How to get the Knowledge Panel appearing for your Business Name

How to get the Knowledge Panel to show in search results when I search for my Business Name?

Hi Tim


I had a doubt. Can we stop people from reviewing our brand ??


Is there any option to leave a review feature on a Google My Business Page


Thanks & Regards

Hi Bee


I removed your comment as it contained links, which being an article and not a forum, is appropriate.


You can either create a post in the forum and we will help you there, or post to any of my social accounts.
