The meta description tags and title tags have the limitation of total number of characters and Google is now a days , decreasing the length of characters in these tags.
Title tag-156 characters in meta description tag
70- title tag
Google is decreasing it .

Google:

Bing:

Here's a tool I use to preview titles - http://moz.com/blog/new-title-tag-guidelines-preview-tool (http://moz.com/blog/new-title-tag-guidelines-preview-tool). It also shows how your title looks like after certain search queries, because search engines bold the keywords, therefore the width increases.

Hi Heris Charles,

There are no limitations for title and description tags, but its recommended that your title should be 60 to 70 characters and description should be 160 characters because Google shows title and description in search results as recommended above. :) :) :)

There are some guidelines by Google on Title tag and meta tags optimization. If you follow those guidelines, the chances of higher rankings in SERPs are more. Google does not count the title length in characters. but in pixels. Currently the limit of title tag has been set to 600 pixels which accommodate 60 characters approximately. So the ideal length of your title tag should be around 60 characters. And that of Meta Description should be 160 characters approximately.

The length of title should be 65 characters for Google and description should be limited up to 160 characters. As after the text goes 160 characters, it’s truncated & SERPs visitors could not see the text after it.

Google typically displays the first 50–60 characters of a title tag.
Meta Description can be any length, but search engines generally truncate snippets longer than 160 characters. It is best to keep Meta Tags long enough that they're sufficiently descriptive but shorter than that 160-character limit.

There are no hard and fast rules regarding the length of title and meta description tags. However, the recommended length of title is somewhere between 65 to 70 characters including spaces, because more than this likely to be truncated in the search results. So try to keep the title length to 65 characters including spaces for best possible rendering. You can go up to 70 characters in total, but try not to exceed this.
