Do you think it makes a big difference how you spell the company name? as to whether the knowledge panel appears.

For instance sometimes I spell my name as one word without a space for branding purposes and sometimes as 2 words.

When I search on Google in the organics and type it in as one word, Google shows 'Did you mean' and then suggests the name as 2 words.

There may be citations that have use variations, and I'm wondering if Google is smart enough to work it out.

Does anyone have an opinion of have any examples where the company name is on occasions spelt with and without a space yet appears in knowledge graph.
