Promote Related Content as Value-Added Links
To help searchers more easily find what they’re looking for, you can now promote related content by listing it as a set of value-added links under your organic web results. See the sample results page below that shows value-added links for EDGAR filings for a search on apple on SEC.gov.
Do you have related content that you’d like to display as value-added links that searchers should see within the context of each other (such as related forms, instructions, and publications)? If your related content follows a discernable URL pattern, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work with you to promote the related content on your site.
Thanks, SEC.gov team, for helping us build this new feature!

- Image searches without a search term no longer cause an error.
