List Pages To Appear With Snippets In Search Results

In another improvement to snippets, Google is rolling out list snippets over the next few days. Typically snippets contain a couple lines of text under the search results to give users an idea how relevant a page is in regards to their query. List snippets will differ by reflecting “the structure of the page, rather than just showing two lines of text.”

For example, if a result’s page consists mostly of a structured list, Google will show “a list of three relevant rows or items underneath the result in a bulleted format.” Google also plans to include an approximate count of the total items listed on the page.

    Good for Google and I might say about time. I’m hoping will continue to see this type of improvement over google search results. It’s good for the consumer and will speed up the searching process for all of us.
