Google Featured/Rich Snippets are search results with an emphasized layout format that provides users concise and direct answers to their questions.
Featured snippets appear above the number one result position on the search result page, also known as the “Zero Position”, thus gaining a privileged spot among all searches.
In fact, “what’s different with a featured snippet is that it is enhanced to draw user attention on the results page”, says Google.
This type of search result includes a precise answer, the source link, page title, and URL.
