When you add a URL to an email, Mixmax automatically provides a preview of the linked web page. Mixmax link previews are populated using meta tags in the website's
<head> tag. If you want to customize the content that appears in the link preview, you have a few options:
1. Change the Open Graph
If you own the website and can modify the source, you can change the Open Graph
<meta property="og:title" content="" />
<meta property="og:image" content="" />
<meta property="og:description" content="" />
2. Add Mixmax-specific tags
If you own the website and can modify the source, you can add the Mixmax-specific tags listed below:
<meta property="mixmax:title" content="Free unlimited email tracking, scheduling, polls, and surveys for Gmail | Mixmax" />
<meta name="mixmax:description" content="Send engaging emails with instant scheduling, free unlimited email tracking, polls, and surveys right in Gmail." />
<meta property="mixmax:image" content="https://mixmax.com/images/microsites/features/entrepreneurs-compose.png" />
The same restrictions as in #1 apply.
3. Build a custom link resolver
If you don't own the website and want a custom preview in Mixmax (we do this for Instagram links, for example), you can just build a customer link resolver according to these instructions. If you build a custom link resolver, you'll also need to host it.
Go to the Link resolvers overview to see the instructions.
Disabling link previews
You can disable link previews from your Mixmax Dashboard Settings. Click the Composing tab, then look for Message Options. Un-check the box for Link previews — see the screenshot below.
You can also convert individual link previews back into text. Hover over the link preview, and click Show as URL beneath the link preview.
