I’ve updated featured image on my home page however Google is still crawling an old image.
I’ve refreshed the page and cleared caches but it still not showing the one that I see set up as a featured image.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Are you using an SEO plugin?
Have you also checked if your Server is cached, or if your site is using a CDN?
thank you for your quick reply. Yes, we are using All in one SEO plug in.
I’m not sure if our server is cached, we are using Rocket.net for hosting and don’t use CDN.
We also have installed WP rocket plug in and I see there is a note “clear and preload cache” not sure if I should click on that or not.
I’m sorry, as you can see I’m not very technical.
No problem! Thank you for confirming.
Can you share the link to the site in question so we can check it?
Can you also share screenshots of a post’s featured image, and how it shows in Google?
This is the page: https://ironlab.ca/
this is the featured image on the page (screenshot) https://1drv.ms/i/s!AmpLdkOwl-irg6QBP7DC2rEag_086w?e=MXwo1C
and this is how it looks on Google now: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AmpLdkOwl-irg6QDx2LoKwKshZQqfg?e=wtb9lv
I’m sorry I am not sure how to attach a file here so I’m sharing link of the images instead.
Please let me know if you can see them.
Your Server has cache. Can you try asking your Hosting Provider to clear that to be sure, and the ask Google to recrawl your site?: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/crawling-indexing/ask-google-to-recrawl
thank you for your help Fernando. Much appreciated.
Hi Fernando, are you on Upwork? I may need some more 1on1 help. Thanks
I am, but, I haven’t been active there for some time now. My focus currently is here solely with GP. There are some good developers here if you need one: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1113359788719597
But, if you want help from me personally, you can raise a new topic here or you can reach out to me in UpWork if you prefer it there and I’ll see if I can help you with it.
