        Also, just to be clear, there is no 160 character limit for the meta description. There may have been at one time but these days Google routinely displays meta descriptions as long as 300 characters, sometimes more. You shouldn't worry about character count too much when giving a description so long as it is accurate and generally brief.

          Google limits you to 320 characters currently.
