Google: featured snippet URLs won’t be repeated in the regular results from now on

Google’s Danny Sullivan said on Twitter that URLs that are shown in featured snippets won’t be repeated in the regular results from now on. Until now, websites that owned the featured snippet often appeared twice on the first results page. The change has rolled out globally.

Is your website listed with a featured snippet?

Is your website listed with a featured snippet on Google’s result pages? Or is your website listed with sitelinks? Can your website be found in the image results? Knowing how your website is ranked on Google will help you to improve your web pages so that you get more conversions.
