---- New at Google - Longer Snippets and Search Refinements
AjiNIMC - 3:43 am on Mar 25, 2009 (gmt 0) Search for "widgets" - it has one word, so they search for the word and show a 2 line snippet.
Hmm... (I haven't gone through whole discussion), I have done some tests and here is how they are showing the longer snippets.
Search for "widget in webmasterworld", they still show 2 line snippet as they are able to get both the words in 2 lines
Now search for "widget in webmasterworld with ajinimc" , now it will show 3 lines for some sites and 2 lines for some sites depending on whether they are able to find these 3 words in the 2 lines or 3 lines.
Now keep adding words to "widgets in webmaster with ajinimc" and it will keep lengthening the descriptions to accommodate the important words in the snippet.
Anyway for us it doesn't matter as we were practicing it for many years :),
|Maybe it is time to stop listening to all the SEOs out there who say that this meta description is of little value. |
:) 99% of SEOs says what they hear from others and 1% of them who experiment and know the benefits are too busy doing it.
