The featured snippets feature was first introduced in 2014 by Google and still, there are people who wonder what I mean when I say the word ‘Featured Snippet‘ or ‘Position Zero’.
So first let me explain what it is.
What are Featured Snippets?
Featured snippets are special boxes of quick answers to your search queries where you can read the brief summary from a website that ranks on the first page of Google. You can also find website page details from where the excerpt is pulled along with the last crawled date.
What is a Featured Snippet SEO?
Featured snippet SEO is a process where an SEO expert optimizes a particular page for a particular keyword in order to appear in Google Special boxes.
Featured snippet is a practice to provide the best information for the given keyword in a web page for your visitors to search engines.
Once you have implemented the recommended changes, then you have to request a Google index. And if everything is great the featured snippet content will be automatically pulled from the respective page for the respective keyword.
I do not guarantee you the featured snippet but I can do my best to help you be there by putting quality SEO effort on your website pages.
