Featured snippets are driven by a specific ranking algorithm that is separate Photo Retouching from the core algorithm. That is my theory. For me, this idea contains (a lot) water. And I'm not alone. Experts such as Eric Enge, Cindy Krum and Hannah Thorpe have the same idea. To confirm or refute the theory, I asked Gary Illyes this question at the SMS Sydney Conference. Does the featured snippet work with a different algorithm than the 10 blue links? The answer absolutely bothered me. He gave me (and the other 20 in the room) an overview of what the new search engineer learned when he Photo Retouching started working at Google.
The system described in this article has been confirmed to be correct, but some of the conclusions I draw are not (in italics), and all the numbers here are entirely invented by me. Photo Retouching Remember that there is. The purpose of this article is to give you an overview of how ranking works. It is not what the individual ranking elements are, their relative weighting / importance, or the internal mechanics of the multi-candidate bidding system. They remain top secret (I 100% understand why that is the case). advertisement Continue reading below Ranking mechanism in Google search What are the ranking factors? There are hundreds / thousands of ranking elements. Google doesn't tell us what they are in detail (it seems reasonable to me). Shows grouping by topicality, quality, PageSpeed, RankBrain, entities, structured data, freshness, etc. There are a few things to point out here. These seven are real, reliable ranking factors (in no particular order). Each ranking element contains Photo Retouching multiple signals.
For example, the quality is mostly PageRank, but it also contains other signals, and the structured data includes not only , but also tables, lists, semantic HTML5, and so on. Google calculates the page score for each ranking factor. Examples of Google ranking factors Something like Photo Retouching this Keep in mind that all of these numbers are completely fictitious throughout this article . advertisement Continue reading below How ranking factors contribute to bidding Google takes individual ranking factor scores and combines them to calculate the total score ( the term "bid" is used, which makes a lot of sense to me).
