The amount of characters I use varies depending on the keywords. I always try to include the company name, the keywor(s) and a call to action, or something like, "Same Day Shipping!"

I agree, short and sweet is the way to go. Don't make people read more than they need to.

Short and to the point. Google AdWords ad copies go to Overture and FindWhat too. No problems with CTR so far.

It all depends on the product or service you are selling. For some ads prices work best, for others you may want a phone number in there, etc.

I haven't detected a pattern - in fact the above is a "feature" if you use GoToast - I consider it a nuisance. Short isn't always convenient when you need big words to describe a technical feature.

Often (depending on other info Y shows in the search request), a longer description will make it so a user has to scroll down the page to see the 2nd-4th ad. In these situations, we often see a higher change for CTRs between the first 1-2 and 3-4 positions than if everyone has a short description and they are all displayed as soon as someone does a search result.

Difficult to specify any particular text length and analyze impact on CTR.
I believe its more to do with
1.the business area 2.the customer segment 3.the keyword in question and MAYBE the PPC SE
