FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions is a very important page on any website specially if you are providing or selling any services, selling products/merchandise, etc.

Through a FAQ page you can provide answers to most of the generic questions which can come through the mind of your customer or visitor before they choose your product or service. Utilizing this page effectively can help you in conversions by building a trust and some sort of confidence in your customers mind.

In one of my previous articles I had tried to explain or educate about schemas i.e. what a schema is and how it can help your website?

Now, we are going to see how we can implement schema on a FAQ or frequently asked questions page.

Well, Schema’s can be implemented in 2 ways:

  1. JSON-LD format
  2. Microdata format

Microdata Format:

<div itemscope itemtype="https://schema.org/FAQPage">
  <div itemscope itemprop="mainEntity" itemtype="https://schema.org/Question">
    <h3 itemprop="name">What is the return policy?</h3>
    <div itemscope itemprop="acceptedAnswer" itemtype="https://schema.org/Answer">
      <div itemprop="text">
        Most unopened items in new condition and returned within <strong>90 days</strong> will receive a refund or exchange. Some items have a modified return policy noted on the receipt or packing slip. Items that are opened or damaged or do not have a receipt may be denied a refund or exchange. Items purchased online or in-store may be returned to any store.
        <br /><p>Online purchases may be returned via a major parcel carrier. <a href="http://example.com/returns"> Click here </a> to initiate a return.</p>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
  <div itemscope itemprop="mainEntity" itemtype="https://schema.org/Question">
    <h3 itemprop="name">How long does it take to process a refund?</h3>
    <div itemscope itemprop="acceptedAnswer" itemtype="https://schema.org/Answer">
      <div itemprop="text">
        We will reimburse you for returned items in the same way you paid for them. For example, any amounts deducted from a gift card will be credited back to a gift card. For returns by mail, once we receive your return, we will process it within 4–5 business days. It may take up to 7 days after we process the return to reflect in your account, depending on your financial institution's processing time.
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
<div itemscope itemprop="mainEntity" itemtype="https://schema.org/Question">
  <h3 itemprop="name">Will I be charged sales tax for online orders?</h3>
  <div itemscope itemprop="acceptedAnswer" itemtype="https://schema.org/Answer">
    <div itemprop="text">
      Local and State sales tax will be collected if your recipient's mailing address is in:
      <ul>
        <li>Arizona</li>
        <li>California</li>
        <li>Colorado</li>
      </ul>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
</div>

JSON-LD Format

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "https://schema.org",
  "@type": "FAQPage",

    }
  }, {
    "@type": "Question",
    "name": "When will my credit card be charged?",
    "acceptedAnswer": {
      "@type": "Answer",
      "text": "We'll attempt to securely charge your credit card at the point of purchase online. If there's a problem, you'll be notified on the spot and prompted to use another card. Once we receive verification of sufficient funds, your payment will be completed and transferred securely to us. Your account will be charged in 24 to 48 hours."
    }
  }, {
    "@type": "Question",
    "name": "Will I be charged sales tax for online orders?",
    "acceptedAnswer": {
      "@type": "Answer",
      "text":"Local and State sales tax will be collected if your recipient's mailing address is in: <ul><li>Arizona</li><li>California</li><li>Colorado</li></ul>"}
    }]
  }
