    When I share the link on Facebook, the link preview comes up as:
    ‘Blog
    This is just a short excerpt about your blog.’
    I have no idea how to change it so it can say my site name and tagline….
    Please help!

    The blog I need help with is strivefor65.wordpress.com.

    Hi,

    When you’ve changed an article headline or site name, it takes Facebook a while to display that new information.

    If you don’t clear the cache, the headline at the time of publish will continue to travel on social, until Facebook crawls your site again. Here is a great article that explains how to clear the Facebook share cache: http://sarahmarshall.io/post/97000108533/how-to-clear-the-facebook-share-cache-or-update-a

    I just cleared the cache and the new site title and image have now been picked up by Facebook. Try again and let me know if it’s correct now.
