How To Get Google Sitelinks For Your Blog?

Hi friends!!! It's been few weeks since we got sitelinks from Google. I did not post about this stuff because no one exactly knows what should be done to get sitelinks for a particular site or blog. However, I would like to share my knowledge about sitelinks. Also, I 'm  going to share few practices which may  fetch you sitelinks. Interested to know what they are???

So, what are Sitelinks? This is what Google defines about Sitelinks - "The links shown below some sites in our search results, called sitelinks, are meant to help users navigate your site." So, basically these links are aimed at improving a site's navigation. Still confused??? Then, have a look at the image below for better understanding.
Although we do not know the exact algorithm that Google uses to create sitelinks, we can approximate and deduce few methods to yield these sitelinks. At least, if not for the sitelinks, I'm sure your website will rank better in the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc...

1. PROPER HIERARCHY AND TEXT LINKS: Make sure your site has a clear hierarchy and text links. That is, create a site with proper CSS which utilizes the <ul> and <li> tags primarily. Add background images and other styles using the the same. This is one main reason why Thesis Theme has been outstanding when it comes to SEO.

2. SIMPLE AND CLEAN NAVIGATION BAR: Have a simple and clear navigation bar. Do not provide too many options for the readers. Get to know what the readers visit most frequently on your blog and put those labels/categories on the navigation bar. If your blog covers a variety of topics, then provide the reader with a second level menu.

3. UNIQUE TITLE: Get an unique title for your blog. If you have a unique name, the click through rate for your blog will increase. If you have it common, then no matter what you do, the click through rates will not high. So, make sure your blog has gotta unique title.

4. USEFUL CONTENT: Provide content that interests the reader. Content is King. So, it's very important that you keep providing content that interests your reader and I suggest you to choose titles that are comment provoking. This will fetch you more comments and improve your blog's reputation, as well.

5. PROPER META TAGS: Make sure you have proper META tags and titles that best fits the post. Although blogger does not support individual meta tags for each post, we can partially achieve it with a little bit of coding. Check out this article - Add META Tags To Each Blogger Posts. It is very important that the META tag on the home page is perfect. I recommend you to read this article - Create An Effective META Title For Your Blog.

I just wanted to share my knowledge about sitelinks. May be if you have an idea about getting sitelinks in a much easier way, then let us know via comments. Your thoughts are always welcome. See you soon in another interesting article.

It is hard to get some links to your blog. I think meta tags are important and the content, i mean good articles good links to other sites and time for all these actions.

Mukund said on March 11, 2011 at 8:49 PM :

@Daniel: Yeah! Exactly! A perfect coding which is free from errors will do good apart from good content and traffic!!!


Mukund this comment is not related to this article. In my adsense account it shows to select payment in dollar or Indian Rupee. Which is better? what is your opinion

Mukund said on March 12, 2011 at 8:08 PM :

@Anonymous: It is better you choose dollars. May be try contacting me via email if you got doubts like that!!

I agree with daniel. If you want links to your blogs firs you need some time. Second you need best content to your blog that you can write, you have to be original. No one wants to see at your blog something that they saw in other ten or fifty sites. Inside the blog the title is the meta title, the titles to your articles acts like h1,h2 and so on. Hope this will help all the bloggers.

Mukund said on March 12, 2011 at 10:59 PM :

@Prajituri de Casa: Yes! Exactly!! You need to have a proper coding for your site along with some unique content! Thanks for the comment! Would love to hear more from you!

I saw such sitelinks only for the first sited in SERP, so if you want Google to show your sitelink, be the 1st.
But at the same time, so always they are shon at all. Even if you have great content and a perfect structure. I don't really know what it depends on.

Mukund said on March 15, 2011 at 7:57 PM :

@Blackberry application developer: I'm not sure about what you said but as far as I know, a clean website with error free design and good content should definitely get sitelinks on the long run. Thanks for your comment!
