Search Engine Land: Another study shows how featured snippets steal significant traffic from the top organic result. “A new study released today by Ahrefs shows how featured snippets have a negative impact on clicks to the first organic search result. Ahrefs analyzed two million featured snippets and found that the first organic result shows a significant drop in click-through rate when a featured snippet is present. Without a featured snippet, the first result gets a 26 percent click-through rate. With it, it only gets a 19.6 percent click-through rate, and the featured snippet gets an 8.6 percent click-through rate.” Yikes. Worth a read.
