Google Names My "Deep Sitelinks" as "Forum Sitelinks"

Last night, the official Google Blog announced that they are now showing Forum Sitelinks. This is a special form of Sitelinks, which I previously named deep(er) Sitelinks. Here is a picture:

It is incredibly useful with blogs, forums and any site that covers a very nice topic, over and over again. This allows Google to show what they think is the best result for the query at the top and then show an additional four results from that site that also makes sense. Plus Google is able to show the date and number of posts in that thread.

Why didn't I call them Forum Sitelinks? Well, it doesn't only apply to forums, it also applies to blogs and similar sites link that.

In any event, it is a nice search feature.

One of my sites cover all the way to the fold now. I have 13 links ranking #1 and #2 with 11 "sitelinks" Which is nice ;)
