Featured snippets are concise, summarized answers to search queries that appear at the top of search results, above organic listings. They are designed to provide users with quick answers and information without having to click through to a website. Featured snippets typically extract content from webpages that best match the user’s query and display it prominently in a box format, along with the page title and URL. There are several types of featured snippets, including paragraphs, lists, tables, and videos, depending on the nature of the query and the available content. Obtaining a featured snippet can significantly increase a webpage’s visibility and click-through rates in search results.
