Advanced SEO: Add indication for long meta descriptions - wp-calypso
Currently, when you enter a long meta description for a post (longer than 160 characters), the character count turns red like a warning:
Users that aren't familiar with SEO best practices might not know what that means or why they're being limited. We could add a notice about this either:
A) In the info popover like this:
B) As an info popover when the character count is over 160 similar to how we treat long Publicize messages:

This is a pretty easy fix, and I think it would be really helpful for users that aren't that familiar with SEO.
I'd like to both bump this issue, and revise it.
We emphasize 160 characters here, when a) exceeding the character limit doesn't hurt the page's SEO and b) Google has had the search result excerpt set to 300 characters since December.
My Request: Increase the character limit to 300 characters.
I chatted with @chrisfromthelc about this a bit in Slack. Google technically can display up to 320 characters, but on average, it still displays about 160 characters (seems like a lot of factors at play - article). Still the current red warning experience with no additional info is sub-optimal. We could do the following:
- Normal/gray color from 0-160
- Yellow warning color with info bubble from 161-320
- Red warning color with different info bubble from 321+
This issue is stale because it has been 180 days with no activity. You can keep the issue open by adding a comment. If you do, please provide additional context and explain why you’d like it to remain open. You can also close the issue yourself — if you do, please add a brief explanation and apply one of relevant issue close labels.
I am closing this as the Calypso editor does not exist anymore. An equivalent Gutenberg editor request is here - https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso/issues/44777
