Table Snippets in Google Search

Google has improved the snippets for the pages that include big tables. They're just like the snippets for lists, but columns are clearly separated and snippets also include the table header.

Barry Schwartz says that "Google is trying to figure out the make up of the old fashion HTML tables to show the snippet in a table format". Google also finds the most relevant columns from the table and usually displays the first two rows.

{ Thanks, Herin. }


  1. Where I work I found tabular data formated with Divs and inline css... Some people took the "no more tables" matra too far :)

  2. Hi
    I am interested, can you tell the details about the job?

  3. Sounds like they're trying to copy some features of DuckDuckGo.
