Featured snippets in search

Featured snippets are special boxes where the format of regular listings is reversed, showing the descriptive snippet first. Read more about how Google's Featured Snippets work.

How can I opt out of featured snippets?

You can opt out of featured snippets by preventing snippets on your page using the <meta name="googlebot" content="nosnippet"> tag on your page. This will remove all snippets on your page, including those in regular search results.

How can I mark my page as a featured snippet?

You can't. Google systems determine whether a page would make a good featured snippet for a user's search request, and if so, elevates it.
