In certain situations, Google may algorithmically prevent websites from ranking in Featured Snippets in their search results.
Did you know?
Interesting. I'd like to learn more about how Featured Snippets on Google work.
This can happen when content falls into the following categories:
• Sexually explicity • Hateful • Violent • Dangerous and harmful • Contradicting consensus on public interest topics
It could mean that this is highest you'll ever rank organically in search results, when a Featured Snippet is a SERP feature.
Thankfully, there are SEO tools we can use to confirm whether Featured Snippets are being impacted.
But there's edge cases to keep in mind when doing your analysis. Like Google Featured Snippets not ranking in the top position.
