What is it?

Microlink for Meta is a data extraction service that take a URL as input, giving you structured data as output.
The data detected is unified and normalized from different data source providers present on the semantic markup of the target URL, such as Open Graph, JSON+LD, oEmbed, microformats or regular HTML.

How does it work?

It's a rule-based system called , where the desired value (e.g., the title) will be searched over the content according to a series of rules.
Also, this process ensures the value extracted follows a specific data shape. So, not only the value should be present, it needs to satisfy a specific data shape as well.
In this way, if the service detects the value, you can be sure that is what it claims to be.
