    I have a social network and I am trying to achieve knowledge panel for each of my signup users.
    Like for an example when you search name
    “John Patrick” a user of my site.
    I should be able to generate knowledge panel of that users information.

    As that users only exist in my site he does not have any Wikipedia account, wiki data account or Google+ account.

    I have only control over on meta data and page sceema.

    I hope I was able to explain myself here.
    Thanks in advance

    I am curious, you mentioned re brand panel and I would like to get listed for this in all regional search engines.

    …… But a company can designate entire nations in its service area, which means a business could list its service area as the United States, Mexico, and Canada, and its Knowledge Panel would then be visible to anyone searching in North America. There does not appear to be a limit to the number of regions a business can list in its service area…..

    So I have a brand with a physical address in Monteral but I also want it to show for international searches as well. So it is showing the knowledge panel for .ca engines, but not showing for .com or etc.

    What must I do to ensure it shows?
    Structured Data Markup?
    Google + sestup?

    I would love to get one. I have updated my Google+ and Google Brand accounts, but I can’t find a place for the website and social media like you mention. My site is in the Google webmasters account, so hopefully I will someday get a knowledge panel.

    For Wikipedia, is there a way to get a page without paying someone to write one?

    Thanks, John, very useful. I’m now the proud of the brand of myself … but tell me, where do I go to get the covers of my books uploaded? I can’t see anything on the Profile page that would allow that.

      Unfortunately, there’s little we can do to control that, as it’s up to Google to find and index that information. To maximize the changes of that happening, name images of your books appropriately and apply descriptive alt text when you use them on your blog or author website. Including images of your books in your Google+ profile will help as well.

      If you went with the Google My Business option, you can upload images to your profile manually.

      Once Google supports structured data markup for the Book type, this should become much less random.
