Google has announced a new manual action named "image mismatch", which will be taken when the images on your site doesn't go with what Google is indexing and displaying in its search results.

A new help document on the latest manual action reads:

  • If you see this message on the Manual Actions page, it means that some of your site’s images may be displaying differently on Google’s search results pages than they are when viewed on your site.
  • As a result, Google has applied a manual action to the affected portions of your site, which will affect how your site’s images are displayed in Google. Actions that affect your whole site are listed under Site-wide matches. Actions that affect only part of your site are listed under Partial matches.
