    When submitting to directories how many words/characters should you use? I have only been using about 25 words and now think this may be way to short?

    Sorry I mean in the description

    For SEO purposes I don't think it matters. Directory links are not worth much to the SEs, especially Google. For conversion purposes hoping a real human gets to that page and is looking for something to click... just as many words as it takes to convince them and not one word more. Basic copywritting. There is no hard and fast rule.

    25 characters for description is too small, it cannot describe your services. Increase it and you can go 200-250 (mostly all directories accept 250 characters description, with spaces)

    Check the allowed characters that you can use, most directories place the maximum characters allowed. Then maximize it by describing your website as briefly and as complete as possible - focus on telling them what is your website all about and what are your services.

    I think you should use only amount that will properly and clearly describe your site. If you can do that with 25 words (but I doubt) then go for it.
