Making a landing page image a "featured image" for LinkedIn

My co-worker has told me that my predecessor was able to tag images on Marketo landing pages so they would appear as the featured image when the landing page was shared on Linkedin. I'm not able to figure out how to do this. Also I've added an image to the landing page by drag/dropping the image icon, and I'm not able to add alt-text. I did this because the rest of the landing page is all tokens. If I add the image to the token portion it doesn't show up in Google (or so I've ben told). Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

Alisa Goldschmidt​, you can do this using the og:image tag, like so:

Share on LinkedIn | LinkedIn Developer Network

<html prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns#">
<head>
  <meta property="og:title" content="My Shared Article Title" />
  <meta property="og:description" content="Description of shared article" />
  <meta property="og:url" content="http://example.com/my_article.html" />
  <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/foo.jpg" />
</head>
<body>
  …
</body>
</html>

You can tokenize this in your program, so if you have a token for "featured image" you could set it up in your meta-tags on the landing page so the featured image would always be the og:image automatically!

Justin Norris - will this only work for LinkedIn or for any site?

I know Facebook uses OG tags too. Not sure if any other sites do.

Justin Norris  I just set the Featured Image token and used the HTML above in the HTML editor in the token. I replaced the title, description, landing page URL and image URL, and saved. But all that appears it the 3 dots in the body. Do I need to put the URL of the image there again? Sorry - I'm not much of an HTML person (obviously!).  Thanks for your help.

Your http://pages.rightscale.com/images/puppetchef.png​ is a bad link (redirects to your home page).
