Once you are happy with the research you have done, open the Schema Generator tool from the Technical SEO website. You need to choose the FAQ tool. On choosing this, start by adding a question asked and then adding your answer. (As you can see, the tool auto builds the code required to have fully validated code that can be added to a page of content in your site).

This will now add the required code to the clipboard of your device. Go to the HTML page that you would like to add the snippet. You may have a CMS like Wordpress (or something similar like GetKirby) go and log in and go to the desired page or post and paste it into the top of the text. Alternatively, if you don't use a CMS, FTP into your hosting account and edit the page desired. Again paste the code snippet into the page. Important note: The code is written in JSON-LD markup, so don't worry about it being displayed on the page when you look at it via your browser of choice.
Firstly check the page that contains the added code by looking at the page using your browser and looking at source code of the page. (This can be done by right-clicking on the page (click where there is white space), this will bring a menu up, click on the source code option. You will now be presented the code that makes your page.
Step 6 continued
Search by looking for a question you have added. This can be done by pressing the buttons CMD/Control and the F button simultaneously). If you find one, all is well and you can move on to the next step. If not go back to the desired page and resubmit the code to the page. Look for the code again. Once found in the source code move on to the next step.
We are nearly there: Login to your Google Search Console and navigate to 'URL inspection' in the left of the page. Once the page loads copy the full URL (address of the page) and hit enter. The tool will now check if the page is in its index. If or it isn't, just click the 'request indexing' button. Wait for a few minutes till the page is queued to be crawled. Google will now see the Schema data that we have entered.
