Google Says Search Query Pages Are Similar To Low Effort Category Pages

He was asked about this on Twitter where he also added “It’s not just indexed pages: every week I get mails from sites big & small who got spammed with queries & struggle to fix it.”

Google Popular Destinations Overlays Google Travel Details

Google has been testing overlays a lot in web search on mobile. I guess Google rather keep people in search over those verticals?
