I was doing some searches on Google Search and I stumbled on this

enter image description here

As you can see in the screenshot above, the search results show a summary of an internal search page (the one I highlighted by red underline) on the website (homes.com and findaproperty.com). I would like to show up this kind of result in the Google search for my website internal search. How do I do it? Do I have to put some metatag or something?

Google has been rolling out support for enabling display of this data (also known as "rich snippets") for some time now. Paginated results are common on real estate sites, product sites and so on.

While not technically part of the push towards "semantic markup", there's an expansive piece, including a video, on Google's own blog post on how to signal this type of content.

  • I tried to find the rich snippet for this and couldn't. And the SO question, and the one here that I can't find, seems to work without it.

  • I already tried the rel=prev/next since a week ago. It already shows the 30+ items although it's not like the screenshot above (the Listings 1 - 9 of 3996). I think I'll try giving it more time. Commented Apr 16, 2012 at 3:44

This seems to be something decides to do on its own and you can't make it happen (like most things related to their search results). But apparently if you want a chance to make this happen, based on questions I've seen here and at StackOverflow, you don't need to do anything special except include that text near pagination for your search results. That's it.
