Manage Google Ads sitelinks

Configure a Google Ads sitelink for inheritance

Create account-level sitelinks

If you want your Google Ads campaigns and ad groups to automatically inherit sitelinks from the account, you are required to set up account-level sitelinks.

You can specify up to 20 account-level sitelinks.

Campaigns can inherit account-level sitelinks from the account and ad groups can inherit sitelinks from the campaign. No additional configuration is required for ad groups to inherit sitelinks from a campaign.
