Google Reportedly Extends the Length of Page Titles in Search Results
September 30, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google appears to have extended the length of titles in search results snippets, according to a recent report. RankRanger‘s tracking tools show the average length of page titles in search results has increased from 55 characters to 83 characters on average (at the time of this writing). Here is RankRanger’s original tweet from earlier in the week, although the average length of page titles has increased even further since then. As you can see in the graph below, this is an increase that occurred gradually throughout the month, before spiking on September 29th.
