Why does Embedly choose the image that it does?

Embedly looks at the following attributes of the page and then ranks and scores the images.

  • If the oEmbed type is photo the url of the oEmbed object
  • The thumbnail_url of the oEmbed object if the oEmbed type is not photo
  • The Open Graph og:image property
  • The meta image_src tag.
  • Any images found in the API response.
  • Images ranked and pulled from the body of the page.
