Google "Authority Site" Identifier?

I've noticed something new in past couple weeks. If you do a search for "Google Directory" or lets say something bigger "Real Estate" the first site has a bigger SERP.

They have typically 4 links below the serp, these are internal pages also related to the search terms. I believe this is a new thing for Google, in addition like they think the site is a real Athority on the keyword/keywords searched for.

Any oppinions?

New to me - expanded 'see more listings' imo. For example a search of [webmaster world] displays the following currently underneath the listing -

Google News - recent posts
Google AdSense - Google Sitemaps (BETA)

Been there a few weeks, espcially (I believe) if you search for a company name.

Check out Matt Cutts' GoogleBlog a few weeks back for a post on this and several other recent features.

This sounds to me as a kind of relaxed limit of matches from the same domain on the SERPs page -- normally it was 2, but this shorter listing allows to put 4 or more, possibly depending on whether PR of those pages is high enough to warrant special treatment.

Like if you look at the real estate one, its the only one in the serps like that. Im just wondering if Google "thinks" the top dog there is the "Athority" on real estate, therefor giving it the big Serp with links to internals.

I did check out some company names, and sure enough some of the big companies have same thing, a couple, Newegg(great computer parts) and General Electric, had the same deal.

Well mine had it, and it sticks out like a sore thumb amongst the other serps, looks "like special treatment".

And here I thought I might have been special ;(

On the "Real Estate" search mentioned above, not all the sub-links go to the domain of the #1 listing. Strange.

No but the sub-link is a link that exists in the page of the main link, in fact in a very prominant position.

I'd say G is looking at what people click on most when they get there, info they could only have from their toolbar
