Google Analytics Skip Updating Last Night? Nope

This morning I checked my Google Analytics for dozens of sites and noticed that the reports are missing yesterday's statistics. The March 10, 2008 data are missing from all my reports.

Is Google Analytics lagged? Did they have some sort of hiccup?

A Google Groups thread has other Google Analytics users complaining this morning, but then I saw this post:

I had panicked when I saw this too, but the numbers are still in the report, they are just not being displayed in the graph. If you highlight yesterday's date you can see the numbers below the graph.

It is true, while the visitors graph seems a day behind, if you change the date in the date drop down to today, it will actually show the correct stats in the detailed reports.

There are also many people complaining about it on Twitter including Scott and Brian.

I wonder when the visual reporting will be fixed?

No, it looks to me like the data is way off too. Its showing me that I had about 1300 visitors, but 2700 visitors from search engines? The numbers are way off too, not just the graphs.

March 12th and still no data for yesterday or the day before for 50+ sites. Still no official word from Google - who do they think they are? What kind of management have they got there now that appears to have stuck it's head in the sand or up there own a...

It's a free service to entice you to use or spend more on AdWords... I don't think it's realistic to respect reliability and responsibility which you'd get from 5- or 6-figure web analytics solutions. Then again, the lack of news from Google pretty much shows its arrogance at this point.

My Google Analytics data has been a day behind since March 8th. My guess is it has something to do with daylight savings. Or maybe it's a big coincidence.
