How to setup FAQ in Schema in WordPress

We’re adding that structured data metadata automatically to the content that’s added to new Gutenberg blocks inside Schema & Structured Data for WP, namely FAQ. Create your own content with the blocks and JSON schema markup will be added automatically.

We have two ways to add FAQ Schema

  1. Gutenberg
  2. Classic Editor

1. By using Gutenberg


If you want FQA schema on your site then you’ll add FAQ structured data content block. You can now easily add the structured data needed for search engines to understand FAQ content. Just fill in the questions, add the answers and maybe an image if needed. Click on the publish button and your perfectly structured FAQ block is ready.

Follow the steps to add a FAQ to your site:

Step 1 – Open a post in the block editor or add a new one

Step 2 – Click on the + button and pick the Schema & Structured Data Blocks FAQ content block

Step 3 – In the block, you’ll add a description field, add more questions. You can also add an image per step, delete it and move it up and down the list.

Step 4 – Here is an example of how to add FAQ content block

Step 5 – Once you are done, click on the “publish” button.

Step 6 – You can test it in the Structured Data Testing Tool

Step 7 – Test the FAQ in Google’s Rich Results Testing Tool

Note: In one post/page you can add only one saswp block.

2. By using Classic Editor

Step 1 –  First go to WordPress dashboard -> Structured Data -> Schema Types -> click on Add schema Type.

Step 2 –  In this option, you need to select FAQ

Step 3 –  In this section, you need to set the condition for the specific post or page or all posts where you want to show FAQ type.

Step 4 –  After selecting the placement click on next, congratulation! you’ve successfully set up the schema markup.

Step 5 – On which posts you want to set up “HowTo” schema you need to select that post.

In posts, this meta box will appear you need to click on “modify current schema” option.

Step 6 –  After that click on the “Add faq_question” button like below the screenshot.

Step 7 –  In these fields, you need to enter the question and answer and if you want to add more FAQ question you need to click on the “Add faq_question” .once you enter this information FAQ schema will appear on the browser like below the screenshot.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent info being shared freely out there.
