Google Testing Sitelinks In Search Suggestions
It was just a few months ago when Google.com added search suggestions to the main page. Now, I am receiving reports that Google is testing enhancing those suggestions by showing URLs in the suggestions, in some cases.
For example, Sam at Oh! Nuts emailed me a screen shot of Google showing his URL in the Google Suggestions for when he typed in [oh nut], here is a screen capture:
I was unable to reproduce this myself in Safari, Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer – but Sam told me he is only able to see this in Internet Explorer. I assume “navigational queries” would all do something similar to do, so if you type in [search engine la] Google would show a suggestion for [search engine land] and append at the end, the URL.
To me, this seems to be an extension of Sitelinks, but within Google Suggest.
