Customize how your Campaign appears on social media with your SEO Settings
SEO information appears on Google searches and social media posts. The title and description will appear on Google, and the title and photo will appear on social media.
SEO title and description override your Campaign details. If left blank, the SEO settings will default to your Campaign's title and description. For social media, there will be no preview image if you don't set one here, as seen below.
