How to install sitelink

Yes, the collated display of the blog name search results is what is commonly referred to as the sitelink search box. The existence of a sitelink search box is quite important for search engine optimization in ranking our blog pages. The google search center also mentions that the sitelinks search box is a quick way for people to search our site or app on the search results page. This search box implements real-time suggestions and other features.

Basically, Google Search can automatically show a search box that is scoped to our site when the site appears as search results. The appearance can be different on each web / blog. Some consist of two columns, four columns, six columns, and so on. The links that appear in this column can usually be static pages such as about, contact, sitemap, or some popular article titles on our blog.

Usually, this sitelink search box will be given by Google to websites / blogs that already have one or more articles that have successfully entered page one in search results. That means we don't have to do anything to make it happen. Even so, the appearance of these automatic sitelinks over time can sometimes change in number, or even disappear, but then at other times can appear again

In order to keep the sitelink search box popping and stable in number, we can explicitly provide information and control certain aspects of the sitelink search box by adding WebSite structured data. The goal is to help Google understand our site better.

How to Create and Activate a Blog Sitelink Search Box

To install the Sitelink Search Box on the Blog, we can follow the guidelines as described in the Google Search Center. The trick is to add some code into the blog template to add WebSite structured data.

Or, you can also use the code for sitelinks like the one I put on my blog. The code is as follows:

<script type='application/ld+json'>
&quot;@context&quot;: &quot;;,
&quot;@type&quot;: &quot;WebSite&quot;,
&quot;url&quot;: &quot;<data:blog.homepageUrl/>&quot;,
&quot;name&quot;: &quot;<data:blog.title/>&quot;,
&quot;alternateName&quot;: &quot;<data:blog.title/>&quot;,
&quot;potentialAction&quot;: {
&quot;@type&quot;: &quot;SearchAction&quot;,
&quot;target&quot;: &quot;<data:blog.homepageUrl/>search?q={search_term_string}&amp;max-results=8&quot;,
&quot;query-input&quot;: &quot;required name=search_term_string&quot;

Put the code under the <head> line of code then save your template again.


After successfully installing and activating the Sitelink Search Box, please wait some time for Google to re-index your blog/website. If the blog has been deemed worthy by Google, the Sitelink Search Box display will immediately appear there. Or you can also check it through rich results testing. Hope it is useful.
