    How do long, short and duplicate meta descriptions affect SEO?

    The title says it. "How do long, short and duplicate meta descriptions affect SEO?"

    For the first time, I noticed that Google webmaster tools tell you how many of your meta descriptions are either too long, too short and duplicates of ones used on other pages.

    Please post your comments regarding these. Thanks for your advice!
    And so I got lost in code...completely asphyxiated by it...

    It doesn't. That tool is meant to help you improve your descriptions which may be used in the SERPs. That's all it really affects as the meta description does not affect your rank.
