We just entered 8 sitelinks within Adwords only yesterday. Today they (well 4 of them) showed up in only our company name's ads. However, I notice other companies get all 8 links showing up for LOTS of terms other than just their company (admittedly they're a much larger company).

More important than the Ad extensions Sitelinks, i want the 8 sitelinks in organic. However, logging into Webmaster tools > Site config > Sitelinks, it says Google's algorithm hasn't found/generated any sitelinks for us yet for organic. Question: Has anyone found that you're MORE LIKELY to get Sitelinks showing up on organic AFTER your Sitelink Ad extensions start to show within your ads? For example, does Google's webbot algorthm "adjust" when spidering your site TO ACCOUNT FOR the activity/success of your SUBMITTED (and approved) sitelinks to Adwords?

Interested in some of your experiences re the relationship between Sitelinks for Adwords vs for organic listings.

It's a pretty new thing, but so far I've seen NO connection between the organic sitelinks and the Ad extensions. And that's what I would expect, too. The organic team has historically not collaborated with the Adwords team.
