Google has long been the largest source of traffic for most websites. Starting now, Google can also drive traffic to your social media profiles.

Thanks to their updated “knowledge panel,” you can tell Google which social media profiles your business uses and what the name or link should be.

Adding the social media profiles means you control more of the first page of Google plus increase the size of your audience on other networks. That’s a huge win-win for your business.

Here is what you can now create with structured data and Google’s knowledge panel:

Supported Social Profiles

Use structured data markup embedded in your public website to specify your preferred social profiles. You can specify these types of social profiles:

You can specify other social profiles as well, but they aren't currently included in Google Search results.
