    Question Rich Snippets/Structured Data confusion

    So I'm COMPLETELY new to rich snippets...and I THINK I'm thinking of the right thing. I did some Googling and have yet to find what I'm looking for. I'll post a screenshot of what I'm referring to in case I don't make any sense

    Hopefully that shows up when I post this.. At any rate, I'm tinkering with a wordpress blog, and I'd like to see the various categories that are in my blog show up under the site in Googles search results, so a viewer can just click the link to go directly to such and such category without actually clicking on the homepage link.

    I'm sure this is possible, I see it all the time, but I honestly havent the slightest idea of how that's done. I'm not sure how to ask Google exactly what I need, probably.

    The reason you can't find it is because it's not a rich snippet.

    https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/47334?hl=en <-- they're called Sitelinks. Google determines them algorithmically, and you can't suggest any sitelinks to be added...although for some strange reason you can remove Sitelinks.

    Oh wow, I guess that shows how much I know about the topic.

    So, basically there's nothing to do...Google just randomly decides to do it eventually? As long as my code is semantically sound, it may one day happen I'm guessing

    And it may disappear just the same. My site had it, now it's gone. Google is a finnicky ******* of a beast.

    Correct.

    Remember...the Google search engine is Google's property. They can do with it as they wish, and there isn't a thing we can (or should be able to) do about it.
