    For a long time, the limit was approximately 160 characters (give or take). If you went much over that then Google would truncate your description or even just replace it with something else.
    Recently, Google extended that length to 200+ characters (depending on the search term). Google is, of course, being vague about this and when it is the case. I would still try to stick between 150-160 characters for now. At least 150 because you want to take advantage of all the space you can, and less than 160 so that you can complete your thought! :)

    The Meta description is an important SEO issue. Your meta description limit is 150-200 words. You should add your keywords in the meta description.

    Nothing "happens". That data is merely available for search engines when they index your site.

    Meta descriptions can be any length, but search engines generally truncate snippets longer than 160 characters. It is best to keep meta descriptions long enough that they're sufficiently descriptive, but shorter than that 160-character limit.
