Google Updated Indexing Report in Search Console After Two Weeks Crash
Webmasters noticed that Google has updated the indexing report data in the Search Console.
On September 15, data for September 13 was available in the report, such a delay of a couple of days is the norm for this report:
Note that the report has not been updated for two weeks. The Google Webmasters team officially confirmed the issue on Twitter on September 14:
We're currently experiencing longer than usual delays in the Search Console Index Coverage report. This only affects reporting, not crawling, indexing, or ranking of websites. We'll update here once this issue is resolved. Thanks for your patience!— Google Search Central (@googlesearchc) September 14, 2020
Google Webmasters have promised to announce when the problem will be fixed, but so far no information has been reported.
At the same time, a note about this situation appeared on the Data Anomalies page in Search Console. It states that the failure has been observed since September 1:
The crash was reportedly caused by an internal system error that delayed the processing of index data. No information was lost, and after processing is complete, the report will display the correct data.
On this page, the problem is still marked as "ongoing". Google may not have updated this information yet, or the problem may not be fully resolved yet.
