How To Add “FAQ Schema” In WordPress (Easy Guide)

Have you noticed that some results on Google SERPs contain FAQs?

Yes, Google has introduced a new schema called FAQ Schema

It allows you to show FAQs under your search results. It looks like the ‘People also ask’ section of Google SERPs.

Having FAQs in Google SERPs will definitely increase your CTRs. But you can’t use it on any type of page. Google has some guidelines for that. 

If your post/page contains an FAQs section, then you can consider using FAQ Schema. 

Like everything we do in WordPress, it can be done by using a WordPress Schema plugin. Here I’ll show you how to add FAQ Schema in WordPress by using the Ultimate Blocks plugin. 

Before moving to the tutorial, let’s see what exactly FAQ Schema is. 

What is FAQ Schema?

FAQ Schema is a new type of schema that allows you to mark your FAQs section to have a rich snippet in Google Search. And an FAQ section contains a list of questions and answers to a particular topic. 

Here’s an example of FAQ Schema.

Now let’s see how you can add such FAQ Schema in the WordPress site. 


How To Add FAQ Schema In WordPress

There are several WordPress FAQ Scheme plugin available out there. Here I’ll be using Ultimate Blocks plugin. 

Now follow these simple steps to have FAQ Schema on your WordPress site. 

Step #1: Install The Ultimate Blocks Plugin

Ultimate Blocks is a multi-purpose Gutenberg blocks plugin that offers two types of Schemas – Review and FAQ Schema. 

You can add FAQ Schema to your WordPress posts or pages by using the ‘Content Toggle’ (Accordion) block offered by Ultimate Blocks.

Now let’s install the plugin. Go to your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New and search for ‘Ultimate Blocks’.

The very first result will be the Ultimate Blocks plugin. Just click on ‘Install Now’ and activate the plugin. 

Once you’ve activated the plugin, it’s time to add your FAQs section.

Step #2: Use ‘Content Toggle’ Block To Add FAQs Section

Just go to the post or page where you want to add the FAQs section. Then insert ‘Content Filter’ block. 

Once you insert ‘Content Toggle’ block, you will get an interface like this.

You can add your question to the ‘Panel Title’ and answer in the box.

You can add more FAQs by clicking on ‘+’ sign under the box. 

Once you’re done adding all of your FAQs, just enable the FAQ Schema.

Step #3: Enable FAQ Schema

In the right-hand side, you will notice an ‘FAQ Schema’ option. Just enable it. 

That’s it. You’re done.


How To Test FAQ Schema Markup

If you want to test whether your FAQ Schema is working or not, just head to Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool.

Then enter the URL that contains FAQ Schema and click on ‘RUN TEST. 

On the next page, it will show if there’s any error in FAQPage.

In this case, there are 0 errors. That means there is no error.

If there’s no error, you are good to go.

Conclusion

While FAQ Schema doesn’t have any direct impact on WordPress On-Page SEO, it’s still a great way to increase your CTRs.

However, don’t misuse the schema. Follow Google’s guidelines for FAQ Schema.

  1. I’m so annoyed.

    I’m working on adding FAQ Schema to my site here: https://www.adinfusion.com/philadelphia-seo/ I have added the faq within the body ( i took them out of an accordion widget because i thought maybe that was stopping it from working somehow…

    The markup was generated from the same tool you use in this post. I validated it with Google’s structured data testing tool…which shows it as FAQPage and 0 errors.

    But when I try and validate it on Search Console the card for FAQ does not appear… WTFFFF

    1. I’ve used the ‘Ultimate Blocks’ plugin on the post. I’ve just checked your page hasn’t found any accordion block.

      However, even if the Google’s Structured Data doesn’t show any error, it’s up to Google whether they will be showing the FAQs in Google SERPs or not.
