When looking for an opportunity to win a Featured Snippet, should you swim upstream like a salmon, or should you just go with the flow?
Well, I’m always a fan of the second option.
I love it when I get a push from the outside.
How this relates to Featured Snippets is, when trying to win a Featured Snippet, you should always look for a snippet that Google isn’t ‘happy’ with.
In other words, look for cases where Google is looking for a better alternative and then show up with that perfect solution.
An easy way to do this is to look for a volatile Featured Snippet. One where Google is consistently changing URLs.
In this post, I’ll show you two different types of Featured Snippet volatility through the lens of the Rank Ranger SERP Features Monitor and how you can deal with it.

SEO takes on a major role in the world of digital marketing.
When we think of SEO, though, Google seems to be the first thing that comes to mind. For those of you who might have forgotten - Google isn’t the only search engine out there.
Microsoft’s Bing, for instance, is the second most used search engine in many countries worldwide. According to Statista - Bing captured 6.5% of the global search market in July 2020.
Also, according to ComScore, traffic converts better at Bing's Network and their audience spends 6.8% more money online than Google searchers.
No matter where your loyalty lies, through this blog post we’ll get deeper into the advantages that come with using Bing.
Every good digital marketer loves data.
The reason is as a marketer, every decision you make should be backed up with data. Think of data as the instruments on your aircraft. Without instruments, on a foggy day, a pilot literally doesn’t know what direction they’re flying in.
The same is true of SEO.
With that said, there are many different ways to present data. Each presentation tells a different story. Each story gives you unique insights.
This means not every tool or data set will help a marketer find the insights they are looking for. You can’t build a cabinet with just a hammer.
This brings me to the subject of APIs for SEO.
There are times when the standard toolset just isn’t enough. Many marketers turn to APIs when they need their data presented in a specific way.
In this post, I’ll be covering what an API is and how you can use one to improve your SEO. I’ll also show you how you can get started using Rank Ranger’s API.
