How long should your meta description be

When Google increased the length of search descriptions to 320 characters back in December 2017, SEOs got a little too excited and started re-writing meta descriptions for their sites. So it’s no surprise many started freaking out in May 2018 when Google unexpectedly dropped the length back to 160 characters.

In other words, Google wants authentic, quality content in search. You don’t need to read between the lines to understand that Google wants people to focus on improving the quality of their content instead of tweaking meta description examples to lure visitors to their sites.
