    Description

    This rule determine page title length and its recommended length between 50 and 60 chars.

    Purpose

    When your page title is too long, search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) will shorten or rewrite it to fit within its results, often by showing ellipses at the end. Moreover, the page title length varies and depends on the device. However, if you want to reduce the chance of search engines rewriting your title, we recommend 50-60 characters. If your visitors mostly come from the mobile, you can typically use longer, but not shorter, titles than this before search engines start rewriting.

    How to fix it

    • If possible try to keep page title between 50 and 60 characters. Otherwise it will be cut.
