    How to get a picture to appear in google when searching your school?

    Hi

    How do you get google to display a picture next to the map of your school when you search the schools name? Like the attachment. Screen Shot 2013-03-14 at 16.04.48.png Where they have the logo appearing.

    Thanks

    I think if it can find info on a couple of sources it scrapes it together?
    so if your wikipedia, Google+ and Schools website pages all link to each other it kind of bundles them together. - certainly where it's getting it's info in that picture.
    @ZeroHour might have a bit more of an idea though, as google luvz him.

    I believe Google+ is the key. Whenever you see a result from somebody's blog with their photo alongside it, it's always their Google+ photo. So you'd need to create a Google+ account for the school, then link it to your school's website (there's a profile setting that allows you to link to your website).

    I may be wrong, wait and see what @ZeroHour has to say before you go to the effort of creating an account!


    EDIT: I am wrong, the example you posted gets it's image from Wikipedia.

    Ours was populated from wikipedia and the image from our website.
