Google Question
In Google searches certain websites such as techguy and microsoft, have approx. 4 or 5 link under them. Is this Google's choice or is there a way to do this? I looked at the source but that didn't help much. Thanks.

Hope this answers your question.

It is not 100% clear about where the link will show but I think this is it.

Thanks a ton for your help.

Arrow Freeware says
I think (by completely guessing on the first point, though possibly influenced by things I've read and since partially forgotten; with the latter point concluded by general observation) that there are two key factors involved:
  • Set up a Google Sitemap
  • Be number 1 in the search results
Hope that helps

I think that Google just groups pages with the same domain under the main domain as a list.

i think if you haven't submitted a sitemap, google will only show two pages max, with the second indented, and then provide a link to get more pages from that site. i could be wrong though. do you have any evidence to support the theory you mentioned, eriksrocks?

So how come it only does that for certain pages?

Well, it's a valid suggestion. It could be that it only happens when several pages of the same site rank above any page from other sites.
