    Google:Showing more results from a domain

    Showing more results from a domain

    Today we’ve launched a change to our ranking algorithm that will make it much easier for users to find a large number of results from a single site. For queries that indicate a strong user interest in a particular domain, like [exhibitions at amnh], we’ll now show more results from the relevant site:
    This update seems very interesting to say the least. The first question that popped up was which combination of keyword and site are going to have similar results?

    It looks like some major sites are going to benefit hugely from this change while others are going down in results. The question is which sites are going to be positively affected. Is the change limited to 'branded' sites only or is there another (quality) factor at play?

    Personally, I rather have different sites to choose from in search results and I wouldn't like to scroll down skipping similar results and have to continue down to the second page. It looks like site navigation which rather should be done once on the site itself.

    Looks interesting...I wonder if this means for "selected" SERPS "authority" sites can get > 2 explicit listings, but in a vague manner, so you can't predict when it will occur...

    Not everyone is happy with this change. I just drives other search rankings further down and puts more emphasis on sites that already dominate the web.

    In the case of "American Museum Natural History" I think that the snippets and Google places results on the top work well. I hate searching for places and not be able to find the address and website.

    Try searching on the "Jersey City Museum"

    Google

    Which results are better the AMNH or Jersey City Museum?

    I preferred the old way of showing it.

    Main Title of the page

    • Extra result 1
    • Extra result 2
    • Extra result 3

    Second result of another site
    Third result


    But Google is changing and we ain't gonna stop them

    Keep in mind that this is only going to be when people are indicating in their search query that they want more results from a particular domain.

    It looks like these kind of results are tied to particular domains but the query in the example doesn't use the 'site:' operator.

    Appears that the links are generated and how they are shown is an expansion of the Sitelinks.
