Meta Description Generator does four things:

  1. It writes your meta description tag code as you type your description.
  2. It counts the character length of what you are typing to let you know how much room is left for you to continue writing.
  3. It forces you to write within the most seo-friendly meta description length of 156 characters
  4. It lets you select the entire output code with one click inside the textarea.

You can use this meta description generator freely so you can compose, type, and measure your seo-friendly description all in one go.

You do the writing while you leave the counting and the coding to the meta description generator. Writing a very compelling meta description that search engines would love to show its users must be your main focus. Leave the counting and the coding to this meta description generator we had made just for you.

The goal is to have a meta description that search engines can fully show in their search results snippets. Otherwise, the rest of your description will get cut off from your potential customer's view, leaving her not completely satisfied with what she have seen or read. This will surely leave each of your potential customers to react by looking towards your competitor's direction. Therefore, search engine optimization can definitely make a difference when done correctly in this area of your traffic driving campaign.

Let Me Give You My Personal Meta Description Length Secrets

Write a description that is 123 to 156 characters long (including spaces) to see your meta description fit well into the Google search results snippet description.

Less than 123 characters will be too short while more than 156 characters will be to long. A too short description gives Google very little information and would have to grab some more information from the body of your page.

Without stuffing your meta description with a long string of keywords, make sure that the primary keyword you are targeting for that page is in there. For best results, start your meta description with the keyword your are focusing on that page. If not possible due to grammatical constraints, try putting a word or two in front of that keyword.

When a meta description is too long, your message gets cut-off and isn't shown in full and would convey an incomplete message to your target audience. The optimal length range to optimize for Bing is 123 to 160 characters.

Meta Description Tag Importance

Optimizing your meta description doesn't directly help improve your search engine rankings. However, you should still maximize its potential to drive traffic which starts with that description being able to attract organic search traffic people to go to your site.

Do you want to know WHY you should devote time into writing good meta descriptions? It is because the meta tag that matters most is the meta description tag. You can hear it from Google's web spam lead, Matt Cutts himself, in the following video.


First, each web page's meta description has to be unique. Each meta description on your site has to be different from one another and different from other people's meta description.

According to google, it is better to have no meta description than to have duplicate meta descriptions among the different web pages on your site. Google may simply grab content from the body of your web page and use that as the snippet description in the SERPs whether you have a well written meta description or not. In short, duplicate meta description equals bad while unique or no meta description equals good. The next video below, also from the Google Webmasters Youtube channel, explains this in detail.

Second, on every webpage, make sure your meta description and your webpage salesopy describes what the page is about. That way, you'll be sure that, in the search results, people will read whatever ends up as your search result snippet description with ease and be interested to proceed to your site.

You've made it when you see a boost in traffic coming from your website's organic search referral statistics. You lose search engine traffic each time people don't find the description, i.e. in your meta description tag, compelling enough for them to clickthrough.

But, you can't just write a good long description to say everything you want to say. There is no way all of it will show up in a search engine result snippet. And, according to search engine guidelines, the meta description tag is not a place to put long strings of keywords. That is why, the only way is, you have to be observant of what search engines, like Google, offer you (156 characters of space) so that your would be customers will click upon finding you in the search engine results pages.
