Google Knowledge Panel

I have been struggling for weeks to get a google knowledge panel for my business. It is an online business only, so first I had the wrong type of account set up. I thought I fixed it, but I'm still not getting what I need. When you google my business name, nothing appears on the right?

Here is a link to my google+ account: https://plus.google.com/b/103303594733599166203/+PuppykissesBoutique/about?pageId=103303594733599166...

Can you help me?

Mike Blumenthal wrote a great article about how to increase your chances of getting the knowledge graph:

 

  • Get a Wikipedia entry 
  • Do a citation campaign 
  • Create a Freebase Entry 
  • Get your business name mentioned in authoritative online news sources 
  • Branded links (branded anchor text) 
  • Get more than 100 followers to your G+ page 
  • Make sure some of those followers are authoritative 
  • Post at least once a month on G+ 
  • Get more reviews

Hi there,

HELP..... I have tried several different ways to change the address of an unclaimed business when I do a Google Search on 'Whispering Brook' (Sydney Australia). The wrong street address and street photo come up (Business owners home address). I've spoken to google 2 times and they say this unclaimed business should not show up and my correct business should be displayed. I even tried to claim and delete this duplicate listing, but it still appears. When I google 'Whispering Brook'...this is the correct search listing that should come up
https://www.google.com.au/search?q=whispering+brook&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=vzxeVp-lO-HwmAXH3...

Not this one. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=whispering+brook&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=vzxeVp-lO-HwmAXH3...

I'd appreciate any advise as I'm not getting anywhere with Google and it's misleading and confusing for our customers.

Hello, I am an artist/musician called 'Matt Johnson' google knowledge panel is pulling my Spotify, Youtube link and associating it with another artist called 'Matt Johnson' I have left feedback on the results to try and get it changed but no answer or response....How can I get in touch with Google to make this change? I think it's really unfair.

@Matt J this thread is really old so I'm going to lock it to new replies. You need to start your own thread with the details of your business and what you need assistance with and someone can jump in.
