Allow Facebook to Crawl Protected Posts/Pages using Memberium

This Article Applies to

At times when sharing a post on Facebook that links to your membership site, you might have noticed that it doesn’t have any preview, meaning it’s not showing the title, image, and description. This is usually because the post/page that you’re trying to share is protected by Memberium. Such posts that are shared on Facebook will generate less clicks as there’s no preview and people won’t be as inclined to click on it.

Memberium solves this problem by providing you the option to allow Facebook crawler to access your protected content. Once this option is enabled, Facebook will be able to get the images and generate a preview of the content. Your content will still be protected though and people without access will be taken to the page you’ve set.

Enabling Facebook Crawler Access

Under the Content Protection metabox, you can find the option for “Facebook Crawler Access”.

When this option is checked, it allows Facebook to crawl your pages/posts even if that particular content is protected.

To view if the particular page/post is being crawled by Facebook and how it will look like when it’s shared on the social network, you can use the Sharing Debugger tool that’s offered by Facebook.

Note that if the content is not protected, then Facebook will normally be able to access/crawl it, but if the content is protected (using the Content Protection box) then Facebook cannot crawl it and that’s why you’d need to use Facebook Crawler Access option.

So this option is very useful when the page/post is protected but you still want Facebook to crawl it.
