bonus tip:

Use Short Slug

Always try to use shorter slug url for your article. instead of using complete article title in slug its better you use your main keywords in slug url.

Use HD Images

its important that you use images with good resolution. Nothing disappoints more than bad images. So make sure that you use images that have good resolution.

Bonus tip: if you want to get featured image of already published article you can get that through these websites.

  1. https://debug.iframely.com
  2. https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

I personally prefer iframely. its fast and provides results in seconds.

Avoid Grammar And Spelling Mistakes

It goes without saying really that you need to use proper english without any spelling or grammar mistakes. Don’t expect your reader to stay on your website if your english is poor.
