The length of meta description

Why are some of the meta description so short (less than 155 Characters) and some are too long (More than 155 Characters)? I want to write more for my meta description. Help me please I am dying lol 😀

  • Tom Gooden: It`s really going to depend on the page. When writing a meta description you want to use whatever content you feel will get you the most click throughs. Test and tweak.
  • David Kutcher: Bigger doesn`t always mean better.
  • Edvinas Pozniakas: Description is 320 characters long now
  • Dave Elliott: i just try and describe the page or product features as efficiently as possible, generally keeping under 200 chars but now am less bothered if i go over.
  • MQ Khilji: My problem is; I want to keep my meta description 200 characters. Yoast is not allowing me to do.
