How to add Yelp and other "Profiles"

Team-  I am new to this so sorry for the dumb question.  I have built out my Google Business site, and I am showing up in searches no after verification.  I notice other Business site under Profiles have links to Yelp, Facebook, Gigmasters, etc.  I wanted to include these in my profile/search results on the right hand side as I have reviews for my business in multiple locations.

 

Can someone advise me?  My business name is Mark Schaefer Magic

I am a little confused by your request but I will try to answer it and you can guide me if I misunderstood it.

 

There are two extra areas on the Local Knowledge Panel where Google includes other sites:

 

Profiles where Google adds icons to your business's social media sites
and

 

Reviews from the Web where Google shows review stars from other sites

 

Profiles include sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and G+. Your listing shows Facebook. Google chooses which social sites to include but you can help it by being sure that the social sites and your business listing are using the same name and that you have marked up your site using the correct Schema.org encoding. See https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/social-profile-links Its a little geeky but if you are a regular user of Instagram or Twitter it might be helpful to have. Sometimes though even when you do that work Google chooses not to show these other profiles. 

 

Reviews from the Web are achieved by having reviews at other sites like Facebook, YP.com etc. Yelp, which you mention WILL NOT show in Reviews from the web. That is likely due to disputes between Google and Yelp. However ONLY reviews from 3rd party sites that show on the first page of your brand search at Google. Gigamasters is on page two. Yelp as I noted won't show. Toprankblog is not a review per se. Thus it won't show.

 

Here are two articles that can help you understand Reviews from the web

I am including a screen shot of a search that shows some of these elements:
