Did Your Google Analytics Data Disappear?

jan-22-analytics-data-goneA short time ago, I logged into my Google Analytics account to see that my traffic to Microblogger was ZERO for January 22nd, 2013.


I’m certain people visited, I make it a point to review traffic periodically during the day, so what happened to the data?

I hadn’t made any changes to the code. I was logged in properly and looking at the right site.

I checked other accounts I had and they all had Jan 22nd data.

So what gives? Where did Jan 22nd’s data go?

Short answer? It’s there, Google Analytics is just confused. Don’t panic.

The long answer? I have no idea and no one knows.

I searched online and it was just a lot of people panicking, lots of Google Forum posts that were largely ignored by Google, and wild guesses.

If this happened to you, I’m happy to report it’s a hiccup. At around 9 in the morning, the data was missing. By around 3 that afternoon, the data was back.

Don’t panic! 🙂

    Hmmm. That’s odd. I’ve never seen that. But at least now I’ll know not to worry if I do. 🙂

  2. Been there! Google hates me. 🙂

    Already panicked. It happened a month or so ago as well. I feel a lot better now. It has helped my addiction with checking analytics. I’m probably a healthier person checking less often:)
