What is meta description length?

What is meta description length?

Everything Wordpress

I am covering all areas except the Meta description length. I keep getting messages such as this "The meta description is over 160 characters". Where is the meta description

Hi, Faye

You should put your keyword in the first paragraph of your article and make sure that it appears in your meta-title and meta-description.

Your meta- description should be 160 characters or less. I always write a custom meta-description to be sure it includes the keyword.

Google may change your meta-description, but it’s still a best SEO practice.

I try to make my first few lines as exciting as I can to draw people into the blog. If not I will change my meta description to entice people to click. I also include my main keyword in the meta description if possible!!
Hope this helps

Your meta description is probably the default first 160 characters of your page or post. It will l just truncate if it is too long and that is ok. Other wise you can edit and customize it. if you are using a mobile, input one or two characters then you are able to delete it.
If using laptop place cursor in back of them and press the back space key.

How to delete Just Another
To change (Just another WordPress site), go to wordpresss backoffice scroll down left hand side to settings (not SEO) > then general. Edit the meta description (site tagline) and save changes. Refresh the browser CNTL + F5.


So, it doesn't matter if it is too long?

I try to adjust mine so that’s it’s in eye-catching and draws people to my site

Thanks for responding, Abie gave me what I was looking for. The meta description is the page/post description shown within the Google search results.

You can see it at the bottom in your WordPress back office.

Thanks Abie. You always have my back. So, my page /post description is too long.

Most welcome!

I have another question... How do you keep your meta description within 160 words? I guess I could pay more attention to the word count as I am typing that first paragraph.

I presume you are using the SEO framework, I keep the lines green.

Um... You have lost me, keep the lines green? This particular article is ranked 84/100 which is green. Is that what you are referring to?

Yeah :D
