Structured data is a set of data formats defined by Google to enable an improved display of search results for certain types of data. QAPage is the format defined for Question and Answer pages. A page that has proper QAPage markup will have a rich result displayed clearly outlining the questions and answer(s).
- QA Page data is only rendered for Question and Answer threads. Discussion threads will not render the markup.
- Only one acceptedAnswer is allowed in the markup. If a thread has more than one verified answer, the answer with the most votes will be used. Additional verified answers and suggested answers are included in suggestedAnswers section of the markup.
- To see a rich search result in Google a question is required to have at least one acceptedAnswer or suggestedAnswer. For questions that have no answers defined, the QAPage markup will still be rendered, but Google will not display a rich result until answers have been added to the question.
