A Featured Snippet

Rich snippets are organic search results displayed by search engines, but with one key difference – they have far more visual appeal and are a whole more likely to be clicked.

A featured snippet (an Answer Box)​ will be displayed proudly at the top of the SERP with the answer to the searcher’s question. The answer comes from an organic listing, but only a summary of the content is displayed. However, Google is kind enough to link the answer to the site from where the content originates.
