Hi all,

My website was given site links last month (around 15th September) - After a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and tears. Everyone at my company was extremely happy BUT then I go a text from my director last night (Sunday 19th) saying they have disappeared ?

What is Google up to ? Any ideas for the loss ?

PLEASE PLEASE HELP
James

Out of curiosity, what is it about sitelinks that, upon seeing them for your site, made you extremely happy and is now apparently causing such despair? Was it responsible for a notable increase in traffic?

I have a couple of sites where they appear, disappear, appear again, disappear. It's not that big a deal; I figure I'm probably just sitting on the fence as to whether I get them there or not, and little tweaks by Google's algorithms send me over one way or the other. My rank on those sites is great, and that's what matters.

All I can say is that on one of the sites that I manage the sitelinks did disappear for a week or so and they are now back. I am assuming it was a glitch.

My website is still showing the indented listing(s) below which changes between what I had for sitelinks?
Does this mean anything ? Fingers crossed!
