I seached NWhikers on google, and got this
"NWHikers.net - IndexFAQ FAQ Search Search Links Links / Pics Enter Chat Chat / Members Login Login Register Register. Visit, 1 Day, 1 Wk. 1 Mo. All, Yours ...
www.nwhikers.net/ - 39k - Cached - Similar pages - Note this
Trip Reports
Forum Index
Trail Talk
More results from nwhikers.net "

And some of them were links. I was wondering, how do you get a site to do that when added to google? Is there some kind of thing you fill out?

are you inquiring how to get your site to the top of the list or how to display it with all the information?

If you're searching FOR something in particular and want to specify that they limit their search results to only one site, you can use the site: tag, i.e.

Looking for Grebeci at NWHikers.net? Search on "grebeci site:nwhikers.net"

I already have my website at the top of the result wether theres a space or not, what I want is there to be links below that go to different categories. Here's a screen shot
If you notice there are three main links below Trip Reports, Forum Index, and Trail Talk. That was something I was wanting for my site....

We didn't do anything special for google so I can't tell you how to make it happen.  I suspect those are the most popular pages on the site and google is determining it based on information collected via users with the google toolbar.

Ok  biggrin.gif Thats all I needed to know. I was'nt sure, because my friend was telling me about these crazy things about adding your stuff to google. But that pretty much explains things. Thanks. Cheers Josh Lewis.

That's very helpful information, DHM.  Thanks.  Never knew you could do that.
I'm still such a neophyte with all this stuff... but beginning to realize just how much I can learn from tooling around this site.
