There are times when Google’s search results are wrong. Really wrong. So wrong that you start to question whether or not you should even rely on Google’s search results for information. Case in point: When you ask Google how many legs a horse has, it says that a horse has six legs.
And, if you ask Google how many legs a snake has? Apparently snakes have four legs according to Google.
These are both examples of Google’s featured snippets, results that are supposed to predict the answer and give you the answer to a question or a particular search query. Oftentimes Google’s search results are just flat out wrong. Google’s featured snippets feature is often referred to as “position zero”. Google’s algorithm picks one of the top-ranking (top 10) search results for certain search queries and features that search result (sometimes along with a photo).
Don’t rely on everything you read and hear on the internet.
