Character Counter

When you build web pages you should limit the title to 59 characters or less to be compatible with all search engines. For meta tags, your description should be 120 characters or less, and your keywords should be 762 characters or less. This handy counter will keep your all important title and metatags compatible with all the major search engines. It counts spaces as characters also, because the search engines do.


  • Type or paste your text into the text area.
  • Hit the Count 'em! button.
  • When you've reached nirvana, just copy the text to use it.

Psst, he whispered...

...if you don't know how to format your meta tags, try my MetaTag Generator or look at MetaTag Master for a more complete solution.
