Preemptive apology for the cross-post

I haven't seen this noted anywhere in our community and thought it was
worthy of discussion.

Google has removed an easily accessible button that would take you
directly to the image file in search results. I wonder what impact
this may have, if any,  on the discovery and use of images hosted on
Wikimedia projects (most notably Commons) that appear in these Google
search results.
