How does meta-mapper.com work?
The concept of meta-mapper.com is very simple. meta-mapper.com is based on so called „meta tags“ which are snippets of text or images which are related to a website, i.e. blog posts, websites, or other content. „Meta Tags“ are hidden for the „normal“ users, but they exist in HTML and they are readable for computer programs. The main goal of meta tags is to describe your website/product in a way, which is, i.e., relevant for SEO or social sharing.
The most important tags are the „title“ and the „description“ tag, and most websites also using the „image“ tag (og:image), which is commonly used for social media links, which also have a „preview image“. Many services, i.e. facebook, whatsapp, telegram …, were using these meta information to show additional information to a link which is getting shared. For a more detailed (and technical) description see HTML meta Tag
meta-mapper.com works in a similar way, it uses these tags to generate a „preview“ but also with the opportunity to have an image editor, which makes it easy to create an attractive image from any website, which can be shared on any social media tool/service in a very simple way.
