I ask myself wether it makes any sense to use a bit longer title tags of about 75 - 80 characters. The last one or two words may not be shown usually in the "serps", o.k.
But they could count for ranking purposes and may be shown sometimes in the serps, dependant on the words of the search.
This question came up for me, because I realized that on one certain page of my site the last word (beginning at 70 characters) is not shown in the serps, even when searching with this word. It's only shown in the description. I tried a lot of different searches with this last word. Never shown.
The user is "all" for Google, so this is a clear signal that Google tends to ignore this word and probably also won't count it for ranking purposes.
Anyone with the same or opposite exoeriences?
