    Hi,

    I just want to know what should be the length of the meta description and meta title of any website, can i increase the length ? Will that be a mess in onpage parameter and ranking?

    Usually the meta description should be 156 symbols including spaces and for the meta title try to keep it around 60 symbols

    OP, there won't be any issues with making your titles and descriptions longer, but it would be a pointless exercise, as Google will just cut them off.

    Google automatically cuts meta description and title, so you need to respect the maximum characters because Google can cut irregolarry your title and you lost your optimization.
