Google Search Generative Experience Testing Links In AI-Generated Answers

SEO Content Writing Service

It looks like all the negative feedback around the lack of links within the AI-generated answers that Google’s Search Generative Experience generates has made a difference. Google is testing links directly in those answers in the SGE results.

Brendan OConnell also sent me this nice graphic summarizing the changes:

The issue of not linking to the specific product or company mentioned in the AI-generated answer still exists as Lily Ray pointed out:

Just curious, as I’ve seen you raise this point before. In ordinary web page snippets, there aren’t links to sites or products mentioned in snippets either. Why would you want SGE to do that? Would you want the same in web page snippets, too? Would you want a resource in SGE to…
