    Weird results

    If you look at this link, or indeed this one you'll see that google treats the beeb and sitepoint a little differently to the other links on the page. It basically provides a submenu for other areas of the site.

    I'm assuming it's thinking that the sites are the authority on the search term, and trying to highlight the most important sections? Not really encountered this too much before, but it has recently happened to one of my sites (which is great), but I'd love to know a: why? and b: how does it decide which links to use for it's "submenu"?

    Anyone got the goss?

    Coolio - although I'm still a little unclear as to their selection process. But then if Matt isn't spilling the beans....

    I think it is based on the one site for each topic they feel is the authority.
