Google collects data automatically from various websites to generate knowledge panel. When information changes on internet Google automatically updates on knowledge panel. Google shows a knowledge graph of the same thing on its search results page which is universally true and which is already famous around the world.

Google does not create a knowledge graph of any person or thing by itself, nor can you create it on Google itself, but Google itself shows the information required by picking it up from various websites and arranging it as a knowledge panel on the search results page.

This is an automatic method and as the information on the web changes, Google also changes the information in the Knowledge Panel. Google automatically pulls the necessary information from Wikipedia, Amazon, news website, etc.

How To Get Verified on Facebook

First of all, I want to tell you, that I am verified on Facebook 😎. I got Blue Tick in August this year. So believe, I can guide you in the right way.

What is Facebook Verification?

Facebook verification is not about verifying your email account after signing up a fresh account on Facebook. Facebook verification is status of a celebrity’s Facebook fan page or profile.

Sunil Butolia’s verified fan page

Users can see a blue check mark along with celebrity name on Facebook, it’s called Blue Tick means the fan page of celebrity is verified by the Facebook team and the celebrity is the real person which she says she is.

Verify your Facebook profile or page

It’s not an easy way, there is some requirements that everyone need to fulfill in order to get that Blue Tick, if you think you are eligible, you can fill in this form to verify your profile or Page.

According to Facebook profile or page need to be:

Authentic:

Represent a real person, registered business or entity.

Unique:

Be the only presence of this person or business. Only one Page or profile per person or business may be verified, with exceptions for language-specific Pages and profiles. We don’t verify general interest Pages and profiles (e.g. puppy memes).

Complete:

Have an about section, Page or profile photo and recent activity, including at least one post.

Notable:

Represent a well-known, often searched person, brand or entity. We review Pages and profiles that are featured in multiple news sources and we don’t consider paid or promotional content as sources for review.

How to fulfill requirements

Well if you are a notable journalist, actor or singer then you can easily get verified on Facebook, if you are not then you can show that you are. How?

As a journalist

Work with news agency, write for online news publication. In this way Facebook will verify your page if your organization (news outlet) already have a certified status on Facebook.

You need to show some of your work as a journalist, basically they need news articles that you have published on your news putle you work for.

As an Actor

As an actor you need to show your work, credit of movie, serials, commercials, huge fan following, credits on IMDb and news articles about you on big news outlets. Be active on social media.

As a Musician or Singer

Show your music songs on spotify or youtube, huge fan following and news articles about you. in this category collaboration playa a strong role. Do collab with other artists will make you notable artist.

As an Entrepreneur

In this category blue tick is hard to achieve but thanks to paid PR’s (press release) because today anyone having money can reach to big media outlets to gain popularity and media coverage. Entrepreneurship is the category in which anyone can falsely say that they are entrepreneur, but in fact they are not. Don’t worry huge fan following and media coverage makes you eligible to get verified on Facebook.

What is Schema Markup and How to Implement It?

Schema Markup is a machine readable code that tells search engines like Google, what is your webpage about, and what content is available on your webpage. So that Google can better understand your content, and it’s also better to rank your website higher in search engine results page (SERP).

It makes information available on your webpage well structured, you can check that structured data using “structured data testing tool” (now Schema Validator).

How to implement Schema Markup on your website?

Schema Markup supports a large number of structured data types. For example Person, Organization, Website, Webpage, newsArticle, techArticle, blogPost, Products and lot more.

Here is a sample schema markup for “Organization” that you can customize as per your requirement, it may also help to trigger a company Knowledge Panel.

Later you can influence the information in your company’s knowledge panel through this schema markup because Google also looks into your schema markup present on your website to fetch any new information.

How to Create Knowledge Graph for Person

Today I am writing this article to guide you through the process to get a knowledge panel for a person. I would also want to let you know I achieved my own Google knowledge panel in July 2018, when digital marketers not even know, what is knowledge panel 😎.

Presently, about every digital marketer proclaims to be the knowledge panel expert but they are not. Actually they have just cracked the trick to trigger a knowledge panel which I cracked early in 2018.

To get verified on Google, first you will need to have your own Knowledge Panel on Google SERP.

There Are Two Types of Knowledge Panel

  1. Person – Knowledge Panel
  2. Brand or Business – Knowledge Panel

Knowledge Panel or Knowledge Graph

First of all I want to tell you that Knowledge Panel and Knowledge Graph are two different things but they both work for same motive to show information in a rich manner.

Knowledge Graph – Knowledge Graphs are interconnected entities which are results of schema markup, graph database, and they lead to trigger knowledge panel.

Knowledge Panel – Knowledge Panel is the final result that we see on SERP. An information box about person and brand or business. Without knowledge graphs we can’t achieve knowledge panel.

Source of KP

Google’s algorithm works behind the scenes. We put schema markup on our website but it not useful to trigger a knowledge panel because Google only considers as knowledge graph source the websites have high domain authority and traffic.

IMDb, Wikidata, Spotify, YouTube, Wikipedia, DBPedia, Bloomberg are strong knowledge graph sources while Gyaanipedia FAMEData and FAMEPedia are having less trustworthy in Googles point of view.

How To Trigger Knowledge Panel?

Fast way is Wikidata, but it’s not for everyone, means if you are not a notable person then chances are higher they will delete your entity from Wikidata, and if they do so you will lost your knowledge panel.

So there are some other tricks:

  1. Publishing a book, yes I published a book in 2018, titled Ultimate Guide To Become A Document Controller.
  2. Distribution of music, I released my music tracks in 2020 then I got another (second) knowledge panel. later I asked Google to merge both of them.
  3. Get credit in movie through IMDb, I also got credit in movie which helped me getting more attention and traffic on my knowledge panel but I dont know who added me in those movies 😜.
  4. Having a Wikipedia page.

In my next post I will tell you “How to Claim Knowledge Panel” you can also become expert in triggering knowledge panel by reading my “Google KP Mastery”.
