Unfortunately, you cannot directly control the site links that Google displays in search results. These site links are automatically generated by Google's algorithms and are meant to provide users with quick access to different sections of your website.


However, there are a few best practices you can follow to optimize your site for better site links:

  1. Structure your website: Make sure your website is well-organized with a clear hierarchical structure. Use proper headings (H1, H2, etc.) and internal linking to help Google understand the structure and content of your site.
  2. XML sitemap: Create an XML sitemap for your website and submit it through Google Search Console. A sitemap helps search engines understand your site's structure and can influence the generation of site links.
  3. Page titles and meta descriptions: Write unique and descriptive page titles and meta descriptions for each page on your website. Clear and relevant titles can help Google determine the most important pages on your site.
  4. Quality content: Create high-quality and informative content that provides value to users. Google looks for authoritative and relevant content when generating site links.
  5. Mobile-friendly design: Ensure that your website is mobile-friendly and responsive. Google prioritizes mobile-friendly sites in search results and might generate site links accordingly.


While none of these methods guarantee a particular site link appearance, they can improve your site's overall readability and search engine optimization, thereby increasing the chances of Google displaying more relevant site links.
