Google Webmaster Tools Not Updating Sitelinks

Google Webmaster Tools Not Updating Sitelinks

I’ve noticed that the Search Engine Journal listings in Google have been showing Sitelinks for a good month or so now, but noticed that those site links are not the exact ones I’d like to see listed in the Google index when people search for “search engine journal“, my name or other terms which serve the Search Engine Journal homepage in Google results.

Here are the Sitelinks for SEJ as served in Google results:

google webmaster central

And here is the message Google is giving me when I try to view my Sitelinks in Google Webmaster Central Tools:

Google has not generated any sitelinks for your site. Sitelinks are completely automated, and we show them only if we think they’ll be useful to the user. If your site’s structure doesn’t allow our algorithms to find good sitelinks, or we don’t think that the sitelinks are relevant to the user’s query, we won’t show them. However, we are always working to improve how we find and display sitelinks.

Hmmm… looks like I’m not the only one with jet lag.
