Multiple links on a Google serp entry?

On this google search, I see 5 results on what was once the first result

I Googled "bloglines" and the first entry had the main link to bloglines's home page, but also four links to its main menu items: "Log In - Directory - Register - Share"

When did this feature come out? and how can I customize my entry like this on Google's serp?

It's something Google has been testing for a while. You can't control it. It only appears for some searches, some of the time, in some regions.

Ahhh, I wondered what was going on - I did a search for my site earlier, and it (the top result) got the same thing - four small sub-links to random pages on the site (some of which are dead - very odd).

But when we tried to replicate it later, we couldn't.

Mystery solved!

I've noticed far more of these 'Rich Content' links. Search a large concern such as IBM if you need an example.

How and who gets them? Can we apply for them?

I guess you would have to be quite firmly rooted in that first position in SERPs for a while to get there.

At least, there is no question about whether a site is seen as an authority site by Google any more...

I mentioned this somewhere else but it is relevant here.

mysite.co.uk doesnt get the extras beneath it but
mysite.co.uk/gallery/famous_person.htm does.

It is the only page on my site that does.

Bizarre

Bizarre, and now I just saw that one of the larger spammy, affiliated-with-anything-that-moves sites, filled with useless pageholders and misleading info just to be able to put up 20 ads, has their index page displayed in this manner.

So much for authority...

Nikke,

Do you ever report those sites to Google?

I do when one particularly annoys me - usually nothing in competition with my sites.
