Hi @Mark C

 

I'm not quite sure what you mean by sub links to the pages.

 

Do you mean the additional site link snippets in the search results below the main website?

 

Google only shows these when they feel it will be useful to the user, also for the most popular pages in the site, that people tend to visit.

 

There is nothing you can do apart from build your sites authority, as this grows, site links will appear in search results.

 

Another possibility is your meta titles. 

Take your Films page, title.

 

<title>True Love Story wedding films Perth to Margaret River</title>

 

This could never be displayed as a sitelink as it is too long. The next option for Google would be to look for the H1 tag on page to see if that provides a better idea as to what is on the page.

 

In your film page case, the title that they could serve, is not in an H1 tag.

If i have totally misunderstood what your question was, please ask again, with a screenshot perhaps ?

Hi Tim,

Thanks and really appreciate the time taken to come back to me on this. Think you are on the ball there and making sense!

So the title is being picked if too long it then goes to the the H1 tag text?

 

Ive got another real basic site that I've done and works for some reason on Google Search and barely done a thing with it...see image below.

So basically want people to be able to search and see it turn up like that. A lot of people are searching and struggling to find the business in Google.

 

Thanks again in advance

Hi

 

Yes, it needs to be able to parse the page.

 

So in the case of your screen shot :

 

Title of page - easy to recognise

<title>Event Photos - Horse Play Australia</title>

 

And the same title in H1 on page

So in your case, I would change your titles to something like.

 

http://www.truelovestory.me/films/

 

<title> Exclusive Wedding Films - Perth - True Love Story </title>

 

http://www.truelovestory.me/photography/

 

<title> Wedding Photography - Perth - True Love Story</title>

 

But be mindeful that these will only appear when Google feels that these are relevant to the user.
