[SmartCrawl Pro] Incorrect character limits on Title and Description?

Hi awesome WPMUDEV team,

Just a question about Sitecrawl character limits which seem to be too long in SmartCrawl?

SEO Title
Sitecrawl says 50-70 characters recommended, however they should be kept under 60 to display properly:

Description
Sitecrawl says 135-300 characters recommended, however Google truncates between 155-160:

Can you please confirm why these are longer than Googles settings? It just means we keep writing descriptions that are too long :slight_smile:

Thanks!
Ben

    Hello Ben

    I appreciate the feedback on this! :slight_smile:

    Please keep in mind that all of these limits are actually recommendations as there aren’t any hard-limits set by Google.

    Despite that, I’ve already shared this with SmartCrawl lead developer for further consideration. If there’s any development on this, we’ll keep you posted here.

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris

    Hello Ben

    Our designers replied that some new feature will be included soon, so you can control the exact limits. This will happen so each user controls that the way he wants, as like I mentioned before, all of these are recommendations, not hard limits, also Google doesn’t always truncate at the same exact length, so it’ll be more useful for the majority of users. :slight_smile:

    Thank you,
    Dimitris
