If you have seen some delays in Google Search Console, you might not be alone. So I just pulled up this article from Search Engine Land. Some people haven’t seen any data on Search Console since September 17th, which is my situation.
There’s always been a little delay in Search Console, about two or three days, which is the average I’ve seen. But it seems like a few people haven’t seen any data for a couple more days, and they’re reporting that. So the article doesn’t say that there’s something critical happening. It just says that some people have been experiencing this.
So Google says we’re currently experiencing longer than usual delays in search concept performance reports. This only affects reporting, not crawling, indexing, or ranking websites. So that was straight from Google. So it’s just reporting, not a big deal, and should be up and running in a few days, tomorrow, or whatever it is. But it’s just nice to see that they’re acknowledging that and that if you see delays in the search console, you’re not crazy or alone.
Other people are having issues with this as well. And, as I said, I’ve seen delays. Uh, I’m, I’m accustomed to that. I don’t expect instant data and a Search Console like there isn’t Google Analytics.
So that’s all I wanted to talk about. I just saw this article on Search Engine Land and wanted to share it with anybody who may have been experiencing some delays in their GSC reporting.
