How to build proper FAQ Pages- 20 Examples

If you are running a website that is dealing with general audience or some specific customers, then it is compulsory to have a detailed Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ( section in your website. The FAQ section will provide answers to the common questions that are asked repeatedly. By providing them in one place, you don’t have to answer them multiple times and the users won’t need to ask the questions separately.

As the FAQ section provides a large amount of information in a single page, it is very important to design that page in a friendly, welcoming and organized way. Various websites have adopted different layouts and designs for their FAQ pages. Finding out the ideal solution for your website could be very confusing at times. That’s why we have collected 20 best FAQ pages from all over the internet. Go through them and let us know which ones you like and which ones you don’t. Also don’t hesitate to let us know if you have a new idea for designing your next FAQ page.

1. Bank of America(BoA)

A website of the banking industry is bound to include lots and lots of questions starting from the basic ones to the complex ones. With the huge number of questions, the BoA websites follows that principle closely. What’s more, the website provides you with specific questions for different states.

    Nice collection of examples, thank you. However, I feel I should point out that some of these are not actually FAQs, they are the online help/documentation.
