Google will be figuring this out algorithmically – most likely using site architecture and hierarchy. The change hasn’t been rolled out widely yet, but it is very likely there will be a flurry of traditionally flat websites changing their hierarchies to get some juicy keywords in the hierarchy. It will most certainly affect click through rates and searcher behaviour at the SERP level.
