It was reported earlier this morning, by Barry Schwartz of Search Engine Land, that a glitch was spotted in Google Search Console as many people were missing a full day in their search analytics reports; specifically July 28th 2015. Although the glitch was not worldwide, if one were to look at the search analytics reports for the past 7 days, they may have noticed that the dates would transition from July 27th to July 29th while skipping the 28th entirely.
The search analytics report shows how often a site would appear in Google’s search results. The search analytics report is used to improve a site’s search performance by providing date specific data about the site while allowing the ability to filter various categories such as clicks, impressions, click through rate (CTR), and position.
Google’s search analytics is still a fairly new report, having only been rolled out early May of this year in Google Search Console. Small glitches are understandable and inevitable.
The search analytics report glitch was brought to the attention of Google’s Gary Illyes and he has addressed the issue noting that the team at Google is aware of the issue and is in the process of coming to a resolution.
