Many Webmasters on WebmasterWorld are reporting technical errors in Google Analytics.

One user, lruellan eloquently wrote to Google Analytics explaining and describing the technical errors as:

"Two weeks ago, I noticed a significant drop in GA's reported visits, not reflected in Webtrends. While GA used to show about 2k visits less than Webtrends, suddenly, it was reporting over 12k less visits for the same days. After a few days, the issue resolved itself, and Google came back to matching Webtrends in the > 95% range. Then, yesterday, Google shows a huge drop again, with the number of visits being half of what's in Webtrends (18k visits in GA, 32k in Webtrends)."

In response, the Google Analytics team has a blog where they write:

“There is a temporary reporting delay within Google Analytics accounts. For most accounts, reporting is current through this past Saturday night. Please note that no data will be lost – data will continue to be collected and processed during this time.

We are in the process of fully updating your Google Analytics account data and will display it within your reports as soon as possible. Please note, you are still able to log in to your accounts and access all the data through Saturday. We will update this blog when reporting is fully restored.We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in reporting has caused. Thank you for using Google Analytics.”
