Did you know that All in One SEO Pro lets you add Schema markup for FAQs?
This means that search engines can display rich snippets for your FAQs like the example below.
You can’t force Google to display search results like this. It happens on a per search basis depending on whether they feel it’s the best way to display the results.
In this article we’ll cover the following:
Setting the Default Schema Type for all FAQs
To set the default Schema Type for your FAQs, click on Search Appearance in the All in One SEO menu, then click on the Content Types tab.
Scroll down to the section for your FAQs and click on the Schema Markup tab.
