URL Character Limit in AV.com?

Hello all

Can anyone tell me if AV has a character limit for for submitted URLs?

Unfortunately, I am working with a long domain and some fairly detailed 2-3 word keyphrases. The pages which relate to these phrases are indexed, but they are not being returned in a search which uses them. In fact they are not figuring in the top 100 results for some quite specialised and (I would guess) non-competitive phrases.

The index page for the site is listed and when I click the 'more pages from this site' link I can see the keyphrase pages. However, it does seem that, at least visually on the screen, the keyphrase part of the URL is truncated.

I don't think its as simple as the pages not ranking well for AV's algo.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

127 has been my working theory...although anything over 64 appears to get buried real deep.

Thanks for you help Brett.

My URL's are about 57 characters (inc. [www...] and dashes etc) but still seem to be buried again the keyword search - even though the keywords are very 'niche'.

Guess it's a case of 'tweak and re-submit'.

Thanks again
