Hi @Paul_K ,

these categories with links are called sitelinks and are generated automatically by Google. Unfortunately, there is no way how you can edit to your site nor change them.

If you want to find out more about the sitelinks, here is link to my blog post about them: https://www.nikikozak.me/shopify-qa/2021-10-25-sitelinks/

Send me a link to your store to niki@hey.com and I'll help you out.

Hi, @Paul_K! The short answer to this is that no one has control over what shows up in their search results. For Google, their algorithm will dictate how your results show up and if you have sitelinks show up underneath the name of your business.

That said, there are some tips on the web that can help you favor specific pages that you want the algorithm to pick up on. Additionally, there is a thread in our Community as well that helps you with some meta tags in your theme code so that search engines can get a clearer picture of what to index and how to display the descriptions properly.

One of the other resources that I highly recommend is checking out the Google help guides. They have a {page on the topic](https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/appearance/sitelinks).

Although site owners don't have control over what Google wants to show for results, you have a better chance of having site links show up if you have a well-optimized site and your business has a good reputation.

You can check out our SEO improvement guide so that you can get your site on the right track. For more information on SEO we also have an overview page as well.

The benefit of improving your SEO will not only help with your search results on Google, but it will also help reduce your bounce rates on your site as well as have a clearer sales funnel to convert more sales.
