What are sitelinks?

Sitelinks are the smaller links that sometimes display below a site's primary link in the search results. Sitelinks are most likely to appear when someone searches for a specific company name or domain, offering quick links to the pages of the site Google thinks a user is most likely to be interested in.

What is the benefit of sitelinks?

The biggest benefit of sitelinks is the amount of visual real estate they take up on the search engine results page (SERP). We've seen anywhere from 4 to 10 sitelinks, which represents a large portion of the overall results page.

Google's searchGoogle told the world that it was going to transition to a mobile-first index in the coming quarters, and it looks like that time has come. Last week, Google announced that they have started to transition websites onto the new mobile-first index. Let's talk about what that means for you.

What is the mobile-first index?

Google has only ever had one version of its index, which is the database you're browsing every time you do a search on Google.com. This index is a super-directory of every website out there and Google maintains it using bots that crawl all the sites on a fairly regular basis.

It's no secret that Google has been encouraging all website owners to convert to HTTPS, and we also started recommending HTTPS upgrades to REW clients back in 2014. But the stakes are getting higher and Google will be upping the ante next month.

Here's the announcement Emily Schechter of Chrome's Security Team made in a recent blog post:

"In January, we began our quest to improve how Chrome communicates the connection security of HTTP pages. Chrome now marks HTTP pages as “Not secure” if they have password or credit card fields. Beginning in October 2017, Chrome will show the “Not secure” warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode."

The Challenge

PPC case study 1Gary Zimmel first came to Real Estate Webmasters because he wanted a new website for his brokerage, Challenge Realty, in Edmonton, AB. That website, MyEdmontonHomeFinder.com, went live on January 6, 2015, and a PPC campaign for the site was launched January 16, 2015.
