Google Revamps Sitelinks

Google has apparently made some changes to the way it assigns and shows Sitelinks, the list of pages included under the search results for certain sites that have a clear directory structure. As Barry Schwartz notes in posts at Search Engine Land and Search Engine Roundtable, several sites that did not previously have Sitelinks now do, as of this weekend.

The Sitelinks were officially named in September 2006, but have been around for at least July 2005. Google explains how they work in the Webmaster Help Center.
