Sitelink Extensions: Take people to specific pages on your website

Sitelink Extensions take people to specific pages on your website.

Sitelink Extensions are additional links in your ads that take people to specific pages on your website. For each campaign, you can enter up to 20 Sitelinks. By default, the Sitelinks are set at the campaign level, however, you can also set sitelinks at the ad group level. Specifying sitelinks at the ad group level will override the sitelinks associated with the campaign. With Sitelinks you can:

  • Analyze a specific sitelink's performance. Get granular reporting for individual sitelinks.
  • Manage sitelinks more easily. Create individual sitelinks and share them across campaigns or ad groups.
  • Add double the number of maximum sitelinks per campaign or ad group. Associate up to 20 Sitelink Extensions per campaign or ad group.

Sitelink Extensions

You can add up to two lines of descriptive text under each Sitelink Extension. These enhanced Sitelink Extensions can draw attention to your ad by increasing its size. Only high-quality ads at the top of the search results page will trigger enhanced Sitelink Extensions, so make sure you add descriptions to high performing campaigns, such as your brand term campaigns. It might take some time for new campaigns to start showing Sitelinks Extensions due to time required to build a history and quality score for the campaign.

An ad can display two to six Sitelinks or Dynamic Sitelinks with descriptions, or two to six sitelinks in a single row without descriptions, which will be determined by Microsoft Advertising. When displaying an ad, Microsoft Advertising determines which links are most relevant to the ad being displayed and includes those with your ad. Learn more about Sitelink Extensions policies.
