    Any views on this?
  • Jim Munro:  ;? :)
  • Morten Madsen:  ;- Your result is a local business (based on the directions option), right?
    Wouldn't it then be irreelvant for Google to show the headquarter address? ;
  • atul kumar: Business profile can be shown easily with your brand and this can be done through implementing JSON-LD Markup to the site, i think this post will be helpful for you.

    
  • Masatake Wasa (wasaweb): With regard to social media profiles, please read . I agree with  ;on HQ.
  • Pankaj Asopa:  ;I already added schema markup but it is not showing. I suspect this is due to that social profiles are not verified thank to  ; ;  ;I read it and followed the same. ;
  • Pankaj Asopa:  ;Thanks for replying, this panel result came when I searched the exact term of business name in google, not sure with the direction thing, however the business operates in multiple country that is why I need to show the headquarter address, or at-least can point service area.
    I already added schema code but don't know why it is not reflecting.
     ;
    Seems I am doing something wrong in here. ;
  • Vulcan Lau: On my site I did implement the schema few months ago, but the site still display the same when googled it.

    It's the same like this post. Wonder what's going wrong?
  • Pankaj Asopa:  ;I searched a-lot on this issue and came to know; social profiles will be displayed only when they are verified, or your business/page/site is very famous.

    I am stuck with schema and output, I am not sure on which thing this output actually depends, I am going to give a try on Google Freebase as came to know the description is coming through freebase and wikipedia.

    But still awaiting experts review/advice!  ;
     ;
  • Masatake Wasa (wasaweb): Freebase was a good option, but it's not going to be around for long: 
  • Tim Capper: Yep. I have yet to see a non authority site receive the markup in the knowledge panel.

    Don't panic. Like everything with G it will take time for them to even start looking for the markup on .'normal' sites
  • Pankaj Asopa: Thanks for your input :)
