Open Graph - Yoast Plugin?

Msg#: 4654458 posted 1:37 am on Mar 16, 2014 (gmt 0)

Is anybody else familiar with open graph. I host my site using Wordpress and sell items via the WooCommerce plugin.

I noticed today that one of my pages was ranking for an unrelated keyword. For some reason when I look at my source code I have a "og:brand" code that does not relate at all to the item sold at the same product page. Also og:description is off too. For og:description it's using the short product description. Why not the meta description? I can live with that, but the og:brand is just very random and unrelated. Why can't it pull the focus keyword?

I think this can't help me because if we are getting any juice from facebook links, the juice is not good.

How improtant is open graph to Facebook? Should I just disable it.

On the homepage, og details looks good. og:description is copying the meta description, og:title is the page title, but on other pages like product pages... I'm getting weird og:brand results.

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with implementing open graph on WordPress sites. If it's more in the way than useful, then I'd take it offline till I figured it out.

Do you know what plugin or part of your theme in putting in the open graph data? You mentioned Woo and Yoast in the subject. Haven't ever used Woo, but I've had pretty decent luck with Yoast's plugin on most things.
