  1. 40% more clicks on featured snippets

In early Search Generative Experience testing, Google saw a 40% increase in clicks on featured snippets compared to regular search results. This is huge for HVAC and B2B sites trying to rank highly and get clicks. Optimizing for featured snippets could become even more important.

  1. Higher ad click-through rates

Google’s tests also showed up to a 30% increase in ad click-through rates with the new interface. For HVAC and B2B companies investing in PPC, generative search may lead to higher ad performance.

  1. Less bouncing back to search results

People are less likely to bounce back to the main search results with generative search. There’s a 15% decrease in search result clicks. This signals users are finding answers more efficiently.

  1. Better user experience

Early qualitative research by Google found users prefer the generative experience over standard search, describing it as more visual, intuitive and immersive. This improved UX could increase conversions.
