Benefits of Brand Entity Monitoring

If you want to optimize your brand entity online, you need to continuously monitor its reflection in Google's Knowledge Graph as well as in the SERP.

Brand Entity Monitoring allows you to prove that you control many aspects of the "facts" Google collects about your brand in its knowledge graph.

You can also monitor competing brands, especially those that might be more dominant in specific markets.

Remember that brand entity monitoring is based on periodic brand entity audits and is specific to the combination of brand name, language, and country where the search is performed.

What do I need for Brand Entity Monitoring?

Like a brand entity audit, you need to define the brand name, language, and country

Why is Brand Entity Monitoring performed only in the context of a language and country?

Brand entity monitoring depends on the Google Search Result Page (SERP). Google uses the language and country where the search originates as a context to determine if an entity is relevant. Such context is used w/o the searcher entering it as part of the query.

The dominance of an entity in Google search results depends on language and country. Google shows different entities as dominant in different countries.

While the search results are dependent on location and language, an entity in the Google knowledge graph only depends on language.

What can I do with the Results of Brand Entity Monitoring?

You can use the results of brand entity monitoring to evaluate your online branding efforts. The monitoring will tell you:

All the information in the monitoring report can be used to optimize your content and the online activities for the Google Knowledge Graph. It is the basis for your Online Branding Strategy.

Furthermore, monitoring your entity demonstrates how much you are in control of it. The speed at which Google makes changes is a measure of how much Google trusts the assets you control.
