See 8 Google Sitelinks in Action

Yesterday, I got confirmation that Google is now showing up to 8 Sitelinks for a search result. I tried to find real examples of this in action, and finally found something that works on my computer.

A search for search engine roundtable in the Google UK, brings up the 8, as opposed to 4, Sitelinks. For me, the same search at google.com or google.co.uk in Firefox, returns only 4 Sitelinks. Here is a picture of both:

8 Google Sitelinks: Google Sitelinks 8

4 Google Sitelinks: Google Sitelinks 4 ignore the little line under the meta description, those are Google notes

And now when I login into Google Webmaster Tools and click on "Sitelinks" within the links section, I am able to manage those Sitelinks from showing up.

Google Sitelinks Webmaster Tools

That is one of many new features announced by Google yesterday, as part of a Google Webmaster Tools update. Tamar will have forum reaction about that update later today.

It appears that many folks still do not see the 8 Sitelinks as of this time. I suspect by next week many more will begin seeing it and many more forum threads will pop up asking about them.

Be careful with the sitelink tool in Google Webmaster tool. Last week my website had 5 sitelinks. Two of them are to pop-up windows so I removed them. However this doesn't mean you get another two pages included.
