The people at RankRanger, an SEO toolset, have added a new feature that they follow in Google. In particular, they follow the changes in search results that Google displays that contain frequently asked questions and / or markers (or display the rich results as such). I love these tools that view and follow these functions, so I'm glad they added it to the feature set.
Of course, if you look at the results by going to the tool and only filtering for "FAQ / How-to-excerpts", you'll see about 5.5% of the page where Google search results contain these rich results. That seems high to me, but who knows. It will be interesting to watch.
Here is a screenshot:
Here are Glenn Gabe's thoughts about this new feature:
Even in the how-to-niche you often see no more than two how-to fragments in the top 10. You can also land more than one per SERP from one site (in the top 10). There are two sizes and both can attract your attention. Smart to implement. 🙂 https://t.co/VhMMldcGQp
