These results are those links with the details about on the topic of our request.
The main elements of SERP are:
  1. Direct search results, consisting of links to sites. This is the natural issuance of search engines, where sites are struggling for the highest positions. The search results page contains, by default, 10 links, but the number can be changed in the search settings;
  2. Blocks with contextual advertising;
  3. Small fields before search results. They can contain typing errors, a quick response to a user request, a calculator, and so on;
  4. Pictures are issued in response to a particular search query;
  5. Related queries – the search query is refined. The user is offered word forms or similar requests;
  6. Elements of management – this includes links to go to the site, prompts when entering a user request.
