How To Check If Google Detects FAQ Schema
You can check the FAQ schema in WordPress by using your Google Search Console and Google’s rich result test tool.
Google Search Console
On your Google Search Console dashboard, under Enhancements, click FAQ.
Next, click Valid.
Green indicates no errors. To view a list of indexed URLs with FAQ schema, click Complete.
Listed are all URLs with FAQ schema.
Alternatively, paste the blog’s URL into the search box.
Google lists the indexed data stored for that URL.
If you don’t see the FAQ for your blog post, it could be that Google hasn’t indexed the page.
Google’s Rich Result Test Tool
Another way to check your faq schema is to use Google’s rich result test tool.
Paste your post URL into the box and click Test URL.
There is a short delay while your post is analyzed.
Then you get the test results.
If your post is eligible for rich snippets, you get a green tick with your results.
