Guide to Building A Personal Brand Online With A Solid Google Knowledge Panel


Building your online brand helps in many ways in a time where most people find what they search for via search engines like Google or Bing.

Google remains the most popular search engine with a market share of around 85.53 percent in early 2023 according to Statista.

I would therefore highly recommend building a solid knowledge panel on Google to not miss the opportunities on offer. I have been an online business consultant since 2013 and I started as a SEO consultant where I would repeatedly recommend this as you can see here:

When someone looks for information about you, what do they? – They search your name on Google!

Do it yourself and check what appears. Do you like how you appear on Google under your name?

If you feel your current Google knowledge graph does not present you as best as possible, this guide will give you some ideas about building a personal brand online with a focus on Google’s knowledge panel.

Why build a personal brand with the Google Knowledge Panel?

Since I posted the below screenshots on my Facebook profile, many asked me how to get the knowledge panel on Google.

As you can see, the knowledge panel provides a nicely presented overview of the work I have published online and how people can find me. This overview gives my online presence an instant authority and creates curiosity for searchers to check more about me.

I believe having the knowledge panel on Google as well as on Bing is very helpful for any entrepreneur, freelancer, consultant, and a must for any SEO consultant. I am not alone in this and you will find other entrepreneurs recommending this too as for example in the magazine.

Having such a knowledge panel will encourage anyone conducting a search about you to contact you, hire you and want do business with you.

Of course, it depends on what’s showing up and you should understand how to manage this. If it’s time to clean it up and polish it or add more information to it, read on.

How to build your personal brand online on Google

In today’s digital age, building a personal brand online is essential for establishing your professional identity, gaining credibility, and expanding your network.

One powerful tool to showcase your personal brand is the Google knowledge panel. It appears prominently in Google search results and provides a concise overview of your online presence.

There are some the steps to build a strong personal brand online and highlight it on the Google Knowledge Panel.

1.    Define Your Brand Identity:

  • Identify your niche and target audience: Determine the area of expertise or the specific industry you want to be known for. Understand who your ideal audience is, their needs, and how you can add value. This will be important for your strategy as the content you publish should be linked to this.
  • Craft your unique value proposition: Define what sets you and your work or business apart from others in your field and articulate it in a clear and concise manner in any content you publish online.
  • Develop your personal brand voice: Establish a consistent tone and style across all your online platforms to build recognition and trust. You can hire branding services to get support with this.

2.    Optimize Your Online Presence:

  • Create a professional website or blog: A personal website serves as a central hub for your online brand and Google will use this information for your knowledge panel. Showcase your expertise, share valuable tailored content, and make it easy for people to connect with you.
  • Leverage social media platforms: Choose platforms that align with your brand and target audience. Develop a content strategy and consistently share engaging and relevant content, which can of course be linked with your website.
  • Guest blogging and content contribution: Contribute guest articles to well-established websites and industry blogs to expand your reach and build credibility. Via ClickDo we also offer guest posting services and I explain more about it here and in this guest blogging SEO guide.
  • Engage in online communities: Participate in relevant online forums, industry groups, and social media communities. Provide valuable insights, answer questions, and connect with like-minded professionals. You should have a blog on your website where you share your expert insights and advice, and you can enable comments to communicate with your audience.

3.    Optimize Your Google Knowledge Panel:

  • Claim your Google Knowledge Panel: Google may automatically generate a knowledge panel for you based on the available information. Claim and verify it to have control over the content displayed. Simply click on “claim your knowledge panel” when searching for your name – you will need to verify it with a valid ID and a photograph of yourself and Google will send the necessary information with you.
  • Optimize your online presence: Ensure your personal brand is well-represented across various online platforms. Optimize your website, social media profiles, and other online content to improve your chances of appearing in the knowledge panel in the way you want. If you publish books on Kindle, they will also show up for example, so plan any online content you’d like people to find when searching for you.
  • Focus on building a strong online presence: Consistently produce high-quality content, engage with your audience, and maintain an active online presence to increase your visibility. If any profiles or websites you no longer use remain active, try to delete, and remove them to avoid any outdated information to be shown. You should also ensure that all profiles can relate to your name to make it more obvious for bots and people.
