Google’s Danny Sullivan has confirmed that webpages in a featured snippet position will no longer be repeated in regular Page 1 organic listings.
This is a brand new change rolling out as of today.
The change will affect 100% of all search listings worldwide.
Previously, it was not uncommon to see to see webpages in a featured snippet position appear twice on Page 1 of search results.
Going forward, that will no longer be the case.
Now, a webpage only gets one opportunity to appear on Page 1.
As Sullivan states, featured snippets count as one of the 10 webpage listings shown on the first page of search results.
