Following Google's new announcement we've changed the search results snippet's length

In December last year Google increased the search results snippets' length, only to change it back to the previous 160 characters, 5 months later. You can read more about it in Search Engine Land's article

Following this announcement, in the beginning of 2018 we've decided to change the SEO rule concerning meta description legnth in our tool and increase the number of acceptable characters to 300. 

Now, with the new announcement from Google, we decided to go back to the previously used 160 characters, since from now on this is what Google will consider when showing search results' descriptions.

SiteAttention Changes Concerning Length of Meta Description

Following the recent Google announcement about the changes in acceptable meta description length, we decided to make small changes to our plugin. As Google did not specify the new acceptable maximum length of the SERP snippets, our tool will supports the newest meta description length recommendations that most of the leading SEO companies on the market agree on. 

 

The new specifications we use in our tool are as follows:


Meta Title: 

 

- the maximum length of 65 characters including space is unchanged,

- since the interval between 40-65 characters is said to be the most optimal for meta title, our tool will now show that the content is optimized when the number of characters stays within 40-65. 

Meta Title length

 

Meta Description:

 

- the new optimal length for meta description should fit between 260-300 characters
