Add LinkedIn to Google My Business Profile

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Good day,

 

I have a new profile and would like to be able to add my LinkedIn and Facebook profile pages to show in the Google My Business sidebar information, when a user searches for the business name. It presently shows Twitter and Instagram, but not LinkedIn or Facebook - likely because these are associated with different email addresses.

 

Is there any way to add the information so the accounts will display on the My Business sidebar?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi There, check out this developer help article - https://developers.google.com/webmasters/social-markup/ 

 

Include your social profile in search results

Use markup on your official website to add your social profile information to the Google Knowledge panel in some searches. Knowledge panels can prominently display your social profile information.
