When it comes to Google search results most viewers want quick answers so may choose the website that appears on the first page. Everyone who has a website will know that it takes work to get onto that first page, especially number one! However, there are still other ways to gain more visibility on search, if there is heavy competition for a keyword.

Featured Snippets

A featured snippet is the section near the top of page one, that tends to be formatted different to suit the search query. This means that the user’s questions get answered as quickly as possible, without them having to open a website.

But there are many types of these snippets, some answer a query where others answer math questions, dates and more. When answering a question Google may return a list, or below there is the FAQ box showing related questions.

In some cases, you even have a shopping snippet, perfect for businesses that sell products, and will show different shops where you can buy that item from.
