8. Increase Your Brand Awareness.
5. Create a Sitemap and Add Your Site to Google Search Console.
Sometimes beginners can confuse Google sitelinks with the Google Adwords Sitelink extension. When you’re paying for ads, Google lets you use the sitelink extension to add additional sublinks as part of your ad. This does not influence the Google sitelinks on your organic listing.
Now if you already have an established brand, we definitely don’t recommend changing it just to get sitelinks because this is a very complicated task, and it has its own risks. For more details, see our guide on: how to move your site to a new domain.
One of the questions we often get asked from readers is: how do I get additional links to appear under my site’s search results in Google?
How to Add Google Sitelinks Search Box.
Google sitelinks take up a lot of screen space (a.k.a digital real-estate). This tells the user that Google believes the #1 result is a lot more relevant than others on the page.
You can set this up by using a WordPress SEO plugin like AIOSEO, or another similar plugin that lets you add meta data and other schema elements.
Google uses page titles to generate the sitelinks, so you need to make sure that your page titles are relevant.
This is why generic brand names don’t have sitelinks:
You can see how we have linked to various of our internal website content from this article.
TrustPulse team has done a great job with their page titles:
Google Sitelink search box only appears with sites that contain a lot of content like WPBeginner, YouTube, Wikipedia, etc.
If you’re using the AIOSEO plugin, then it adds the JSON+LD markup for site search automatically.
There’s no guaranteed way to get Google Sitelinks for your website. Unlike other SEO features, there’s no button that you can click in Google Search Console to enable sitelinks for your WordPress site.
Just like Google sitelinks, the search box with sitelinks is also added based on Google’s discretion. The Google sitelinks search box is typically dedicated to websites with a large number of content such as WPBeginner, Wikipedia, YouTube etc.
How to Get Google Sitelinks for Your WordPress Site.
In the past, Google allowed webmasters to “demote” sitelinks from the Google search console. However that option was removed to simplify things. The only way to remove a specific page from Google sitelinks is to either delete the page or set it to noindex. There’s no way to disable Google sitelinks once they’re added unless you de-index your entire website which is not recommended.
4. Google Sitelinks Allow Users to Discover Top Pages.
There is no way to change Sitelinks in Google. The Google algorithm automatically selects the relevant pages on your site and add it to the sitelink. You can customize the page titles, but it’s entirely up to Google as to what text they display. There’s no way to edit the text on Google sitelinks since it’s automated.
This is an extremely powerful feature, so Google only adds it for websites with a lot of content because they believe that including a search box will be the most useful for the user.
Google sitelinks highlight the most important pages on the website. This is based on what Google’s algorithm believes to be the most relevant to the user’s search intent.
This significantly increases your overall click-through rate. Simply put, more visitors will visit your website from the keyword.
Since Google uses backlinks as a ranking signal, internal linking helps Google see which pages are the most important on your site.
Why are Google Sitelinks Important?
Google and other search engines rely on XML sitemaps to properly discover and index all pages from your website.
6. Make Internal Linking a Habit.
This lets us easily discover Apple’s top products, and even have one-click access to the stores, hours, and directions. This is extremely helpful and makes it much more likely for the user to make a purchase.
This can take some time for a new company, but with enough promotion you can get there.
You also need to make sure that you have the important website pages like About, Pricing, Contact, etc created and linked from various areas of your website.
Here’s an example of what a Google sitelink looks like:
Google sitelinks are additional sub-pages that appear under the first site in search engine ranking results (SERPs). These are often internal links to the most popular pages of that website. Google sitelinks are often shown when you search for a specific brand keyword because they help the user easily navigate around the website.
Structured data can help improve your chances of getting a Google sitelink, featured snippet, and even appear in the answers box.
I reckon you follow all the SEO guidelines by Google and you should have the sitelinks, it is not really difficult to get.
The buzz word you are looking for is Sitelinks (link to the explaination), well google does not tell how you can get these site links, but taking a shot in dark at the algorithm it seems that you need to build your website with a very good navigation system, meaning the navigation should be in proper <nav> <ul> <li> tags, have proper title. You should take care of the sitemap both (sitemap.xml and html sitemap), micro-formats, structured data etc.

What are procedure should I take to achieve this?
One more thing to note is that Google shows sitelinks only for search results that rank at the top, so it is most important to have your website rank at top position for some keyword.
Just few guidelines would be enough. Given that I have gone through basic Search engine optimization (SEO) stuff and unable to find how to get this done.
