Implementing Site Link Search Box

Hi Friends,

Can you suggest me how to implement "Site Link Search Box" for our online shopping website.

I have updated the schema mark up in my website home page, but it is not updated in our SERP pages yet.

  • SEO Analyst: Hi Friends,

    Can you suggest me how to implement "Site Link Search Box" for our online shopping website.

    I have updated the schema mark up in my website home page, but it is not updated in our SERP pages yet. ;

    <script type="application/ld+json">
    {
     ; "@context":"",
     ; "@type":"WebSite",
     ; "url": "",
     ; "potentialAction": {
     ;  ; "@type":"SearchAction",
     ;  ; "target": "",
     ;  ; "query-input": "required name=search_term"
     ; }
    }

    Please if any modifications required in code.

    Thanks

  • Richard Hearne: Not every result will have the inline search box under their result:

    "Search box not displaying? The Sitelinks search box appears only for navigational queries and when relevant for users. Google algorithms use a variety of factors to determine when the box appears, including the information on the site and different types of navigational queries from Search users."
