Problem with Google Search
When I perform a search at www.google.com while logged in to my profile, the results are now missing the normal Google product links I would see at the top of the page directly under the search box. Missing links include Maps which would normally repeat the same search, but at www.google.com/maps.
The problem goes away if I'm logged out and in a Private Window, and the search results display the links as per normal and I can work around the issue while logged in by navigating directly to Maps and starting my location searches from there.
The example search below is for a location and I want the Maps link displayed, but the same issue happens for all search queries: Whether searching a location or not, for all searches, normal search links normally located under the search box are always missing.
I play GeoGuessr and I use Maps a lot for research. I have not received any warnings about my Maps usage but I wondered if maybe this is Google's attempt at soft-throttling me for overuse.
For example, if I perform a search for
[the pink house, christmas island] then this is what I expect to see (highlight added by me):
But, this is what I actually see when logged in to my profile:
- There would normally be alink.
- Usually, if thelink is hidden I can find it under the menu but that menu is missing and Maps is not listed under the menu.
- Normally the map preview is clickable. For some reason, clicking the map now does nothing.
- The address is still clickable, however, not every search will generate an address, so this is not always an option.
