CMS Update: Google's SEO Meta Description Increase

When a user searches for products or services on Google, they are often shown a meta description of your site, commonly called a snippet. Google recently increased how much of a snippet is displayed to searching users from 130 characters to around 300 characters.

The LVSYS CMS has been updated to reflect this change. Now, when entering a meta description for your site, the CMS will alert you when you have reached the newer, longer character limit of 300 characters.

    A Google search for 'LVSYS', highlighting the snippet.

Ultimately, snippets are meant to provide the most helpful information possible about your site and encourage users to click through and learn more. Whether your meta description is relatively short or long, what matters most is that you provide real value in your meta description.

Tips and Trends: SEO for Ecommerce

Potential customers are reading your ecommerce site's snippets when they search for products. Are your meta descriptions encouraging clicks?

Our client Rugged Maps sells durable, tear resistant, high quality detailed maps that last a lifetime. Their products are well optimized for search engine users.

    See how the snippet changes when Google shows a result for the Rugged Maps site vs. a product page for Arizona maps on the Rugged Maps site.

LVSYS Web + Software can help you ensure your product page snippets are providing value to potential customers. Call now (1-503-468-4890) or send an email (sales@lvsys.com) to talk to a sales representative!
