Anyone else seeing a search box underneath the sitelinks on .co.uk just search microsoft. Is this just goog testing or will everyone with sitelinks get one?

"is this any more slippery than Sitelinks"

Sitelinks are far worse at this point, because they don't just appear for brand names. example.com can get sitelinks for a "widgeting" search when there are innumerable other sites covering widgeting as well or better.

To get the search box, you need to search for the company/ organization/ or agency name, or the domain name with the tld, not always the way you'd enter a site.

Nope, I can see it for a quite generic term, think "blue widgets". My site comes up first, will see if it increases traffic, will be quite easy to spot, just look for site: in the logs.

It may be to do with the replacement of the link "More Results from [this site]." than just the sitelinks.

Did wikipedia ever have sitelinks?

I typed into Google: Wikipedia and sure enough it has a search box under the result, but I see no SiteLinks there now though, it replaced those...

I can't see it from the UK. A search for Microsoft brings up sitelinks and a link to stock quotes.

Use this [216.239.51.99...] instead of [google.com...]
