Include your social profile in search results

Use markup on your official website to add your social profile information to the Google Knowledge panel in some searches. Knowledge panels can prominently display your social profile information.

Get started quickly with these instructions for formatting and publishing the proper markup code.

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:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • Myspace
  • Pinterest
  • SoundCloud
  • Tumblr

We encourage you to specify other social profiles as well, but they aren't currently included in Google search results.

Google algorithms process the social profiles you specify and then display the most relevant ones in response to users' queries. (For sites that have a verification process, Google will only show verified profiles.) The social profiles in your markup must correspond to the ones that users can see on the same page.
