How to monitor Google Knowledge Graph changes and performance
Detailed and accurate Knowledge Graph results are sought after by brands, businesses and individuals alike, but few have a way to actively monitor their listings. Columnist Tony Edward shares his method for doing so.
Google’s Knowledge Graph is a very prominent part of organic search results. By now, searchers are accustomed to seeing the panel that appears on the right side of the search result page that provides information about entities such as people, places and brands.

However, this still does not give us insight into the algorithmic aspect of Knowledge Graph rankings and changes.
