    I have seen somewhere that URL can be upto 255 characters. Yours is long but still less than that. I think some directory owners set validations on URL input but if they except deep links they should allow for 255 chars

    I don't know if there is an "official" length, I've seen URL's 400 or 500 characters in length. But, the domain name does have limitations, depending on the TLD, I think .coms are 64 maximum characters.

    I think as far as submitting to directories is concerned, it depends more on the script that the directory is using, or what limitations the directory owner has set.
