How to delete "created using create-react-app" from links?

I am trying to post the link to my portfolio onto linkedin and it always shows up with "Web site created using react app" as the description, which definitely doesn’t make it look professional. It is deployed on my domain but is there any way I can get rid of all the create-react-app default stuff on my domain link?

  1. change the description and the title from your index.html file in the public folder then Rebuild your app

      <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <link rel="icon" href="%PUBLIC_URL%/favicon.ico" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1" />
    <meta name="theme-color" content="#000000" />
    <meta
      name="description"
      content="Web site created using create-react-app"
    />
    <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Muli:300,400,600,700" rel="stylesheet">
    
    <title>React App</title>

  2. Hi I’ve recently encountered this tonight.

    You’ll need to add these meta tags into the header of your index.html
    Also the image size should be minimum 1200×627 (as per the linkedin documentation)

    <head>
        <meta property="og:title" content="*TITLE*" />
        <meta property="og:image" content="%PUBLIC_URL%/linkedin.png" />
        <meta property="og:description" content="*DESCRIPTION*" />
    </head>
    

    If you’re still having issues with LinkedIn recognising the new headers insert the url again but with a random parameter at the end of the url.

    So if your site url is:
    https://www.example.com

    Try adding the link again with the empty parameter:
    https://www.example.com?1

    This should force linkedin to pull the new head data.

    Hope that helps.
