A Google reverse image search bug, first reported on Thursday, causes the “Pages that include matching images” section to disappear…
Google is aware of the reverse image search bug, and confirms to Search Engine Land a fix will occur in about a week. The problem causes the “Pages that include matching images” section not to appear on the SERP or search engine results page.
Google Reverse Image Search Bug Fix on the Way
Usually, when people conduct an image search, the SERP displays thumbnails of matching images, along with their dimensions. Danny Sullivan, Google’s public liaison for search, stated the company is aware of the issue and explains a fix is in the works.
The team tells me the issue with “pages that include matching images” not containing actual matching images and missing dimensions is indeed a bug and a fix is in process. Maybe will take up to a week for the fix to fully roll out to everyone. Thanks for your patience.

Google Images launched in July 2001. It features different options. One such tool is the ability to find related images, various sizes, and more options. Google reverse image search debuted in 2011. It gives people the power to search by dragging and dropping an image into the search bar, through upload, pasting a URL, or right-clicking on an image.
