Are sitelinks displayed if the Ad is in position 3 ?

Collaborator ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I have seen sitelinks being displayed for Ads in positions 1 or 2, but never in position 3.

1) From your experience do you have a print-screen with Ads with sitelinks in position 3 ?

 

I am wondering if it is good to target position 3 with automated rules in this case if there can be no sitelinks displayed.

 

2) Also have you seen sitelinks with descriptions in positions 2 or 3 ? I have seen examples only for position 1.

Hi Adrian,

Sitelinks show in position #3 all the time...maybe you're not searching enough. Smiley Happy

Never noticed descriptive sitelinks outside of top position...could be due to the fact that I've only ever seen them associated with brand terms (very high QS I assume).

I was in the middle of a travel campaign analysis (in Hebrew) , when read this thread. Here is an example of sitelinks in all 3 positions; the ads are for "flights to London", and the sitelinks of the 3rd position takes the user to landing pages about last-minute deals for airline tickets.

Hello Adrian,

AS of my observation, You can have site link if your ad is on first position for top page. There are also some requirement to show your site link. i.e your keyword's quality score, the relevance of other ads on the page, the landing page of your ads and sitelinks and some more factors.

I haven't seen sitelink at second or third position. So I think, you need to bid for first position...

Thanks
Nile....

Thanks for the advice ,my dilemma has appeared since I have been reading in the forum that it is OK to have also 3rd position with the sitelinks..... here is a search term that shows me sitelinks in 2nd position "booking London" :

Cool, it must be that the advertisers here (edit: in my country) don't use sitelinks often enough since I have exhausted 15-20 search terms in search for such a miracle Smiley Happy

 

Thank you all for the examples

Try 'insurance' related terms. These are some of the most expensive and competitive keywords (In the US anyways). Big $$ accounts generally aren't "missing" things like this.

I wonder if this depends on locations.

 

It appears I have discovered an unexplored territory Smiley Happy the word insurance is translated "asigurare" in our country.

 

If I search for insurance it redirects me to local google.ro with no ads, probably due to location exclusion.

 

So for our insurance industry whoever manages the accounts , apparently only 2 have heard of any extensions yet, not even location or phone extensions for the other ads.
