Google has recently begun rolling out a new dynamic sitelinks feature in AdWords listings. The links are generated automatically and appear below the text ad. The relevancy of these links is chosen by Google based on the user’s recent search activities. This can help potential customers reach key pages more easily and the new links will appear in ads on desktop, tablets, and mobile.
Links do not exist in a vacuum so it can be important to utilize offline strategies to build your community and to build links. One of the best ways is to host your own event and inviting local media or news teams; prominent bloggers and influencers; and members of your target audience can help your business grow.
