How To Get Google Sitelinks For Your Blog
Find Out How To Get Google Sitelinks
For a long time, I used to think that only big commercial companies who have an online presence get Google Sitelinks. I was wrong. Even my home business blog may one day display these links continuosly too courtesy of the big G, I’ll come to that soon.
Just What are Google Sitelinks
Well for that I Google a couple of sites which are closer to home like HP Singapore and Sony Singapore. If you don’t already know just what Google Sitelinks are, well the image I took below will tell you just that:
Google Sitelinks are a collection of some related links of a website being searched and appears below the result of this website. Obviously Google has an algorithm that randomly and automatically select and display to the visitor. That’s another reason why it remains such a formidable search engine. And obviously only Google knows and is keeping it mum as in all other hundreds of their Google algorithms. But in this post, I’ve done a little research to try to decipher and arrive at some intelligent guessing.
How Can You Get Google Sitelinks For Your Site
1. Google mostly displays sitelinks only if your website is seen to be consistently ranking as the #1 keyword for the searched keyword.
2. Age seems to be a consideration factor by Google. Your website must be older than 2 years old. I have yet to see a new website get Google Sitelinks.
3. As Google No. 1 position, we would expect the keyword phrase to generate lots of searches and therefore this is another consideration. So you can expect any of your keywords that are not ranking on Google Page 1 let alone No. 1 position will not have any sitelinks displayed.
4. Given that in any website or blog, you may have numerous keyword phrases being targeted for ranking. However my take is that Google only looks at your main keywords and ignore all others including those long tail keywords as well.
Proof That A Blog Can Get Google Sitelinks
Well this blog called Smart Passive Income is a blog I found that Google has chosen to display Sitelinks. I should know because we have a common ranking keyword – passive income ideas. However though my home business blog does get Google sitelinks but not as often as this blogger’s. From what I know this blog is an authority blog that earns a five figure online income monthly.
Start Your Work To Get Google Sitelinks
Obviously when you get Google Sitelinks it can bring you more visitors, more clicks and more sales. So in summary to get to this desired outcome, make sure your main keywords are ranking not just on Google Page One but Google No. 1 Spot. That’s the first stage of making it happen to get Google Sitelinks for your blog.
