    Adwords Sitelinks


    So now we get 8 sitelinks in our ad instead of 4. This along with call out, location, call, schema, price, and all the other extensions makes ads even bigger and pushes organic ranks even farther down the page!!
    I didn't put this in the Adwords forum because I am curious about how you think this will effect SEO.
    Google AdWords doubles the number of Sitelinks on search ads

    Am I right in thinking these are the new scrollable sitelinkes as outlined on their blog?

    https://adwords.googleblog.com/2017/...sitelinks.html

    One thing that stood out from there was this line - "Early results show that people are twice as likely to interact with your sitelinks in this new format"

    The more they improve these ads the more they'll take away from the organic clicks, there's quite a few industries now that just can't afford to miss out on AdWords.

    Yeah that's my point. Google keeps making ads bigger and more compelling. This will certainly effect your CTR if you're doing only SEO.

    Yep, we have very few clients who can afford to ignore it now.

    Soon all ads will be fully interactive, and refer by name to each user.

    Hi, AdWords Ad will not affect your organic SEO, they are separate.

    Even when your ad looks 1000x better and appears way above the organic results?

    Hi Kuznec, the point is it will effect your click through rate. As our ads get bigger and bigger and more compelling it's a big ask to expect someone to scroll past all the incentives, call outs, UVPs CTAs and call only icons that we can put in our ads that you don't have room for in your little snippet

    • Pierre Benneton agrees : Less trafic from same rankings that's my prediction, but nothing new. Google keeps on the same tracks.
