Knowledge Panels for Brand Authority   

Establishing a prominent online presence requires more than a strong brand—it demands authority and trust. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is through Google Knowledge Panels, which provide a snapshot of key information and serve as a stamp of approval from Google itself. 

Google Knowledge Panels are information boxes that appear in Google search results for searches about entities (people, places, organizations). Google stores facts about entities in its Knowledge Graph. Knowledge Panels provide quick answers to users’ queries by presenting a concise summary of information pulled from the Knowledge Graph and various sources across the web. A Google Knowledge Panel is Google’s understanding of the facts about the entity.

Knowledge Panels are invaluable for brands as they offer immediate visibility and convey trustworthiness at first glance. A well-managed Knowledge Panel is able to display essential details such as a brand’s logo, description, social profiles, official website link, and recent news or updates.

How do Knowledge Panels impact brand authority?

Knowledge Panels impact brand authority as a visual indicator that Google recognizes and understands the brand. This recognition from Google is an endorsement of the brand’s credibility and legitimacy. When users see a Knowledge Panel associated with a brand in search results, it demonstrates Google is confident the brand is established and trustworthy. 

At Kalicube, we consider a Knowledge Panel “Google’s Stamp of Approval” because Google has recognized the entity as notable in its niche and has gathered enough information about the entity from various credible sources online. A brand’s online reputation, visibility, and trustworthiness are greatly enhanced by an accurate and up-to-date Knowledge Panel.

Knowledge Panels aggregate key information about a brand in one place, making it faster for users to get an overview of what the brand does, its history, products or services offered, and other details. The convenience improves user experience and increases engagement with the brand.

What are the key elements of a well-optimized Knowledge Panel?

The key elements of a well-optimized Knowledge Panel are the entity name, images, subtitle, description, attributes,entity statements,social channels, People Also Ask For, Filter Pills and Knowledge Panel Cards.

Examples of a well-optimized Knowledge Panel

As you can see in the image above, Knowledge Panel Cards cover about 25% of the space above the fold. The Knowledge Panel covers about 70% of the space above the fold in this situation. Knowledge Panel Cards are an important development in Google Knowledge Panels since they cover a large amount of SERP Real Estate, and the Knowledge Panel dominates the Brand SERP (the Google result for your name). 

Optimized Knowledge Panels have Filter Pills highlighting different aspects (or facets) of the entity. When the user clicks on a Filter Pill, Google displays results focusing on that aspect of the entity, including movies, TV shows, products, or music.
