According to a Google spokesperson, the right-sidebar featured snippet variant of Google search results has been migrated into the main results column. This change is the part of Google’s featured snippet deduplication, which began on January 22.
Mordy Oberstein, CMO of RankRanger, spotted the update had rolled out Thursday.
As you can see from the screenshot above, it shows a right-sidebar featured snipped for the query “pulp fiction brett.” The screenshot was taken before deduplication by SEO consultant at G-Squared Interactive Glenn Gabe.
The second screen shot was taken after deduplication and shows the same snippet in the main results column.
