  • Edwin Jonk: I get the large descriptions too.
  • Tim Capper: Anyone have any ideas ?
  • Tim Capper: I just Googled it >> and even on the results page there are sites with larger snippets >> the support page for Google even has 4 lines.

    Hmm
  • Michelle Dear: Yeah. We talked about it, and I recall we mentioned noticing the four lines over the 3 lines, but I think (and don't quote me on this) that we could not find a reason behind this at the time of the HOA.
  • Pawan Chaudhari: Yes, Google can't answer...This..
  • Dave Elliott: read this the other day from dr pete.  ;
  • Michelle Dear: Thanks + ;. So I guess the bottom line is this: Google's rich snippet algorithm has method to it's madness, but is capricious regardless. Bulleted lists (which may or many not be used to populate the knowledge graph) may or may not populate your rich snippet. Your meta description may nor may not be used. Be grateful you aren't IMDB or any other uber high-authority site. Keep your meta description within the specified parameters, say a prayer, and spin three times counter-clockwise and cross your fingers.
  • Dave Elliott: I think it is basically. Make well formed meta descriptions of under 155char/ 928px wide as most appear in this way. However, google will as always continue to do whatever the hell it wants.......you forgot throwing salt over your left shoulder.
  • Michelle Dear: You're right, I did, + ;. I usually say, "get your salt."  ;At least I abstained from telling people to sacrifice a chicken, as we used to say when I worked at Tivoli/IBM. I try to have a hard line. Try.
