It looks like Google is showing more vertical search features in the core web search results - more often. Yesterday I covered at Search Engine Land that the image search box is showing up way more often in Google's web results than previously. But also it looks like featured snippets and maybe even video boxes are showing up more often this past month.

Image search box

Here are reports from SEO Clarity, RankRanger and Moz showing an increase across the board for how often image boxes show up in the search results:

Also we are seeing an increase in featured snippets showing up on the top of the search results as well. We have data here from Mozcast, RankRanger and also STAT - which was acquired by Moz:

Videos?

RankRanger is showing a 32% increase in desktop video carousels being shown on the Google web search results. Moz is not showing such a big increase:

If one thing is always true - Google is always changing.
