Site links for yack yack

Cool – This domain now has site links (not to be confused with subscribed links). A  search for the phrase ‘yack yack’ returned this

Who searches for yack yack? Answer – no one, but hey – for those who are interested there are lessons to be learnt.

I’d like to know how they arrived at those titles and why too,they snipped the word SEO from the first link there, from my post entitled “SEO a waste of money?”

Ok, off for alka seltzer 😀

  1. Nice. It seems Google have been implementing site links for a lot more resources recently. Just a couple of days back I noticed a search for ‘David Airey’ shows site links too.

  2. Hi David, good to see you

    I just had to see and yes, very cool, its a nice little add on. Your links seem to be a whole lot more useful than mine though, especially the . portfolio, logo design and hire me ones 😀

    I’m suspecting that the selection is related to some kind of link metric in combination with a nav metric …no idea for sure. It’s odd why they cut chunks off from the start of titles though, doesn’t appear to make any sense.

    @ Webhostingpad…thanks

  3. I know it’s possible to block certain links from appearing, and you can do so through your Webmaster Tools panel. The addresses you enter will be removed for up to 3 months, which is good if the content highlighted is out of date, or if you’d rather not publicise it.

  4. Sitelinks are a mistery to me.

    When I log into my Webmaster Tools account, I see that there are listed more “sitelinks”. When I search for my website (or related keywords) in Google, sitelinks are not there as they are in Webmaster Tools.

    In addition, some of the sitelinks are strange – like happened to you too.

    For example I publish an ezine “AdsMarket Ezine”. Google’s anchor text for the related sitelink is “Market Ezine” despite the fact that the title of my page is the right one!

    Very strange …

  5. I have been looking to have the same thing for my site. I think it looks very neat and can help get the searcher get where they want fast. But i’m not of how to implement it? Can anyone help?

  6. Congratulations. I have notice a lot of site now have the site links. I am still missing out though 🙁

    Does anyone have any idea how Google choose the link text? I have seen site links going to pages with no link and the site link link text wasn’t the title tag.

  7. Dave Toys, the formal response given by Google is the one from my above post 😉

    Indeed there are sitelinks texts that are not taken from the title tag – see one of my above posts 😉

  8. Could it be that Google has it’s own mod rewrite rules for some phrases? Bit scarey if Google starts rewriting SEO terms and pretends SEO doesn’t exist as a topic!

    Anyone else have any examples of “re-writing”?

  9. It’s always very fulfilling when you get that first authority ranking even if no one is searching for the term. My main target is a little more compteitive but it’s hard enough to make page 1 let alone spot 1 with an authority ranking.

  10. congrts!!!

    haahaha but hey its still a job well done!
    you should work on other terms you want to rank for, try doing a little keyword research and all that jazz!

    again, congrats 😉

    Cheers!

  11. Ohh thats really very good man… Are there any SEO tips which will help you to get the sitelinks.. I guess only good sites with great value gets those sitelinks.. The Google Webmasters says that they are generated automatically..
