Step 1: Follow the guidelines
Google: “For your FAQ page to be eligible for FAQ rich results, you must follow these guidelines:”
- Only use
FAQPageif your page has a list of questions with answers. If your page has a single question and users can submit alternative answers, use
QAPageinstead. Here are some examples:Valid use cases:

Invalid use cases:

- A product support page where users can submit answers to a single question
- A product page where users can submit multiple questions and answers on a single page

FAQPagefor advertising purposes.
- Make sure each
Questionincludes the entire text of the question and make sure each
Answerincludes the entire text of the answer. The entire question text and answer text may be displayed.
- Question and answer content may not be displayed as a rich result if it contains any of the following types of content: obscene, profane, sexually explicit, graphically violent, promotion of dangerous or illegal activities, or hateful or harassing language.
