I found a 331. But, there's no clear, character limit in Meta Description. Anyone can clarify the Meta description length.

    Why exactly are you obsessed with meta descriptions length? You can just leave it blank. Let Google decide what's best for your page.

    Meta description limit is minimum 155 characters and maximum 160 characters with spaces. If you will add more then it will truncate in search results.

    Meta descriptions are HTML attributes between 50-300 characters in length that appear underneath the blue clickable links in a search engine results page (SERP).

    Customarily Google has shown around 160 characters of dark content beneath the blue site page interface, or around two lines of content. The normal length has changed from around 162 characters on November 17 to 228 characters on December 1. With these progressions, numerous outcomes have three to four lines of content. The longest bits are around 330 characters - more than twofold the customary length.

    There is no "character limit". Google has a pixel limit that most people have generalized as "about xxx number of characters". I use this great free tool to see if will fit.

    Google suggest 150 - 160 characters for meta description..
    I think 320 characters meta description limit is not confirmed yet.

    Back in spring of 2015, we reported that Google search snippets seemed to be breaking the 155-character limit, but our data suggested that these cases were fairly rare. At the end of November, RankRanger's tools reported a sizable jump in the average search snippet length (to around 230 characters). Anecdotally, we're seeing many long snippets in the wild, such as this 386-character one on a search for "non compete agreement"

    The limit has indeed increased. Been working on updating all my snippets... I think it's 330 or less, I think. What I noticed though, the snippets would depend on the keywords or phrases typed in the SERP. Google would pull out snippet based on that, what I meant. Just be sure to include targeted keywords or phrases in the snippet.

    Meta Description plays an important role in describes and summarizes the contents of your page for the benefit of users and search engines.
    You can add 320 characters but you should go with 150-160 character because it's an ideal length

    Snippets are the explanatory text found below listings on Google's search result pages. For the longest time, snippets have been limited to 165 characters. Recently though, Google made changes to their result pages to accommodate longer snippets. Today, they can go up to 230 characters, and sometimes more.
