Have you always wondered why Google chooses certain websites for its featured snippets over others? There is actually quite a bit of rhyme and reason to it.
As you likely know by now, there are many factors that go into determining where your website results show up in a Google (or other search engine) search.
Featured snippets are just one type of a search result that can be displayed for your business. These search results most often displayed when they specifically answer a specific question.
