Google Adds Local Business Editing To Knowledge Panel

Some businesses can now edit their Google business listings directly from the Knowledge Panel, without having to go to the Google My Business dashboard.

Back in November from the State of Search conference, Search Engine Roundtable reported that Google had indicated this feature was on the horizon.

Now local search guy Mike Blumenthal points to a Google+ post from Prya Chandra showing the feature in action. Chandra writes:

Looks like Google is trialling a new way of getting feedback on incorrect business details.

This new screen is available from the Knowledge Panel as well as the Local Finder, but when doing a regular Maps search the old screen pops up still.

The following screenshots are from Chandra’s post:

As reported last month, Google has documentation for local business info structured markup. When utilized, this enables users who search for a business to see a Knowledge Panel with details about the business.
