Google Adwords Ad Sitelink Extensions

Sitelinks are extra ad extensions you can have underneath your ad in Google searches. There is a science to setting them up well.

  • Sitelinks give your business more ‘real estate’ space in a search
  • Bigger ads inspire more trust & credibility with visitors
  • Sitelink clicks usually cost less than main heading ad clicks

what are sitelinks

Sitelink Extensions For E-Commerce

Your sitelinks should help the visitor by narrowing the search.  For example, a search for buying shoes should provide sub-categories for buying shoes

Possible sub-categories

  • Popular Men’s Shoes (link to the most popular shoes for men)
  • Popular Women’s Shoes (link to the most popular shoes for men)
  • Shoes On Sale (link to the shoes on sale)
  • Shoes For Kids (link to the most popular shoes for men)

[message type=”success”]Google will only show 4 sitelinks at a time, but due to the enhanced campaigns that came out in March, 2013, you can now view individual sitelink statistics, so it is possible to test out a bunch of sitelinks and choose the winning combination, which I suggest you do.[/message]
