Has your client every noticed these links and asked to modify them or remove them?

Great news, Google has recently given webmasters the ability to remove or block certain pages from showing up as sitelinks in the SERP’s (search engine result pages).

To block pages from being displayed as sitelinks, access your Webmaster Tools dashboard and click the site you want. In the left menu click Links, then click Sitelinks.
