Featured Snippet

Categories: F, SEO Glossary

A Featured Snippet is a prominent element in search engine results pages (SERPs) that provides a concise response to user queries directly on the results page. This snippet is typically displayed above the traditional organic search results and offers a quick summary or answer to the searcher’s question, often extracted from a webpage that Google deems to be the most relevant to the query. Featured Snippets are designed to give users an immediate solution or explanation, which can be particularly useful for straightforward questions or informational needs.
