordPress 4.4.
Are you ready?
All I am going to do is drop a link into my post…
Now when I include a link, it automatically pulls a rich snippet (preview) like this!
How cool is that?
It’s like embedding a tweet or a Facebook post but this is someone else’s post on a completely different site! WordPress to WordPress.
Try it with a post from Medium, or Linkedin, or even with my post here on your own site.
It will pull in the Title, the Featured Image, the Site Icon (favicon) as well as the text excerpt for that post.
There’s a comment button at the bottom that will bring you right to the post comment section, and that share icon will open up a screen so you can grab an embed code (just like a YouTube Video!)
This makes it even more important for you to always set a Featured Image and write a compelling excerpt for all your posts – but you already do that, right?
What do you think? Pretty cool?
