On September 21, 2022, a data logging problem occurred in the search performance report in Google Search Console. This caused some data not to be presented in the Google Search Console search performance report on September 21, 2022. This could have led to it appearing that you had fewer Google Search visitors on that day.

Google stated that it is working to replace most of the data within the next few days. You should inform clients if you did any reporting or plan to do so in the near future.

This is the problem. Google stated that the issue was caused by a logging error. This is a logging issue and does not reflect any changes in search performance, user behavior, or other factors. We expect to replace most of this missing data within the next few days.

This was September 21st, for the Search performance report.

This is what it looks like. Google has annotated this report so that you can see which date was affected.

Soon, fix. Google stated that it will soon fix or replace most of these missing data. It is not clear if the fix will be actual data, or similar data to previous day averages.

Why we care. You may want to update clients or managers if you have provided reports to them. This note can be added to your reports if you are going to soon provide reporting to clients or managers.

You can check back later to confirm that the data has been restored and to determine if you have to send revised reports to clients.
