I was searching Hr Software on Google and i found some ads' descriptions were more than 200 char. How is that possible?Google Adwords provides only 80char description. Let me know how can we increase the length of the description of the text ads. PFA the screenshot. Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 12.57.14 pm.png

Hi @Chandralekha S,


The description text is still less than 80 characters in the 1st ad.

It is "Get a truly.....up to videos & More".


The 2nd line is Callout extension.(About callout extensions)

And the 3rd line is Structured snippet extension.(About structured snippet extensions)

Then after, there are 4 sitelinks.(About sitelink extensions)
