The Snow Leopard version of Java 6 Update 11 (Oct. 16, 2012) is available from Apple:

Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 11

More generally, all recent downloads can be found here:

Apple security updates

Newer versions such as Java 7 won't install on any system below Lion (10.7.0), so you'll have to stick to the older version until either Oracle releases a working installer or Apple releases an upgrade (which is unlikely).

The Java 7 you link to is for 10.7.2 and above and won't work on Snow Leopard. – slhck Nov 3 '12 at 12:08
Ah, I didn't see the snow leopard tag, my bad. – PrivateSniper Nov 3 '12 at 12:35
