A Featured Snippet is an instant answer to a search query found in a box above the organic results on a search engine results page (SERP).

A Featured Snippet is often referred to as “Rank 0” and is highly coveted by marketers due to its prominent location.

There are three common types of SERP Featured Snippets:

  • Paragraph answers (usually 40-60 words)
  • Numbered or bulleted lists (up to nine lines)
  • Tables (up to nine rows and three columns)

Featured Snippets contain answers pulled from a page of web content (often from the top results on the first page).
