You might have seen these types of FAQ dropdowns in Google search and wondering how to add these to your blog.

So in this particular article, I will share what is FAQ schema, how to add FAQ schema in WordPress, and what are the benefits of adding FAQ schema.

What is FAQ Schema?

FAQ Schema is like a special code that we put on our website to help search engines understand the questions and answers that are frequently asked by users.

When search engines understand this code, they can show the questions and answers directly in search results, which makes it easier for people to find helpful information without having to click on a website.

FAQ Schema helps websites stand out in search results by showing useful Q&A snippets right there on the search page. It helps us to make our content more visible and helpful to people searching search engines.

Now let’s see how to add FAQ schema to your WordPress posts/pages.

How to Add FAQ Schema in WordPress [Step-by-Step]
