See Google "Classic" Sitelinks In Action (One Line Sitelinks)

Apr 2, 2009 - 8:15 am 10 by

About a month ago, we reported Google was testing classic Sitelinks, i.e. one line Sitelinks. Well, now it seems like we can reproduce the single line Sitelinks.

A Google Webmasters Help thread shows how two different queries return different types of Sitelinks for the same site.

A search for cashforgold returns the standard Sitelinks:

Google Current Sitelinks

A search for cash4gold returns the classic Sitelinks:

Google Classic Sitelinks

Both are the same site, but showing only half the number of Sitelinks shown on the current Sitelinks format. Plus, the Sitelinks are shown on a single line, as opposed to four lines in two columns.

I wonder if Google will be going back to the classic user interface for Sitelinks?

Forum discussion at Google Webmasters Help.

Update: Dennis Dornon commented pointing to a blog post that shows for a search on internet marketing blog on Google returns classic Sitelinks with numbers. Here is a screen capture:

Sitelinks with Numbers

The thing is, Sitelinks are normally made up anchor text of the links and the numbers might just reflect that and nothing more.
