How Google ‘Sitelinks’ Can Improve Your SEO

Sitelinks are a powerful way to dominate the SERPs (search engine results pages), increase trust and direct targeted traffic to your site’s internal pages. But what if you don’t have sitelinks? How do you get them?

In this article, I’ll explain step-by-step how to get Google sitelinks for your site.

Understanding Sitelinks

Before explaining how to get sitelinks, I’m going to briefly explain what sitelinks are and why they matter.

Guide to Optimizing Client Sites

The best rule I know about SEO is there are few absolutes in SEO. Google is a black box, so complete data sets will never be available to you. Therefore, it can be difficult to pin down cause and effect, so there will always be a lot of experimentation and guesswork involved. If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn’t, try something else until it does.

Many opportunities tend to present themselves in ways not covered by “the rules”. Many opportunities will be unique and specific to the client and market sector you happen to be working with, so it’s a good idea to remain flexible and alert to new relationship and networking opportunities. SEO exists on the back of relationships between sites (links) and the ability to get your content remarked upon (networking).
