When searching on Google, you can often see a small box pop up, to the right, with information on a business. Handy, right? This box is called the 'knowledge panel'.

Recently, Google announced a new update called ‘Reviews from the Web’  to Google searches within local Knowledge Panels.  This update basically takes the top three relevant, reviews sites in any vertical and aggregates the results in local search results.
