SERP Features are result types on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP) that are different and typically more detailed and advanced than a simple basic organic type. Common examples of SERP features are image, video, or map results. Dragon Metrics tracks more than 30 types of SERP features on Google, Bing, and Baidu.
The SERP Features report shows which rich results are found on the SERPs of tracked keywords in a campaign, and which sites are ranking in these features. You see trends of which SERP features are showing more or less often, compare SERP feature rankings to competitors, and filter to see keywords ranking for a specific result type.
