How many characters can I have in my title and meta descripton? How many characters is this!? Save a few seconds and paste your title tag here and check the length of your character string.

Enter <title> Tag

Best practices for title tag length say that your title should no more than 60-80 characters. An important number to keep in mind is Google's maximum title threshold of around 65 characters. Anything longer and your title starts to get truncated. For example,'s title tag runs 159 characters long. Google SERPs truncate it down to just 53 characters.

Enter Meta Description Tag

Meta descriptions can be a bit longer. In late 2017, Google increased the 165 character limit (about two lines) to sometimes 4-5 lines or arond 320 characters. Then in May 2018, Google decreased the length again. The current best practice as of June 2018 is to keep the description under 160 characters. For more, read the best practices guide by Moz.
