Schema is only a way for you to clearly articulate the where, what and who of your business. It is not a reason for your business to receive a Knowledge Panel result. 


The Knowledge Panel result occurs based on the relevance and prominence of your location vis a vis the search query of the user. 


Please provide your business name, address & web URL and perhaps we can see what is happening.

Should I be adding Schema if I have a google my business account.


Here is the markup:


<script type="application/ld+json">{
      "@context": "",
      "@type": "LocalBusiness",
      "address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "addressLocality": "North Miami",
    "addressRegion": "FL",
    "streetAddress": "1800 Sans Souci Blvd"
      "description": "North Miami Web Design Company",
      "name": "The Digital Agenda",
      "telephone": "954-854-3361",
      "openingHours": "Mo, Tu, We, Th, Fr Sa 8:00-6:00",
        "url": "",
        "image": "",
        "logo": "",
    "priceRange": "$$"},
      "geo": {
    "@type": "GeoCoordinates",
    "latitude": "25.8855062",
    "longitude": "-80.2312503",
  "sameAs": [


But here is our Google My business:

Will this add our social icons? We have one for an organization, one for a local business, and one for Website when we do a schema markup tester on our URL.


Will that confuse the search engines?

It will do no harm.


Google may or may not pick up your social sites and add them to the Knowledge Panel. At least with Local businesses that is very unpredictable with or without schema. They might so if it isn't a lot of work and you really want the social buttons this worth a try.
