Bing has added a new sort of featured snippet to their search effects, and placement proprietors possibly received are very glad about this one. Bing will show a common sized featured snippet, however rather than requiring a click through to the real publisher’s website for extra details or facts, Bing is presenting a new “see complete answer” expandable featured snippet, which shows even extra of the content material from the website the featured snippet is taken from.
This is considerably longer than a normally featured snippet we see from Bing or Google. This precise one is 131 phrases.
One of the drawbacks of having a featured snippet is that there’s the potential that the searcher will find the answer in the featured snippet and now not want to click thru. And for greater complicated answers that supply the simple answer in the featured snippet, however, calls for a click through for more information or the full instructions, having an expandable featured snippet negates the opportunity that a person could click through to the web page, whilst they could get all of it within the seek consequences instead.
It will be exciting to look comments to this fashion of featured snippet… I suspect while it might be helpful for searchers, publishers – who are seeing their content used without spending a dime – won’t be so glad about it.
