Google Shortens Search Results Snippets After Last Year Expansion

Google confirmed that it had shortened the search results snippet length. The length of the snippets was expanded on December last year. Time spent on increasing the meta description length for Google long search result snippet will be wasted now.

Though Google has confirmed the update, yet they have not mentioned the new length of the snippet. But, the RankRanger’s tracker tool has put the description snippet field at 160 characters (from 300) on desktop and 130 characters on mobile.
