TITLE - A page title helps your SEO it should be around 60-70 characters. Your page title should be long enough to entice the reader, but short enough to make the meaning and purpose of the page clear to both users and search engines.

DESCRIPTION - Meta descriptions can technically be any length, but Google generally truncates snippets to 155-160 characters. It's best to keep meta descriptions long enough that they're sufficiently descriptive, so we recommend descriptions between 50 and 160 characters.
