Google confirmed it’s testing a feature that takes the searcher from the search results page to a third-party site, then anchors them to that exact location on the site while highlighting that content. This is something Google originally did on mobile through the AMP cache, and is now being tested on desktop and Chrome browsers.
Google’s official Google Webmaster Twitter account said “traffic to a website isn’t a ranking factor.” This is in response to an SEO asking if it is. This is a popular myth within the novice SEO world and beyond.
Google appears to have removed the ability to filter image search results by “minimum size,” “exact size,” and “full color.” This change was made quietly, as there has been no official word from Google about removing the filters.
