When does Google show featured snippets?

Google displays a featured snippet in search when they believe this format will help people more easily discover what they’re seeking for. It’s basically an evolution taking place inside the search results focussed on improving overall user experience.

The relation between featured snippets Mobile and Voice search

According to Google, the featured snippet format is especially helpful for those on mobile or searching by voice. Since the incredible growth of both mobile and voice search (Mobile search traffic has surpassed desktop traffic worldwide), more people are doing voice queries every day.

Therefore Google will show the the traditional 10 links format less and less, and rich results like featured snippets are Google’s answer to improve search experience.

How popular are featured snippets?

Based on an Ahrefs study approximately 13% of US search queries display featured snippets.

Because there’s a high level of language understanding and interpretation involved on Google’s part to extract and generate these direct answers, you can see big differences between languages, when it comes how often and when featured snippets are triggered.

How to optimize for featured snippets?

  • Do your keyword research to find out what questions Google suggests based on your subject.
    • Use this Featured Snippet Tool to generate featured snippet ideas.
    • Perform a manual query’s to see what type of featured snippets you can find.
    • Use the “People also ask” box to dig trough the other question Google returns related to your keyword.
    • Research your Google Search Console keyword list to see how your site performs for question related keywords.
  • Create quality content that is focussed on answering questions relevant to a specific subject.
  • Make sure you rank in the top 10 for the query which triggers the featured snippet.
  • Add images to your content that specifically match the keyword which triggers the featured snippet.
  • Use proper HTML formatting:
    • Wrap your question inside a H2 or H3 heading tag.
    • Make sure the answer is presented in a paragraph tag (<p>), list item (<ul> / <ol>), or table (<table>) HTML format.
  • Make sure the length of the answer approximately contains 45 and 60 words.
