    I'm wondering if there are any template edits, addons, or Google tools that I can use to improve my site's result in Google Search.

    Currently it looks like:

    Any way to have something like:

    I would rather have specific sections appear as sublinks instead of members. I'm mainly looking for a way to add the 2 columns of sublinks.

    This is entirely down to Google.
    There is nothing you can do other than improve the content/size of your site and wait.

    Interesting, thanks. Thought it was some google webmasters or meta markup. That's a shame.

    I seem to remember I changed one of our sites so that it showed up much better in Google once. Basically at the time it changed from your first example to something more like your second one.

    This may be a link to the sort of thing you need to be doing: https://support.google.com/webmasters/topic/4598337?hl=en&ref_topic=3309300

    I seem to remember I created what I wanted Google to show for each section of the site, at the time it was part of me using AdSense as I tried running adverts for one of our sites for a time. Sorry I can't remember anything exact now, it was some years back and hopefully someone else has done it more recently.

    It may be an option I used that you get when you pay for AdSense adverts, and you can usually try that for free if you pick up one of their $75 free trial cards from a magazine or whatever.

    The links are generated by Google based on whatever ranking factor they feel is appropriate :)

    You can 'demote' or remove a sitelink if it's inappropriate but there's no way to select which ones show up, they also tend to display for some keywords and not others.
