    From the site I just read the title character count would be a nice option or feature. Seems anything over 70 characters is shown as a .... with Google SERPs

    Would this be helpful to anyone else? Sometimes I try to max out my title I mean I can count them or go back and forth, but if character count was there we could be sure we don't go over 70. Just in the title box.

    Maybe its here and I don't see it?

    Any thoughts on this feature added to title box

    70 characters is a lot. I don't see where many would actually go over it.

    That was 74 characters...

    I see where it could happen, but it's not that common I don't think for there to be a need for a limit to be coded and placed. I just counted and one of my hubs with a long title still only had 68 characters. I'm sure there has to be a small handful of mine that may be close to 70 if not over, but not many.

    I get what you mean, I have some long titles on many hubs. Mostly because the new title feature keeps suggesting that I add more keywords. Sometimes it feels like the titles are kind of odd sounding with the extra words. But, knowing the count would help during the initial set-up.

    K9keystroke, just rearrange and completely re-work your titles so that they make since and that they still use the suggested keywords. Don't just add words to add them.

    Ok well I thought there might be some title tuner experts out there. Some still like the 5-7 word titles my self the closer to seventy characters titles seem to be ranking pretty good. Also title tuner does try to push me over 70 which may loOse a keyword in the title on the search page . Replaced with (.........) ok thanks for your opinions about adding the counter. I will just type them into twitter first to do character count wow lol
