This free SERP simulation tool from Bruce Clay will help you preview your Google search result snippet the way it appears on Google’s search engine result pages. These pages are also known as SERP or SERPs, and they are Google’s response to a specific search query. They include organic results, paid Google Ads, knowledge graphs, video results, news results and featured snippets. There are a lot of SERP features, but the main categories are organic results and paid results from advertisers who bid on specific keywords to appear higher on SERPs when the user searches for them. The placement depends on both relevancy and bidding amounts, the higher someone bids, the higher the Ad will show on result pages. The organic results that rank high, however, are the search results that are deemed most relevant and best performing by Google’s algorithm.
Search engine result pages determine how your site appears on Google. It is essential to see how your page appears and also look at other results to understand your chances of popping up and being clicked on among different competing results. A standard organic search result will include the page’s title tag, URL and meta description. Some organic search results have featured snippets, and others have the publication date and other site links shown, this depends on Google’s algorithm and are also based on similar results and user behaviour. If you have Schema implemented, your result can even appear as a rich snippet with images, more info and reviewed stars, depending on the nature of the page. You can use our free Schema generator to make sure your results have these features.
Sometimes Google features results from Google images or a video carousel for certain search queries that seem to have that type of intent behind them. Sometimes SERPs also feature a “People Also Ask” section, twitter results like top stories, shopping results and more.
Check out how your page appears on SERPs now and make sure your result has all the needful information to stand out and get clicked on. It will show you how your page’s title tag, URL and meta description appear and allow you to edit them and see how these changes will impact your search result’s appearance. You can use the SERPs simulating tool for a page that you did not publish yet by typing the data manually, or you can fetch an existing page and improve it by simply entering the URL. The tool also checks the length of your meta description and shows you if it’s appearing correctly or getting cut-off depending on the preferred length that you choose. Try it for free now!
