    Currently, there’s no hard limit to the meta title and description in the page settings. The optimal description length is between 155 and 300 characters. It will cut off in mobile, and you need to take that into consideration when writing your meta description.


    If you believe a second field for mobile meta description is necessary, please create a new Wishlist item for that specific feature request.
