    How to influence sitelinks


    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering how would you go about influencing sitelinks example:



    Is there a way to remove or even change the positioning e.g. remove sale from the screenshot.

    Cheers.

    Here is an answer I found from the mention someone made to the same question of yours in Moz Forums,
    The short answer:

    • You can't control whether or not Google shows sitelinks for your site.
    • If Google decides to show sitelinks for your site, you can't control which ones they show.
    • The best you can do is optimize your site hierarchy, internal links, and on-page elements as best as possible to make it clear (and simple) for Google to crawl and understand seperate sections of your site.

    Google used to have a "sitelink demotion" tool that let you submit links you wanted removed from sitelinks that were showing up for your domain. Google got rid of that function earlier this year. Either way, it was the opposite of what you are trying to achieve (get sitelinks showing for your domain).
