How about an SEO hack that could literally take effects in under 60 minutes to show up on Google SERPs?
And if you do it right, there’s a 90% chance that the results are going to be positive?
I’m not talking about changes that need hours to execute, this, however, takes no more than 5 minutes to implement.
A few hours ago I stumbled upon Matthew Woodwards new SEO post, where he shared some wired trick to get FAQ rich snippets, simply by adding a few lines of codes to your pages.
In fact, he even got a FAQ schema code generator developed to help you create a code in one click.
I tried this technique here at BforBloggers and it worked, without a glitch.
If you search for GetResponse Autofunnel, here’s what the result looks like:
It shows all the rich FAQ results. When you click on a question, it opens up an answer without taking you to the webpage.
The best part, I can control each and every question and answer. And as I told you before, it doesn’t take too long to show results either.
Two biggest benefits of the FAQ schema:
As shown in Matthew Woodward’s article, you can see a substantial increase in the ranking of one of his article after he added the FAQ rich snippet schema.
You can add it for any post or page on your blog, as long at the webpage has some meaning full content.
This might not work on every post or page, because it depends on Google’s judgment of user intent.
The rules to use FAQ schema is simple: Don’t use it for spamming and abuse. It has a very specific use and you have to be pretty selective while adding to any of your pages. Add the most relevant questions and answer without misguiding the user.
The purpose of the FAQ rich snippet is helping a user get satisfactory results as fast and as conveniently as possible.
You should read Google’s official guidelines before implementing this schema.
Here’s a link to Matthew’s free tool that’ll help you generate FAQ schema code. Enter your questions and their answers in the tool and it will generate a structured data code for you.
His study also showed increased searched visibility as his page got pushed to top 3 results on Google and gained a lot more click through rates than before.
You can then copy/paste it on your websites HTML code or if you are using WordPress, you can add it into your theme’s functions.php file. The tool has an instructions video on the same page, so make sure to watch it before using it.
Once you add the code to your page or post, go to Google search console and enter the exact URL where you added the FAQ schema code. Then click on request indexing:
Once you submit the link for indexing, it will take less than 60 minutes to show up on Google.
Neil Patel has also a similar case study for this FAQ schema, you can read that here.
I suggest you try this on your page that already ranks in the top 10 on Google SERPs. You’ll immediately notice the results going into a positive direction.
Try this hack on your site and let me know how it works for you.
