Hi Googler,

 

Anyone knows what's this snippet? Why it shows up even though this website rank only at 4th position in organic search?

 

People usually says Google is testing sth new but if there is more details than that, I would be highly interested to know Smiley Happy

Hi @Jason Zhang;

Yes;

Google has been testing snippets / extracts   from reputable, or  highly accredited  sources, during  the last 6 months or so, and show them at the top.

The query must be very specific, though. What was the query? Per the Policy, Google ads on the SERP must be clearly marked  as ads.

What was your  search query?

Hi @MosheTLV

 

My search query is "teach abroad". I don't think it's even close to specific... It's neither a question or a niche terms, which get me thinking.

 

Thanks for the explanation tho Smiley Happy
