Featured Snippets are blocks in the Google search results which answer a question asked by the user. According to a recent Stone Temple Consulting study, 30% of Google’s search results have Featured Snippets.

Eric Enge says, “Google’s use of these types of features has now passed the 50 percent mark in our query set. That’s a clear indicator of how important these are to Google. Users think that it’s very important, too. In our survey of approximately 1000 users, over 60 percent said they wanted “More results that answer my question directly without my having to visit a website or another app”. Google has obviously gotten a very good response to these programs, and they are expanding them in response”.
