Hey Warriors,

When I search Google for my domain name its showing links to my privacy policy and about us page under my main listing.

For example: if you search Google for Warrior Forum you will see 6 links under the main listing then below that it says "Show more results from Warriorforum.com

How do I customize which link are shown there?

    For my website, I didn't do any effort and I got this automatically. Google do it automatically when a website gets too popular.

      You can not tell Google which pages to include in your sitelinks. They do this themselves. You can ask that a page be demoted and not shown in your sitelinks, but you cannot tell them what to include.

        I agree with you that a person can't request which Sitelink shows up, only remove existing Sitelinks. Still, there's ways to try & coach Google into displaying which link/anchor-text you want displayed as a Sitelink.

          Absolutely. Good reminder. Internal link structure is very important in influencing site links.
