How to Include Your Site in Google's Knowledge Graph

Tips to boost your site's visibility on Google's page one

Google's Knowledge Graph is a panel of additional information about a user's search query that's displayed to the right of traditional search results. This feature helps users find reliable information easily and quickly in a strategic location on the first page.

If you're a website owner that wants your site or company to be included in Google's Knowledge Graph, here are some steps you can take to improve your chances:

Create a Wikipedia Page

By far, most Knowledge Graph results are pulled in directly from Wikipedia. So it's a great idea to make sure your site has a Wikipedia page that's accurate and maintained.

Here's an example from RebelMouse-powered property Brit + Co:

Create Social Accounts

In many cases, Knowledge Graph will list your site's official social accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. It's important to make sure that your company has a viable and active social presence.

Here's an example from RebelMouse-powered property GZERO Media:

You can add your social profile links in the Global Settings interface of Layout & Design Tool. Here's a screencast of the workflow:

And here's how your social profile links appear in your site's code:

Implement Structured Data

Implementing structured data on your site is recommended to increase your chances of showing up in Knowledge Graph. This will help search engines crawl your website and acquire information quickly. Structured data also creates rich snippets from your site's content. On RebelMouse, we take care of your key structured data automatically so that your site is always crawled by Google correctly.

For the social profile links, these are marked in your structured data as "sameAs" attributes:

Sign up for Google My Business

Signing up for Google My Business will help pass in information about your company's details directly to Google. This is recommended to increase your chances of getting included in Knowledge Graph.

Build a Loyal Audience + Optimize Your Search Performance

The steps above are great recommendations to increase your site's chances of being included in Knowledge Graph. However, they're not a guarantee that your site will be displayed.

Aside from our quick tips, your site's chances of making it into Knowledge Graph are dependent on the search engine's algorithm, and how many people are searching for your site. If search volume isn't high enough, Google's algorithm may not feature you. Click here to learn more about Google's SEO roadmap.

RebelMouse has built a platform infrastructure that exceeds the digital publishing industry’s standards, while simultaneously cracking the code on Google's algorithm puzzles. Our platform is designed from the ground up to empower users of every skill level to build sites that perform well against Google’s Core Web Vitals, which means better organic reach, search returns, and visibility.

One of the many great new features Publisher Center offers is the ability to manage multiple sites simultaneously under one organization, as well as the ability to switch between more than one organization.

This makes managing many sites across multiple organizations a snap.

Engagement on the Rise: Why It’s Your Ticket to Loyalty

New data from Chartbeat shows engagement time is increasing despite traffic dips

Getting users to your site is only half the battle. For publishers, it’s now become more critical to focus on how long those users stay on your site — and if they ever come back. Q1 2022 data analyzed by Chartbeat found that engagement is on the rise, even though metrics like pageviews and mobile traffic experienced a decline.

Chartbeat measures engaged time by the “amount of time that readers spend actively engaging with a page — scrolling, clicking, or moving their mouse.” With this in mind, their data showed that most regions in the world registered an average of 30 seconds of engaged time on site in Q1. Readers in Latin America led the results with an average of 34.7 seconds of engaged time.
