Schema code on website pages is a much-overlooked aspect of best-practice SEO – or Search Engine Optimisation. SEO helps your website to be seen nearer the top of Google and Bing searches for relevant search keyphrases.
Google & Bing advise the use of Schema code so that their algorithms can correctly and more easily process the data from each page on your website. Specific Schema code exists for Local Businesses, Hotels, Restaurants, Tourist Attractions, News Articles, Reviews, Job Listings, Events, Movies, Recipes, Books, Music, FAQ’s and many more.
FAQ Schema – Not Just For Nerds!
The new FAQ Schema is really interesting to nerds like us, as it details Frequently Asked Questions on your website in the correct format for search engines.
You may have noticed when doing a search on Google that questions and answers appear in a box above the search results, entitled ‘People also Ask’. Each of these link to a specific website. How good would it be if your website was one of these? The best way to be included in this ‘rich snippet’ is to properly set up FAQ Schema on your website.
How do you set up FAQ Schema?
If you’re doing it yourself you’ll need to read the FAQ Schema Guidelines and then implement the correct code on your website’s pages. Or, you can pay your web developer to do it. A typical rate for this work will be around £250-500
