That brings us to today’s launch. Sitelinks will now be full-size links with a URL and one line of snippet text—similar to regular results—making it even easier to find the section of the site you want. We’re also increasing the maximum number of sitelinks per query from eight to 12. – Google
In case you’re not familiar with the term, sitelinks are the small links to sub-pages of a website after you do a search on Google. They don’t always show up, and are usually located under the first search result. This is done automatically by Google to help users nagvigate the website.
