What Is the Ideal YouTube Title Length?

The ideal title tag length for YouTube titles is 600 pixels (about 60 characters) on desktop. The same length title will be shown o mobile devices albeit over 3 lines of text. This is because Google optimizes its search results to show YouTube video titles uniformly for standardized screen sizes. A 600-pixel width covers a wide range of devices, including older computers and mobile devices.

Why Is Title Length Important for SEO?

YouTube aims to provide a consistent user experience by giving all titles in its search results the same maximum width of 600 pixels. For desktop users, the video title shows up on 1-2 lines and on mobile, it shows up on 3 lines. It guarantees that content creators keep their videos concise without too much keyword-stuffing. It also ensures that titles don’t take up too much screen space regardless of which device a user is using.
