SERP Questions and People also ask (PAA)


This Outranking SEO Content Editor function gathers all the questions within the top-ranking pages returned by SERP and People Also Ask from Google. This way you will have a comprehensive list of questions you can use in your content.

By default, Outranking analyzes 20 top pages at a time.

How to use Questions

3. Under each question is the **Search Volume** data that you can use when deciding what questions to include to get more search hits on your topic. The first questions in the list are the ones that have search volume data. The Search volume data gives you an estimate of how many people are asking this exact question.

People Also Ask

  1. Click the **People Also Ask** tab. This is the second tab in Outranking’s Questions panel, and it contains a list of up to 20 PAA’s from Google for your topic. Answering PAA better than your top competitors is the effective way for a low domain ranking website can reach Google’s first page against the more established websites going after the same topic.
