WooHoo! Post is now Featured Snippet on Google

Last Update: December 21, 2019

My post that went straight to rank number 1 on Google, Bing and Yahoo a few days ago is now the featured post on Google for that keyword. I was concerned the post had dropped way down in rank when I saw it was at 26. I forgot that rank 0 as the featured snippet is known is not recognized on many tracking sites. It showed 26 because my post is at 0 and also at 26.

0 is better than 1. 0 is the post at the very top of the page ABOVE the paid advertising positions.

This is a great boost to my low moral of the last few months as my post ranks sank. I was not putting time into my site. As soon as I pick back up again, the ranks raise too.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all!

Jessica

Outstanding! I saw the effect when I got this too. Very important for the traffic!
Congratulations!

And a merry Christmas and a happy new year! I will be complete, as always, in rest from work in the first three days of Christmas (24-26) and then in many of the last 10 days of Christmas too.

https://youtu.be/n9kfdEyV3RQ a song for you.

Do not worry about ranking, just look after no 1, "You" as you will catch up again.

Sorry about the spelling mistake I put in the photo.

Merry Christmas

Thanks Tom. Cute turkey. I love the #1's and #0's on Google and Bing. It means I am doing something right and traffic and sales follow.

I am not making my websites my first or even second or third priority right now though. Too busy!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

-50c there yet? Almost +50c here.

Global warming goes in both directions.

No, it never gets that cold here by the coast and only very rarely in the interior. Our winters are shorter and warmer now. Warming is happening here faster than many areas. It was +50 F here a few weeks ago and raining! Now it has finally cooled down to normal.

I can't imagine your heat! It was 90 F here this summer and it was horrible. We had smoke from fires along with the heat too.
