Q: What are sitelinks? How does Google decide which sitelinks to display for a particular search? Can I customize them according to my preference?

A: The links below a site on Google are called sitelinks. If you search for a company name, Google will often display sitelinks. For example, search for www.pagetraffic.com, and you will see sitelinks below.
By having a good site architecture of links between pages, including a breadcrumb trail and sitemap, you can tell Google which sitelinks you want.
