It’s been confirmed by Google that the company has been working on a fix for a bug that has been affecting reverse image search, which can be used to find related images, sites using an image and other sizes of an image.
Since the bug, which was reported on Thursday, the section of those search results that typically show “Pages that include matching images” no longer display the thumbnails of matching images or their dimensions.
Danny Sullivan of Google confirmed the reverse image search bug on Twitter Saturday. Sullivan said that a fix is in progress and that it could “take up to a week for the fix to fully roll out to everyone.”
The following image is what you should be seeing in the “Pages that include matching images” section of reverse image search results:
Because of the bug, this is how that section appears without the thumbnail images and images dimensions.
