Why are featured snippets so important?

Featured snippets are content boxes containing short answers to certain queries, which are displayed by Google at the top of the search engine results page.

The Google search engine results page interface has been changing over the last couple of years, and the way users navigate through the results has changed as well. Studies have shown that more than 50% of Google searches now end without a click, and this number is expected to increase. To combat these challenges, brands need to adapt with new strategies. This is where featured snippets come in.

If you manage to gain a presence in the featured snippets, this will increase your brand awareness and help you to build trust with searchers. After all, if searchers remember you as being knowledgeable and trustworthy, they will be much more likely to consider your brand when they are ready to make a purchase.

How it works

The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to share and clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the service and is the foundation for all our quality checks.

One of our SEO Specialists will use various tools and methods to find the queries that trigger featured snippet results, what type of featured snippet is being displayed and who it belongs to. We will identify which featured snippets you own already, and which featured snippets are owned by your competitors or other websites. Finally, we will create an insightful summary to explain the findings and highlight featured snippet opportunities and recommendations.

This service has three options:

  • Featured snippet landscape audit – per website (up to 100 queries): The audit includes an overall featured snippet landscape analysis, defining what queries trigger them, what type of featured snippet is being displayed, plus insights into all the featured snippets held by you. This analysis defines the opportunities for you to get featured snippets.
  • Featured snippet competitor audit – per competitor: We will perform an analysis to detect all featured snippets held by your main competitors.
  • Gaining featured snippet recommendations – per search query: Now that we have identified your opportunities, we will provide the tactics and guidelines on how to get the featured snippet.
