Google announced that they have completely removed the How-To Rich Results. The reason given for removing the How-To rich results is that this is a part of simplifying the search results pages. How-To Rich ResultsThe How-To rich results relied on the HowTo Schema structured data in order to make a webpage eligible for appearing in a rich result. Google has completely removed the rich results from the desktop versions of the search results pages. Since How-to results no longer appear in Google Search, we will be dropping the How-to search appearance, rich result report, and support in the Rich results test in 30 days.
