Dr. Pete, Pete Meyers, from Moz, posted on Twitter “Any algo substitute that impacts question interpretation or relevance will impact Featured Snippets.” This became once retweeted by Google’s John Mueller, so I pronounce that is a vote of self assurance without passing DA ;-). In all seriousness, now we obtain all viewed it, featured snippets are very finicky and substitute a lot but algorithm updates can cause them as effectively.
Right here is the tweet:
Google has said a mode of occasions that staunch algorithm updates without delay impact featured snippets, in conjunction with a freshness algorithm in February and even BERT – on yarn of Google understands these longer phrases greater. But in addition, we all know that the featured snippets algorithm is heavily utilizing machine studying above and previous appropriate BERT. And Google has told us these featured snippets substitute usually on yarn of of it.
That being said, most on the total, a featured snippet will doubtless be came upon within the tip ten results on Google – on the total top three. But not consistently.
I really obtain viewed random examples over time, obtain you?
