Rich results in search engines are often powered by structured data. Add this to your pages, how-to articles, FAQ pages, and/or products, improves the chance of Google showing your content in a highlighted way. To help you, Yoast SEO automatically adds structured data.

The Yoast SEO content blocks make it easy to add specific types of content to your site, like FAQs and how-tos, while also automatically adding structured data. They help you fill in the blocks and place them properly. At the moment, we have two blocks: one for FAQ pages and one for how-to articles. We’re currently working on a number of additional content blocks for the block editor!

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. It is often used by customer support teams to help offload some of the common questions that keep popping up. While not every site needs an FAQ, many sites — and users — benefit from having one. The FAQ block in Yoast SEO makes it easy to create FAQ pages that have a chance of getting noticed in the search results!

Yes, they are very visible — and easy to get. Just by using the Yoast SEO FAQ structured data content block you stand a very good chance of getting an FAQ rich result. The FAQ is one of the latest search enhancements in Google. Sites are still scrambling to add this, so using the Yoast SEO FAQ content block gets you a leg up. Imagine what you can do with this!
