Google Directories Sources: The Hub

Max, a dedicated reader, wrote me an email reporting a new occurrence at Google Web Search. Query Google for the term real estate directories and you should see "Real Estate Directories: 511":

The first link takes you to Linkelse but not the referral URL http://www.google.com/url?sa=X&start=1&oi=answers&q=http://www.linkelse.com/Dir-Real_Estate.htm. and the second takes you to more directory resources. I wonder what makes a directory a "resource", the "hub" concept maybe? See where I am going with this?

As far as I am aware, no forums are chatting about this as of yet.

Update: Both Gary Price (SEW Blog/Resource Shelf) and Shawn Hogan (Digital Point) feel that it is a "weird" Q&A results. Basically, it is a "poor choice" through Google's automation, "it's just a Google Answers thing gone bad."
