I am not sure if I am the first seeing this.

Google is showing additional 3 results from my website IF my site rank #1.

Search yahoo from google and you will see it..

This quite commonly happens - you will probably also see 'more results from this site' links after then 2nd/3rd indented result - these will bring up many more results from that same site for the same topic.

Others have mentioned seeing the same.

[google.com...]

Might be the result of submitting a sitemap?

There is a thread in the Supporters forum
[webmasterworld.com...]

It has only been happening for a short time. Very significant change, impacting the first result.

Is this only on certain datacenters or something? I see only the usual two results doing that search for webmasterworld.

Some of the links are so important that I wonder if this is done by human editors. The ones I have seen don't appear to be just random links. The extra links I have seen at least seem to be key links related to the site. Or is it my imagination?

I've been wondering the same thing Atomic. I've seen instances of this before but it seems to be widespread today. Many of the additional links listed certainly seem like links to important pages/sections, FAQs, terms, privacy, sitemaps, help etc.

You would think an algorythm could easily detect a FAQ or privacy page but some of them are unusual and that's what makes me wonder about these sites. What surprises me even more is that a few of the listings I have seen are in little niche areas where you really wouldn't expect Google to focus much attention on.

I always had my preferences set to show 100 results. The SERPS are quite different when you do this. Doing this lots of sites show indented results and with the "show more etc. etc" line below them.

I've been using this feature for a long long time.

Changing your set of results to 10, makes almost every indented result dissapear.

Could people possibly be talking about the smap feature? Sitemaps?

I noticed it right after installing IE7 Beta and I haven't seen it in any other browser. For example, search for "Yahoo" and IE gives links for Mail, My Yahoo, Finance and Games. Firefox, Opera and Netscape have just the basic listing.

These are the additional listings you get that Google sometimes pulls from the websites Google sitemap,
[google.com...]

So far we've only seen it show up for the #1 ranking - and perhaps always in place of a double listing.
