SEO: I had to change my SEO site description, but it will not change

Hello,

 

When I first started my blog I plugged in my SEO site description, and unknowingly misspelled a word. I changed it, but the change simply will not show up when I post my blog site on my FB page. This is very frustrating. Can someone explain to me how I can fix this?

Hey @river-E!

 

What site was it that you changed this on? It sounds like we just need to clear Facebook's cache with their debug tool, so if you let me know the site address I can do that for you.

Hello Adam,

 

Perhaps you're right in that it's FB's issue. The Fb website I posted my Weebly blog address to is:   www.facebook.com/RiverEno

 

You're absolutely correct! I just emailed my blog address to another email and the site description is changed!  Sorry to act so excited, but I've been fussing with this for two hours!  

 

Thank you for your help!

Hi:

 

I'm having the same problem, I caught a spelling mistake and changed it a few hours ago, but when I post the link on FB it still has the mistake on it. 

 

Ideas on how to change this?

What is the URL of the page you're sharing to Facebook, @IVaicius? I'll take a look.

Ok, can you try sharing again? I used Facebook's debug tool to scrape new info from your site.

Just saw this forum... I'm having the same issue. But my description hasn't changed on Google either. It wasn't changing on Facebook, and I just Googled my own site to see what came up, and it's still the old description there too. My site is www.taylortalks.net. Thanks!

Facebook's debugger tool shows that it's scraping current info from your site, @TayTayK02:

 

https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/?q=taylortalks.net

 

As for Google, though, they cache information for a while so you'll need to give Google time to re-index your site and update that info.  If you give it some time that should happen automatically.
