How Semrush Collects Data About Instant Answers

  • When we scan a keyword’s SERP, we identify whether or not a FAQ is present anywhere on the results page. 
  • If a FAQ is present on the results page but the queried domain DOES NOT have this feature besides its result, its icon will appear GRAY in the SF column.
  • If a FAQ is present as a part of the queried domain’s organic search result, its icon will appear BLUE beside the number in the Position column.
