More Sites Get Google Sitelinks Feature

Reports are coming from WebmasterWorld and DigitalPoint Forums that more sites are obtaining those much sought after Google Sitelinks. Now that you can get up to 8 Sitelinks for your listing, people simply want them.

My web development company now has them, a search for rustybrick returns 4 Sitelinks beneath the main listing. A couple weeks ago, I did not see Sitelinks for my listing (I believe). The search engine roundtable Google search returned Sitelinks almost since the beginning. Notice how the rustybrick example only shows 4 Sitelinks:

But if I login to Google Webmaster Tools and view the Sitelinks section for that site, I see 6 available links:

In any event, there are some rumors it takes a few weeks for the Sitelinks displayed in Webmaster Tools to update to the main Google search results. Sitelinks is a bit too early to have hard evidence like that and I would suspect, Google would want to make that transition as soon as possible. So we will see.
