With increased concern for mobile device viewing, in addition to the amount of detail Google devotes to the efficient use of space the “above the fold” affect what you see on a fresh SERP before moving the screen I suspected Google wasn’t increasing font sizes without decreasing something else. I tested various keywords and phrases, knowing that the top results would likely include sites that had been well-optimized. Despite the anticipation, I couldn’t help feeling surprised at what I saw – an uptick in the number of search results in which website title and description text was cut-off. Prior to Google’s SERP format change, meta title tags recognized up to approximately 70 characters including spaces while meta descriptions recognized up to 150 characters with spaces.
