Sarkar made a plea to Google to allow his full SEO service descriptions to be in the meta instead of cutting off KATY PERRY AND GERALD FROM HEY ARNOLD GO BACK IN TIME TO SAVE STEVE IRWIN PBN FUCKING MURDER TRAIN VOLUME 215: CRIKEY, FOOTBALL HEAD!

when i searched google for "savvy seo courses"

quite a few of the results had about the same number of words, while some only 2 lines.
Maybe this is a new thing from google where they now change the excerpts
to different lengths, just to compare ctr.

Yep, they are always testing, I don't see any other explanations does make sense.

I noticed this in my niche a few weeks ago. Other sites were using longer meta descriptions (200+ words), seeing this make me think it's time to change my a few of my pages descriptions. :/

I've seen it since the middle of November. It looks like they are bumping it up to 350 characters.
