Rumours are running rife that Google Sitelinks have undergone an update with Search Engine Roundtable leading the charge. These nifty little pieces of navigation appear below website listings in Google’s search results. All the shortcuts and useful links that may help users find the information they need within the site.
Google Webmaster Help states that ” We only show Sitelinks for results when we think they’ll be useful to the user. If the structure of your site doesn’t allow our algorithms to find good Sitelinks, or we don’t think that the Sitelinks for your site are relevant for the user’s query, we won’t show them.”
Although the process is completely automated there may just be something you can do, should you wish for Sitelinks under your Google listing. Stick with simple navigation and clear sitemaps on your website to allow visitors to browse with ease. After all, the best websites are now developed with both user, and now spider, navigation in mind!
