    The length of a meta description is not fixed and can vary between search engines. However, keeping your meta descriptions between 120-160 characters long, including spaces, is generally recommended. This is because search engines often truncate shorter meta descriptions, and longer descriptions do not necessarily perform better. Writing clear, concise, and descriptive meta-descriptions that accurately reflect the page's content and are relevant to the user's search query is essential.
