The 2019 Instant View contest is over. View results
The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Link Preview

Issue #1

URL description is a copy of the tile.
X Æ A-12
This is a one-off content issue, description meta content is wrongly set. I see that you set the subtitle as a description, and I do that too - but only if og:description meta doesn't exist. If it exists, that's what I prefer, since that's the standard - they set it manually knowing that that's what'll appear in link previews - so it might be more suitable than the subtitle, and I don't want to change of what they want it to be.
The first related link here for example has a different description from the subtitle - your template ignores that and forces the subtitle to be the description. See in my template:

If it would be constantly repeating the title, of course we would have to force the subtitle to correct it, but that's not the case. It’s a one-off, also sharing this link anywhere will show this description. It's their issue, not my job to fix it.
Declined by admin
For many domains, using site's meta can be fairly unreliable. However, after checking quite a few articles on this domain, it does seem that using the og:description can be overall okay for this domain.

So in this specific case, it does seem like an issue with the source page and not with the template.
