SEO Tips for Meta tag Lengths in 2024

Each SEO expert or SEO tool has a different set of rules or guidelines for H1 lengths, Title Tags and Meta Descriptions.

Using this free SEO tool we have brought together the combined thinking of some of the leading SEO and online marketing authorities such as Neil Patel, AHRefs, SEMRush, and Yoast to establish meta tags that will pass the vast majority of tests and tools.

The basic rules and size guidelines we use for meta tag lengths are as follows:

H1 Tags:

  • Minimum 20 characters
  • Maximum 70 characters
  • Must not be identical to the Title tag

Title Tags

  • Minimum 50 characters
  • Maximum 58 characters
  • Maximum 580 pixels
  • Must not be identical to the H1 tag

Meta Description

  • Minimum 50 characters
  • Maximum 160 characters (ideally 158 or less)
  • Maximum 920 pixels

Of course, these should all be readable, and meaningful and ideally contain the keywords you are targeting without keyword stuffing.  Google say there is no limit on the length of the Title tag, and equally the Description or any of these can be longer or shorter than our recommendations, but you risk Google or Bing overwriting with their own versions, which may not be the correct message that you wish displayed on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP).
