[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] SEO Title too long? (3 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.7

    I did this:

    I filled out the SEO Title with 4 characters left:
    "How To Restore A WordPress Site - The WordPress Security Checklist"
    Screenshot: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2675456/seotitle%201.png

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    I expected the full title to show up in the Google Search Results.

    Instead it did this:
    I got this:
    "How To Restore A WordPress Site - The WordPress Security Chec..."

    Is the Title in Google shorter than what the SEO plugin thinks?

    Thanks ;-)

    Same problem here.

    I've read somewhere that Google has started experimenting measuring the title lengths by pixels and not characters... so that's probably the reason...
