When starting a new business advertising is one of the most important steps a small business can do to grow their business. What’s equally important is the cost, when there is not a lot of cash flow coming in small business owners must be smart with what capital they do have and make sure they are making more than what they spend. Some of the best ways of advertising don’t come from spending astronomical amounts of money but from the homegrown movements i.e.  Facebook, YouTube, Yelp. Today we are going to focus on Facebook and when you try to share a link it chooses the wrong thumbnail. Without fail every time you want to post a link to share with your customers or friends it chooses the worst thumbnail to display. The following steps are going to guide you through how to change your thumbnail image to the image that you desire on WordPress themed site.

Step 1:

Go to the dashboard of your website and look for the SEO tab on the left toolbar.


Step 2:

Click into the SEO tab and proceed to the Social sub tab.


Step 3:

Once you’re in the social sub-tab you should see accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and so forth, for this article we are just focusing on Facebook. Click on the Facebook tab and then you will be given an option to upload an image URL. This will be the thumbnail that Facebook will display.


Step 4:

Now that the thumbnail image has been selected you have to go to this link: Insert the URL to your website and then click debug. This will populate to another page that will show you details about your website. The only thing we care about is the Scrape Again button. Click this Scrape Again button until you see the updated image in the debugger preview.


Step 5:

It’s fixed! Post your website with no worries of it displaying the wrong thumbnail.
