Search Engine Guideline SeoBingMetaDescriptionLength


Meta description tag is too long for Bing. Bing recommends keeping the description text under 160 characters in length.


The major search engines all have different limits for meta description length, and these limits have changed over time. Avoid descriptions close to the limits to avoid problems when the limits change again.
