I found my website on Google recently, and the sublinks underneath the search entity title contains a suspicious link to Viagra tablets:

enter image description here

Professionals are observing my website all the time. How can I get rid of this spammy link as soon as possible? Can I manually tell Google what links to place there?

Strangely, the link with text "Viagra tablets" still links to a URL on my site: "/calendar.html". – David Faux Feb 1 '13 at 7:42
Do you have a Sitemap? What's the title of " /calendar.html"? Also, your site is 404ing for me ;) – Alex L Feb 1 '13 at 9:31
I would strongly suspect that your site has been compromised and infected. You should check this (unless you are selling Viagra). – joesk Feb 1 '13 at 11:10

These are called SiteLinks -

The links shown below some of Google's search results, called sitelinks, are meant to help users navigate your site. Our systems analyze the link structure of your site to find shortcuts that will save users time and allow them to quickly find the information they're looking for.


To explore your SiteLinks, you can use the SiteLink demotion tool:

  1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
  2. Under Configuration, click Sitelinks.
  3. In the For this search result box, complete the URL for which you don't want a specific sitelink URL to appear. (How to find the right URL.)
  4. In the Demote this sitelink URL box, complete the URL of the sitelink you want to demote.
