A Google Knowledge Panel is a prominent feature on Google's search engine results pages (SERPs) that provides a concise and organized summary of information about a particular entity, such as a person, place, organization, or thing. This information is extracted from various sources across the web, including Wikipedia, official websites, and reputable databases.
The Knowledge Panel appears on the right-hand side of the search results when you search for a specific entity. It aims to give users quick access to key details without needing to click on individual search results. The panel typically includes:
1. Basic Information: This includes the entity's name, logo, images, and a brief description.
2. Key Facts: Important details like birth date (for people), location, founding date (for companies), etc.
3. Links: Links to the entity's official website, social media profiles, and other relevant online resources.
4. Notable Works or Achievements: This section highlights significant accomplishments or contributions.
5. Knowledge Graph Data: The Knowledge Panel is powered by Google's Knowledge Graph, which is a database of interconnected information about various entities and concepts.
Please note that Google's features and interfaces may have evolved or changed since my last update. I recommend visiting the official Google support documentation or searching for recent information to get the most up-to-date details about the Google Knowledge Panel.
