Hi @Selvamanikandan S

 

What part of search tcs are you referring to ?

Do you mean the KP ?

 

This is not a Business Page, this is extracted by Google based upon authority refrences fro tcs, like wikipedia, the Stock Market, News sources  etc etc

 

Or do you mean the social Icons ?

 

This is achieved by using schema "same as" :

https://developers.google.com/structured-data/customize/social-profiles

 

But be aware that, this is also only displayed for authority sites at the moment.

Hi @mahbubur c

 

There is only 1 KP displayed per search used, so you wont have 2 displayed.

 

If you build your Branding, you will however get a Branded local pack showing up for a Brand name search

Good Morning,

According to your contact page on this site, http://www.besanttechnologies.com/contact-us, you have three locations. Are these the only locations for the business? Are there any other divisions or departments? It appears you have more than one domain - have you considered having one site and creating a dedicated page for each location (location pages). (Easier to maintain one site.) You can make Google aware of these pages by linking to the dedicated page from the listing rather than linking to the homepage URL or another site altogether. If Google is aware of the pages they can surface the page along with the corresponding Knowledge Graph card in search. You can also send Google another signal by adding structured data and using the @id (JSON-LD) or itemid (microdata) to indicate the global identifier (unique URL). It also helps Google to verify the information they have for your business is correct.

I noticed you have a lot of G+ pages, many brand and listing pages. I recommend eliminating some of these pages. If there are a variety of pages you run the risk of clients not knowing which page to follow.

Google collects information about a business across the web therefore it's really important that your business details are the same across the web. When I say business details I am referring to NAP, business name, address (address format), contact and in addition, category, domain etc. I see the name of the business listed differently across Google and also at other third-party sites, which makes it difficult for the search engine. In addition, addresses are entered differently as well.

You mentioned not yet verifying the listing for West Tambaram, are you referring to this listing, https://plus.google.com/103284193124305670352/about? I see a listing has been verified for this location, https://plus.google.com/112279013641152389132/about (reviews appear to be for training centre). The domain added to both listings is the training centre domain. Will the BT Training Institute listing replace the Besant Technologies listing?
