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.

They will be spending vast sums of money in the US Great!” However, the White House did not immediately respond to whatever dinner he was referring to when Trump talked about the vast amount of money they would be spending on Manufacturing products in the USA. And neither did Apple immediately responded to the request.

Trump only desired his expression that he wants Apple to move its production from China and other countries to the United States. “We’re doing this for the Christmas season, just in case some of the tariffs would have an impact on US customers,” he said on Tuesday after his Twitter message.

Another round of US tariffs on Chinese imports was about to take effect on September 1; however, the White House administration delayed the taxes of some products until this December 15. Moreover, Levies on Apple’s MacBooks and iPhones also delayed until December and tariffs on the AirPods, Apple Watch and HomePod will be effective from the next month.
