I changed a website from one name to another but the "description" refuses to update. The original was a shopping site and the current one is something else entirely but the shopping site description keeps coming up if I paste the link in Facebook. What can I do?

Hello ajohndrow

Have you published your website?

Also, do you have any other text on there or something in there? It might just need to update, how long has it been since you applied the description changes?

Can you post your site's URL too?

Thanks,
Nathan

Hello ajohndrow

Sometimes what happens is that Facebook caches information on their side. I suggest when adding your link to your Facebook page, that you try changing the URL (to: http://yoursite.com/index.php?page=new) and it should pull the up your latest changes.

Replace the yoursite.com with your domain URL.

I hope that helps!
