How to use special characters and symbols, the search results of search engines (SERPs) revalue? Generate entries with special characters tricks, achieve this higher clickthrough rates.


Enhance the SERP results with special characters


You should try this just once, I had pretty good results and a visible increase of in click rate z.B. with the OK sign and the fat middle dot as separator of keywords to the page. Other symbols and characters certainly help, to separate the wheat from the chaff as a.

Since I ever can remember the special character with old-something me and I need one but again times, I got this List of ASCII characters and Unicode symbols launched, which I now also quite like to use.

Again and again I fall over an entry in the SERPs, contains special ASCII characters and behold, I myself am also tempted, This entry click, Although maybe a including the entry would be high-quality. But I like better the symbol or special character entry, and as I click then hold more on it out of curiosity.

Some popular examples:

Fahrrad.de is currently ranked 1 on Google, If you post “Bicycle” searches. However, they use special characters in the Web page description, to draw attention to your listing in the search engines:

llll➤ Bicycle günstig✓ to buy & until -40% sparen✓ now in the Bicycles Online shop Bicycle.★★★★★ de Mon-Fri until 16 Watch ✚ shipping order today!

Here you can see very nice, How to use the various special characters leads to a quite attractive entry. The people of Fahrrad.de can save the use of microdata, usually the yellow star in the game come as a result in the SERP entries.

But also the 5 Black Star at this point catch attention. After the searchers “Bicycle” It probably also not particularly interested, where are the star and that they are not yellow.

Other entries can be found in the same sector, create it with weird characters in the SERPs. The bike-Discount.de is ranked 2 for the search “Bike” and Lo and behold, also here is working with special characters:

www.bike-discount.de /.

The 5☆ ✓ shop for bicycles, ✓ Bike parts, ✓ ☆ cheap order ✓ clothing and accessories, quickly and reliably delivered ☆ Bike-Discount.

Components – Bikes – Bicycle clothing – Sale
Using the star here, however as I find not so cleverly done, as with Fahrrad.de, the full star because it better suited. Get more attention, and you want to reach that Yes.

You can find Bikeunit.de in the bike search on eighth, also the use of special ASCII characters seems quite appealing:

www.bikeunit.de /.

Bike Shop bikeunit.de ★★★★★ downhill✓ & Freeride✓ Bikes all brands! Ready to race & super cheap! SHIPPING TODAY – order Mon-Fri until 16 h

So now we have some example and certainly also has optimizations can be found. But already quite well managed, I find the version of Fahrrad.de.
