New format for site links

Google Updates SiteLinks functionality

I just noticed that Google has updated the way it displays their sitelinks. See below for the example for a search for Tamar:

Tamar1

Previously there would only be four links with a brief descripiton but as you can see there are now six results from the Tamar website. The changes may have been part of the updating of Google Webmaster Tools.

Google says of these ‘Sitelinks are additional links Google sometimes generates from site contents in order to help users navigate your site. Google generates these sitelinks periodically from your site’s contents’.

Typically these results are produced for sites that are deemed the ‘authority’ for the search term used – how is your site doing?

    These site links have been showed since one month, I guess.
    And important point is that you can control them too. If you don’t want a page of your site to be displayed as site link you can disable it via Google Webmaster Central.
