Google Sitelinks Update

Feb 12, 2007 • 7:20 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

It appears as if on this Friday, Google has done an update on their Sitelinks. Google Sitelinks, first thought to be Web Categories, was officially released back in September 2006. Google has their official doc on sitelinks in their Webmaster help section.

Over the weekend, it seems like Google updated them and gave some sites that did not have sitelinks, sitelinks.

That includes us, a search on search engine roundtable or se roundtable or s e roundtable, etc. gives you the following result:

search engine roundtable - Google Sitelinks

We are not the only ones to get Sitelinks,, JenSense, Problogger, Text Link Ads, SEOmoz, and BigmouthMedia all received them.

Thanks for the post. I've been contemplating this for awhile now, trying to undertand why... We are seeing it too for the KWP search Phoenix Homes as well as Phoenix Homes For Sale. Weird. Any more insight on this and the meaning or possible future ramifications of this? BTW, I've been lurking for awhile now, but decided to comment on this one. Keep it up! :-) <IMG SRC=""> Thanks, Matt Pellerin Loyal Reader

I am confused on how this helped you? He is just stating that they did an update. This does not tell you what you might need to do to get selected.

John, There are several links in the article to resources on how Sitelinks works and how to potentially "get selected."

Thanks Barry. Yes John, the fact that I found this post and that I needed help at the time to understand what was happening to my site is why I posted my first comment after lurking for so long.
