I can see the increase continuing for a while - possibly in different formats in the future. Thanks for putting this together for us David.
That's awesome, thanks Nadya!
Featured snippets are on the increase. They rose from 2.6% in December 2015 to 11% by March 2018.
They're a great way to bypass the competition and reach the top spot in Google. And when you break it down, there are a few methods you can follow to put you in pole position.
Really helpful stuff here- I've shared this with the rest of my marketing team thanks!
Cheers Jason - the more the merrier!
Another couple solid articles on making the featured snippet:
Just make sure it's implemented right - on _a lot_ of WordPress sites that we come across pagination isn't correctly implemented.
- Self-referencing canonical URL
- Don’t break the sequence
- Avoid referencing redirects
- Use absolute URLs
- Don’t noindex paginated pages
- Don’t nofollow links to paginated pages
- Don’t include paginated pages in the XML sitemap
We explain ^ and more in https://growthhackers.com/articles/how-to-tame-paginated-content-for-the-best-seo-results-using-the-pagination-attributes - hope you'll find that useful.
Yeah, sadly most people just write "me too" posts. I see it here on Growth Hackers - people submit mediocre content with no unique angle all the time. The same applies to to the guest post pitches I get. They are all formulaic.
When it's just content that rewords what has been written before you better link to the original instead of repeating it.
Apparently you haven't done any usability testing on your own cluttered site with often tiny grey text on grey background. Please start practicing what you preach.
Thank you and you're welcome!
