    Hi,

    I have been asking a lot of questions recently as I am still learning about SEO. I am wondering how would you get your pages like YouTube has theres for example, what I mean is when you type in youtube in google they have there site with sub pages. Please see the pic below, I can't really explain what I am asking very well. I am asking because I want my site to be the same when you type my domain in google.

    Picture:

    [​IMG]

    When I type my url into google my pages are scattered and are not together, how can I get it like the picture?

    Thanks.

    These are called sitelinks. And unfortunately theres no guaranteed method of doing it. It's an automatic Google algorithm. You have better chance of getting them for certain keywords if your site is around a year old or more, your permalink structure is clear and you can access every page on your site easily, and you have title tags for your internal links.
    I got given sitelinks recently and it was only after purposely making such changes to my site.

    You can optimize your site but sitelinks is a gift bestowed by Google.

    From what I've noticed, you get sitelinks when you get the lions share of clicks when someone searches for something. Guessing like maybe 55% (guess). If you get that high amount of clickthroughs, Google assumes that people are just using Google as a shortcut to your site and helps them by giving shortcuts, i.e. sitelinks.

    You also need a solid enough site structure to help ... obviously a 1 page website won't get sitelinks. I find that typically my highest PR pages, most well linked pages get sitelinks.

    Its easiest to get them for your sites name, if people actually search for the name of your site, because most people who search for your site will click through directly and give you a huge percentage clickthrough for your sites name (the keyword).

    That's sitelinks, you can control (enable/disable) it from your google webmaster dashboard.

    I noticed that my site has this, and it all got there on its own, I did not do anything. Might have something to do with age, my site is 4 years old, I only noticed it recently.
