More Featured Snippet Changes Coming Soon
There has been a ton of craziness happening with featured snippets 📰 that could be affecting your search visibility and organic traffic. 📉
📋 To recap what has happened:
🚨 January 22nd: Google shocked SEOs and marketers with their “de-duplication update” for featured snippets 📰. Google thinks of featured snippets as position 1️⃣ in search results and removed results with the same URL as the snippet from the first page.
They claim that duplicated URLs being pushed to the top of page two was a bug 🐛 (this was fixed and won’t happen anymore!). They also claim that the de-duplication of right column featured snippets was also a bug. Right side de-duplication ✅ should now be stopped or reverted.
📢 February 28th: Google plans to move all “true” featured snippets in the right column to the main column (these will also be de-duplicated).
That’s all for now! We’ll keep you updated with the latest news on featured snippets and any further changes from Google.
