We've got what you need!


I guess we all know what happens on Facebook when you paste an URL into a post? Facebook's server automatically grabs the title and description from the linked website and lets you select a thumbnail image from those available on the linked site.

Our RESTful API service is doing this work for you. Our servers will inspect any requested URL and return JSON formatted summary with a title, description and preview image.

WordPress Plugin


It’s very convenient to show link preview info on your WordPress site. Filip Stepanov created a WordPress plugin using our awesome service.

Plugin operates in two different view modes - shortcode and Ajax tooltip on mouse over.

It can be configured to skip image links or downloadable content (by adding exceptions in plugin settings).
