I work with a lot of musicians building websites for them. Within the last year or so, I've noticed that Google has started adding an informational overview of some bands and musicians when you search for their name directly.
Clearly the descriptions generally come from Wikipedia and the photos from google images, and the other information is gathered from a variety of sources.
Are there any meta tags or special HTML content or attributes that can be placed on an artist's website that will get populated into this area?
Does something like the code below this exist? (quasi-code)
If yes, does it have the potential to effect this google "Musical Artist" info box, or does all of that data get pulled exclusively from Wikipedia?
