Over the past month or so, we've been seeing a huge drop in the number of FAQ rich results Google has been displaying both on mobile search and now desktop. Google has not commented or said anything on the topic, that is until now.

So Google needs to find "the right balance makes sense to re-evaluate from time to time, like with any other search element," he added.

John added, "disclaimer: this is not an official statement, just my opinion."

But what John is not officially saying is that maybe Google Search readjusted and is now showing fewer FAQ rich results in Google Search.

I mean, that is clearly what we are seeing.
