i know the shorter the better but whats the most the url should be? 100 characters?
Depends. If you're talking about domain length, then I doubt it matters. If you're talking about the green URL that appears in the SERP's, then just make sure you're using semantic HTML. For sites with a clear information hierarchy, Google may show breadcrumb links in the search results.
In my opinion url length doesn't matter in Google algorithms, but if you will ever face with manual review and your domain will have 10+ words in it, this might be considered as bad practice and you might get some kind of penalty (especially, if website would ave low quality content with a lot of affiliate links)
Also depends on what kind of service you're providing. If it will be something your viewers might want to visit more than once, I personally would find it very annoying to have to type in/remember a 10 word URL, and would probably avoid the site all together. But that's just me. Just a little something to think about.
