Incontent Link Showing in Google Search

I'm noticing new incontent links appearing in the snippet area of Google search. I ran a search query for "seo marketing" and the 2nd organic result is showing an incontent link in the snippet area:

A click on the link will take you to the same main result page but will jump you to the exact paragraph that Google thinks you are looking for (similar to site links, but a little different because it is in the snippet area).

It appears that Google is doing some testing on this feature for future use as it is selectively appearing for various searches.

New Restrictions on FTD's FOL Websites

On September 1st, a new restriction for FOL florists emerged in the administration area of the FOL portal related to updating text on the homepage of YOUR website.

In that regard, after you attempt an update you will get this:
"The Content you've requested requires support assistance. Please contact FOL support at 800-576-6721."

After calling the number I spoke with a FTD FOL rep. by the name of "Muigel" who told me that FTD must now manually approve update requests due to recent "federal rules and regulations that have been put in place."

Your comments are welcome.....
