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 or 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.
