The following resources will help you understand how knowledge graph is now integrated into search and other products, and how it will change search in such a fundamental way.

At the end I want to highlight this part from Google Inside Search:

Data from the Knowledge Graph

The information shown in this section comes from what we call the Knowledge Graph, a massive collection of information about real-world things and their connections to other things. The graph gathers information about a person, place, or thing from many sources, then refines the resulting information based on the most popular questions people ask about that subject.

Here are just some of the sources for this web of information:

✖ Online resources like Wikipedia
✖ Subject-specific resources like Weather Underground for weather information and the World Bank for economic statistics
✖ Publicly available data from, a free and open database of over 24 million things, including movies, books, TV shows, celebrities, locations, companies, and more
✖ Google search data (used to measure the popularity of a subject and help decide what information people most want to see)

And I agree 100% with +Mark Traphagen. From a marketing perspective, is this another reason why those most active in Google+ be the big winners in the future?

What do you think?

Thanks, +Ivan Dimitrijević this is a wonderful post. I messed around a bit with some of this and really fell in love, especially after searching Ronnie James Dio to see everything it lists.

I also agree that being more active in Google+ will only make this better with time. I can imagine that when you search your own name on Google you will also get some what of a knowledge graph on yourself.
Thanks for a nice comment +Steven Maloney. :]
I think that many content creators will change the way how they look and feel about web pages. I can expect something that we may call, or not, knowledge graph optimization for web pages.
Should I send my kid to school or just let him Google under some guidance? I just want to see the impact of this on Google visual search (Goggles). See the information.
May I add, Slovenia? :) My son is 3.5, nice looking, kind. He has gmail account, so can I reccomend him for your daughter? :)
Thanks for the mention +Ivan Dimitrijević :) An ultimate resource/blog post on Knowledge Graph would be perfect.

This is a big change in search (even bigger than the changes brought by Penguin) and ignoring this would equate to committing a SERP suicide. .
