    What is latest update About Meta description..?

    hello friends,

    What is latest update About Meta description..?

    Google increased the max characters shown in the search results snippets box to 320 characters but now it seems Google has cut it down to 160 or less characters over the past week. I've been hearing for the past week that Google is showing searchers a lot fewer details or characters in the search results snippet, but waited it out because Google is always testing stuff.

    Meta descriptions can be any length, but Google generally truncates snippets ~300 characters (this limit increased in December 2017). It's best to keep meta descriptions long enough that they're sufficiently descriptive, so we recommend descriptions between 50–300 characters.

    May 2018 SEOs started noticing a reduction in the length of search snippets back towards the previous 155 characters. On 14th May Danny Sullivan from Google confirmed that search snippets are now shorter than they have been over the past 6 months, but longer than they were prior to the change at the end of 2017.

On 14th May Danny Sullivan from Google confirmed that search snippets are now shorter than they have been over the past 6 months, but longer than they were prior to the change at the end of 2017. He was unwilling to commit to a specific target length for meta descriptions explaining that snippet length is dynamic. However, he did direct people to this article providing guidance on how to write an effective meta description.
