Last updated Thursday, January 5, 2023 03:05 ET , Source: NewsService

Google has updated the article structured data help documentation by removing the 110-character limit from the headline properties. It now says, "Consider using a concise title, as long titles may be truncated on some devices."

Previously, as you can see in the Wayback Machine archive it said for the headline property on the article structure data, "The title of the article. The value should not exceed 110 characters."

Now it reads, "The title of the article. Consider using a concise title, as long titles may be truncated on some devices."
