    Hi Matt,

    Learnt something new about “Featured Snippets”. Have always wondered how Google decides that. And, felt well, they would use Wikipedia or something.

      They do use Wikipedia for some stuff, but not always!

      Both On-Page Optimization and link building are equally important. I have seen a lot of Blogs with excellent content but still fail to rank because they have no backlinks.
