“Here’s an example of the Knowledge Widget in action in a blog post related to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. You can see how it is understanding the entities of the page and bringing in useful, related content”.
It is easy to configure how you want the Bing Knowledge Widget to visualize the entities detected on a page. Choose from below 3 pre-defined options:
- Entity Images: when you select this option entities that are detected will appear only as images in a vertical carousel alongside the page.
- Entity Images & Links: when you select this option entities that are detected will appear both as images in a vertical carousel alongside the page as well as links within the text of the page. This is the most popular option.
