Hi Friends,

The meta description is one of a web page’s meta tags. With this meta information, webmasters can briefly sketch out the content and quality of a web page. The page description for a web page is usually displayed when the page for a specific query is listed as a snippet in the SERPs.

Since this change, the possible length of a meta description has become about 175 characters. However, because Google does not exploit the full space on each search results page, it is still advisable to keep to 150 characters including spaces, so that the end of the description won’t be cut off.

The meta description is a snippet of up to about 155 characters – a tag in HTML – which summarizes a page's content. Search engines show the meta description in search results mostly when the searched-for phrase is within the description, so optimizing the meta description is crucial for on-page SEO
