When you add a new query or answer the existing one, the extension automatically generates a unique URL for it. However, you can always specify your own URL. Each question and category includes meta title and description that can be set and edited from the admin panel.
Speak the customers' language
Magento 2 FAQ module helps you to avoid limitations of a product description. In the FAQ section you can utilize all additional synonyms, keywords, long-tail keywords, and other content that is unacceptable in the product description but required for SEO purposes.

Hide or display URL suffixes according to your SEO strategy and the general URL policy. For example, your company uses a standardized URL format requiring html suffix. Using this feature, you can convert FAQ URLs to the general website format and make FAQ pages more SEO-friendly.
Auto-delete trailing slashes
By default, the extension doesn't add suffixes to URLs, and links usually end with trailing slashes. Since Google considers such URLs to be "non-standard", this slash can affect the SEO positions of FAQ pages.
