Hi @Thahseer A

 

So you must be talking about editorial summary visible in the Knowledge Panel

 

You cannot add this, Google adds this and they add to authority pages firstly.

@Tim Capper does this apply to the description that appears in the local panel (below the category an above the address information in SERPs)? I can't seem to find a section in GMB that allows me to add this.
