Webmasters report loss of Google Traffic after implementing FAQ Schema on websites

Published

Google FAQ Schema

We know that everyone were worried about a day when websites would lose Google Traffic because Google has been showing everything right inside search. Looks like that time has started to come, well, sort of.

Because we now have reports from SERoundTable where webmasters are reporting a loss of Google Traffic. And no, this loss of traffic is not related to the recent Google update in June 2019.

Rather, the Google traffic loss is because they had implemented FAQ Schema on their websites. For those of you who don’t know, FAQ Schemas are a type of schema related to frequently-asked-questions query inside search results.

Basically, you might have come across some search results or many results where Google shows FAQ questions as well. On expanding them, you see more questions added and the list goes on.

This results are from those websites that have implemented FAQ Schema on their sites. If the content is found relevant, Google will extract answers from those websites and also link to them in the FAQ section.

However, we feel that the loss of traffic is natural because if a user gets their answer directly from Google Search, why would they go to the website unless and until they want more details about that topic.

Some people say tat FAQs is a good thing as it leads to traffic loss. However, we are talking about support sector here where less is generally good because it means that the phone calls and messages for support are decreased.

If you have a website which relies on traffic and you want users to visit your website, it is advisable that you see if your traffic is going down. If yes, it is better to disable FAQ Schema Markup and see if the traffic has gone back to normal. However, some say that removing the markup will not fix the issue once you have enabled it.

Google Search Results sharing

One thing that everyone does when they want information about something is to Google it. This basically means that you type your required information inside search box on Google and the search engine will give you results. However, there are people all around the world that don’t bother to search on Google and rather ask everyone on social media about it. For them, we have to often reply with an advise to “just google it”.

However, it is also known that some people who are elderly do not understand the technology that well. So they often rely on the younger generation to do the task of searching on Google. But for those who know how to Google and just don’t, we have to give them some passive aggressive replies. One of them is to send a link to LMGTFY which is Let Me Google That For You.

Basically, it is a link which sends a particular search query to people and if they click on the link, they will be redirected to Google and see the search results. Now, that task will be possible from the Google Search app itself. Because Google app as well as website now gets a new share button. This means that you can share your Google Search Results.

All in all, you can now just google something for someone and then share the search result with them so they can see the results instead of bothering to search themselves. Also, this functionality is available for every app so you can send the results by sharing on any application as well as copy it to clipboard as well.

You just have to click on the Share button that is seen next to the search bar and it will share the search results for you. Then, you can select any app or service and just share it with ease.

Domain Market

Mike Mann who is known to be a big domain investor as well as a sharp mind in the industry has reported sales of some premium domains for a lot of money. Mike Mann’s report reveals that he sold a total of 9 domains last month. The total amount that was paid by different buyers for these 9 domains was $179,828. It is reported that the average domain sales price was $19,981.

Before getting to know which were these domain names and what they were sold for, we should have a look at who MikeMann is. Basically, MikeMann is the owner of a website called DomainMarket.com which is famous for offering premium domains to the tune of more than 350,000. Now, it does not mean that MikeMann reports every domain sale that DomainMarket makes. Instead, Mike reports what he wants to report and hides others.

Also, it is known that he purchases and sells hundreds of domains every month through market research and other factors. Yet, he only discloses details about the ones that get the highest price for obvious reasons. One more thing to consider here is that Mike Mann needs to sell more than $2.5 million worth of domains so that he can break even in terms of returns on investment.

Talking about the 9 domains that he has reported for May 2019, the highest sale out of those domains has been for Dermacor.com which has collected $29,888 on its own which was purchased for just $7 from Purch in 2009. Other domains include aitko.com, rebelrealestate.com, avoro.com, sundayservice.com, jazzyou.com, havuzlu.com, fancyfarmer.com and pandacloud.com.

Now, one thing that you would have noticed here is that all the domains are having .com TLD which shows that this TLD has the most value which is even more than .net domains. It should also be noted that DomainMarket.com is reporting its monthly reports since 2016.
