Google Site-links Updates

What is Google site-links?

Take a look at the below screen shot, you can see a list of URLs from the same website. This kind of listings in the SERP (Search Engine Result Page) is called site-links.

How useful is this?

With this, we can find all the useful section of the particular website even without viewing the website online. This saves our time. Google always take much effort to save our time in all possible ways.

How can I get site-links listed for my website?

For now it is an automated process from Google, but they have planned to make this as manual process after doing some modification in their algorithm.

Will the site-links appear for all the websites that is listed first in the SERPs?

No. As the process is automated now, they are showing site-links only for popular websites, also they are showing this for websites from which they crawl the pages effectively.

Well, when they are making this (site-links) live for all the websites?

This is not defined clearly by Google for now, but they are in the process of making it live for all the websites that is listed on #1 position.

Is this a good effort by Google?

I say, yes! Others post your valuable comments.

hello matt,

"they are showing site-links only for popular websites," - it is wrong.

It’s depending upon number of visitors landing pages on that site.

Ravi, Of course, that is correct. If website is getting more traffic, then obviously it is a popular website! Will you accept?

Of course matt, if that site have many tree-structure links. Google will display site-links.
