Providing more comprehensive and actionable results to nuanced questions in the Search results Google started rolling “multifaceted featured snippets” on Wednesday.
Multifaceted featured snippets may appear for queries where a user could be searching for either causes or remedies. Queries, such as “ears popping on a plane,” or “heat from the center of the earth,” may trigger for example.
“Sometimes the words we use to ask a question are broad and there could be several different interpretations of the question. With multifaceted featured snippets, we’re able to better understand your query and recognize when there could be multiple interpretations of that query,” Google wrote.
An example screen shot shown below for the ambiguous query “garden needs full sun?” and offer featured snippets for one of the two different answers that could be interpreted as “what garden plants need full sun?” or “what counts as full sun?”.
Since, there’re several types of nuanced queries, Google is starting with first introducing multifaceted featured snippets with “multi-intent” queries, where the intent behind the queries could have more comprehensive results.
Also, Google will eventually expand multifaceted featured snippets to cover a broader set of nuanced queries over this year.
Receently, Google also has removed the “View Image” button from its Image Search results that allow anyone to quickly download the original image file while bypassing the host webpage. This is a step Google is taking to help protect photographers’ copyrights.
However, there is a new Chrome extension that adds “View Image” button to Google Image Search results again.
