Tuning Google Results?

I was just about to install Subclipse (for the millionth time), and googled for the update site details:

Does anyone know how you can get Google pick up or how it detects the Download/UpdateSite/etc pages, shown as direct links below the primary hit? Are HTML <link> elements used for that? Or does it use certain meta data, microformats, ...?


  1. Egon,
    Not sure, but you should have a look at this site:

    ...Statistics, diagnostics and management of Google's indexing of your website, including Sitemap submission and reporting...

  2. I think Google must do it with their algorithms. I maintain the Subclipse site and product and I have never done anything. I'd like to get the 1.2.x URL listed for the update site if I could.
