This may or may not be obvious but Google Partners have no special access to organic search in Google. They don’t get special treatment, they don’t simply rank better because they are a Google partner. In fact, there is no Google Partner status for organic search. Google Partners are for Google Ads, Analytics, Google Apps, etc but not for search.

Google’s John Mueller had to say so again on Twitter:

He had to call out SEOs claiming otherwise in the past. But the truth is, even within Google, Googlers can make this mistake and have done so.

Either way – here is Google saying again – nope, Google Partners do not apply to core, organic, search.
