Google Search stops showing How-to rich results on desktop

September 15, 2023

Google Search stopped showing How-to rich results on desktop yesterday. 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. Google said the How-To, from HowTo structured data, rich results would only be shown on desktop search results, and no longer on mobile devices, when the changes were announced Aug. 8. Google added that “with mobile indexing, Google indexes the mobile version of a website as the basis for indexing: to have How-To rich results shown on desktop, the mobile version of your website must include the appropriate markup.”But now How-To rich results are gone entirely – from desktop and mobile. As Barry Schwartz reported in Google FAQ Rich Results Now Only Displayed For Authoritative Sites on Search Engine Roundtable:“FAQs in the Google search results are now barely showing up in the search results anymore.
