    Thought i'd share this piece of news since it's relevant to any SEO.

    I'll summarise a few key points:

    1. Title length increased to 70 characters
    2. Meta data description increased by about 16-20 characters per line.

    I did a quick site: search for my sites and noticed the descriptions are indeed longer. Probably one more thing for us to optimize now eh?

    Since i can't yet post url links, just do a search for "google increases width of main search results column".

    Google has increased the column for organic search results to about 600 pixels from 500 pixels. The amount of whitespace between the results and features in the right sidebar has decreased by 5 pixels, from 65 pixels.
