Welcome, everyone! today I’m going to talk about SEO meta description length. In addition to this, I’m also going to present the meta description max length and the optimal one. Without further delay, let’s begin.
As you know, seo meta description is a very impotent part of a website’s SEO. However, if you want to know more about that you can visit one of my other articles on that subject here:Does meta description affect SEO? [2019 UPDATED].
The recommended description length : 2019
At the time of writing this article, the directive from Google specifies the recommended meta description length at 150 -160 characters.
Meaning, you are going to want to hit that spot. On one hand, you don’t want to make it too short. On the other hand, you don’t want to overdo it as well. In my opinion, I found that the length that works best is at about 150 – 155 charterers. Furthermore, you can count your text length at this free and simple online tool (there are hundreds of those online, just search character length count.
Lets move on to the maximum length it can hold.
SEO meta description character limit
I talked about the optimal length, let’s talk about the limits. In general the limit of meta’s stand at 160 characters. Meaning, if you overdo it, it will become irrelevant. Moreover, if you try to spam unrelated meta at the description tag you will simply not rank.
For instance: if I write an article about cars, let us assume its because it’s easier to rank at the cars keyword. However, I fil the meta tags information about boats to promote my yacht affiliation for example. , well then basically, this article will never rank.
To sum up our subject of SEO meta description length
