Google introduces the Knowledge Graph
Google is rolling out a HUGE new feature in the next few days. They call it the “Knowledge Graph” and it is supposed to be a much smarter system for gathering the search results that you want. This will set SEO experts scrambling to see how to best optimize sites and content!
Introducing the Knowledge Graph
When you search, you’re not just looking for a webpage. You’re looking to get answers, understand concepts and explore.
The next frontier in search is to understand real-world things and the relationships among them. So we're building a Knowledge Graph: a huge collection of the people, places and things in the world and how they're connected to one another.
This is how we’ll be able to tell if your search for “mercury” refers to the planet or the chemical element--and also how we can get you smarter answers to jump start your discovery.
See it in action
When you search for things, people, or places that Google knows about, we can use the Knowledge Graph to enhance your search results.
Find the right thing
The words you search with can often have more than one meaning. With the Knowledge Graph we can understand the difference, and help you narrow your results to find just the answers you're looking for.
