Google Local / Places Analytics Broken

Google Places LogoFor the past week or so, there have been complaints in the Google Places Help forum about the analytics on the Google Places Dashboard not loading.

Jade from Google said yesterday that the issue was resolved but is it? She wrote:

Dashboard analytics should be back by now. Thanks for your patience!

When I go check out my analytics for my Google Place page, I see spinning wheels:

Google Places Analytics Dead

Here is a screen shot on how it really should look.

Does yours work?

Really Barry...these two circles are revolving continuously as if some annoying thing is going on. And its irritating, you don't expect such problems from Google at least.

It is typical of Google Maps.

may be.. but I am facing it first time.. Google should double check it before committing that it has been resolved.

Someday, someone, will write a book on the real inside story of Google Local, and even we, who it would be difficult to shock no matter how chaotic we think it is there, will be in fact flabbergasted at the amazing incompetency of this area of Google. Just another day for the Google local group.

If it's worth anything I just checked my clients and all looks fine now.. I'm in Aus.

This is pretty normal, I'd say the dashboard is fully functional about 50% of the time in my experience. As long as the +local page is showing in search, and all the reviews haven't disappeared I count it as a good day in places.

Ha, thanks for making this comment. I thought I was the only one who is extremely frustrated with Google Local and its hundreds of problems. I almost don't want to sell the service of setting it up for people because of all its glitches.
