Google changed how it shows the previews of the things we search. The previews only contain roughly 160 characters. Some previews, however, break this rule and display almost double that. Wikipedia seems to be one of the exceptions and gets over 300 characters in its previews. These previews are called meta descriptions. If meta descriptions are not available for a site google will load a preview for it. If your meta descriptions is to long it will be shortened with an ellipsis.
