    Snippet Preview showing too many characters

    The snippet preview shows all of the description text, even if it's above the limit of 160. Google truncates descriptions at around 155-160 characters, so the snippet preview isn't giving content editors a true look at how the search result will appear on Google.

    To give a true look, it would be helpful if the search preview cut off descriptions when they reach 160 characters and append '...' to the description as this is what Google does.

    We're using Umbraco version 8.13.0 and version 2.10.0 of SEOChecker
