If you do a search for free ads uk yo will find the first result has additional links at the bottom like Browse classified ads in Drive & Ride - Place an Ad
Browse classified ads in Pets & Animals
More results from Domain.co.uk»

My question is how do you get these extra links?

We dont know but you have to be a very good site and rank number one for the search term to get them.

Hi MetaFunk,

If you mouse-over those additional links, you'll see that these are redirected via Google. The URL includes (among other things) a trader variable. Although I can't be positive, it would appear that these are sponsored links.

I hope this helps.

This has been mentioned before. I believe someone suggested it could be googles attempt at affiliate marketing. (read sponsored links)

If this is the case what is the world coming to?

Google could well be manipulating their results purely to make the aff links number 1. It does happen, I know because I do it with one of my directories ;oP

Since Jagger3, one of my sites has been showing the extra links in some DCs.
It's just an informational site, not selling anything; the tracking code exists, but has nothing to do with affiliates.

It has original content, many one-way links. It's a PR5, but beats a few PR7 and PR6. Besides the homepage, the extra links point to the most relevant pages of the site.
