We’re an agency who do develop websites for international cinema chains worldwide. And Google is currently direct linking traffic to third party booking sites for movie showtimes bypassing our cinemas direct booking. How do we ensure Google includes our clients’ sites as a link to booking the movie times results in the one box?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

I don’t know. I would have to look at the details there. So this is something– if you can send me some specifics with regards to some sample sites, some queries where you’re seeing this happening, I can definitely take that up with the team here and see what we can do there. In general, when it comes to things like movie showtimes, it’s often a lot easier for us to work with bigger feed providers where we can partner with them directly and kind of make sure that the data quality is high quality and that we don’t have to work with all of these small individual providers individually. Because sometimes that makes it hard to really ensure that the data is useful and relevant. But I’m happy to look at some specifics and talk with the team about that.
