Why do I need an FAQ block?

Many sites have some sort of FAQ page — this is the place to collect all common questions about a product, service or company. Customer support teams often use it to help offload some common questions that keep popping up. While not every site needs an FAQ, many sites and users benefit from one. The FAQ block in Yoast SEO makes it easy to create FAQ pages in a way that search engines and humans understand them!

Are FAQ pages visible in the Google search results?

Yes, they can be visible for certain high-profile sites. Just by using the Yoast SEO FAQ structured data content block, you might get a FAQ rich result if Google deems your site worthy of it. But, even if you don’t get a rich result, it is very important to help search engines understand your site so adding FAQ structured data helps!

Why do both machines and humans like the FAQ format?

Humans and machines love block-based content because it’s nicely contained and easily digested. Working with the block editor in WordPress lets you quickly build up a beautiful page. Pick the type of block you need and fill it in. The Yoast SEO content blocks are easy to use, as they speak for themselves!

Is it easy to make an Schema powered FAQ page?

Yes, it’s very easy! Collect your questions and answers, add an FAQ to your page, and start filling it out! It is that simple. Do think about what you want to achieve with the page, though. An FAQ is not a catch-all for random questions you think your users might have.

Does the FAQ code tie into the graph Yoast SEO builds?

Yes, of course. One of the most impressive features of Yoast SEO is its elaborate Schema implementation. Schema structured data helps search engines make sense of your content. It can help them understand that this web page contains questions and answers about a product, made by a specific brand. Search engines no longer have to figure everything out by just reading content and following links. Yoast SEO is the first plugin that fully ties all aspects of the site into one big graph. A graph describes how your site is connected to your pages, organization, authors, et cetera.
