LinkedIn Cache problems effecting a Link Preview

Below is an example of a post I recently shared on LinkedIn. You can see it pulled the thumbnail and description however this was the old information. Left post incorrect / right post correct, 

IC Web Design LinkedIn Cache
In order to stop the cached content being pulled through you need to add a query string to the end of the URL.

Example is pulling in old content for the thumbmail and title as the post has previsouly been shared on LinkdIn previously. 


Add query string to the end of the url 

By adding the query string the post information wont be cached by LinkedIn and the URL will still resolve to the original URL.

Once you have added the query string you can then remove the query string, leaving your original URL. LinkedIn will then have the up to date Open Graph tags.
