Please note with WordPress 5.+, it often installs a code in the content of your posts or pages with tags, such as <br />, <p> </p>… So, when you use “Easy FAQ Schema Markup Shortcode Plugin” with a little care to avoid WordPress auto-installs those tags into your FAQ structure.

So, we highly recommend you use “HTML edit” mode to install these shortcodes to mark up FAQs to Schema, which will get better faq snippets on Google search pages.

And, one page or post just uses one group of FAQs that is required by Google. If you add FAQ Schema in WordPress more than one group of FAQs per page, the rich result of Google will mark your page or post with a faq schema error (Duplicate field “FAQPage”). That is not good for your SEO efforts.
