Featured image for SERP API starts returning the FAQ element

DataForSEO SERP API starts returning the FAQ element within the array of organic items in Google Organic SERP Advanced API.

Google always tends to provide a more interactive and enhanced class of rich results. That is why DataForSEO Advanced SERP API already provides over 20 different SERP features and today we have added another one - the FAQ element that usually appears above a regular search result:
rank tracker - Google Search - Google Chrome 2020- (1).png

This FAQ box is now returned in the separate faq array within the data of a specific organic search result. If there is no FAQ element, the value will be null. You can get the described element requesting Google Organic SERP Advanced endpoints.
