Google Sublinks, or whatever they're called

Posted on 2006-06-03
Last Modified: 2010-04-27
Some high profile websites will somtimes have what I'm calling "sublinks" underneath the primary link that appears in search results. Examples:

How do companies/people get these links? Do they have to pay somewhere, or does it have something to do with PageRank and/or sitemaps and/or what? Information, and links please (if applicable). Thanks!

    I dont think it is upto the companies.
    It is managed by itself.
    You should have thousands of pages of your website to have this happening.


    PS : This is my opinion and NOT a confirmed fact.

    I did some research about five months ago, and that was as close as I could get to what you are asking.

    One of my sites is actually spidered that way as well.

    Thanks guys. I'm going to split the points because the article essentially said what ashishjvw said, but in more concise terms and with more confidence.

    The website that this happens to on mine - I don't think it even has 1,000 pages.  But I will say this - I submitted folder - to SEs a long time ago before realizing that it was not good to do.  

    I don't recommend doing that today of course.
