Google Webmaster SEO ReportEarlier this week, we reported about widespread reports of mass impression drops within Google Webmaster Tools. It was so widespread that it had to be a Google bug.

The weird part was, no Google response. Nothing from them saying, we know, we are working on it. Google's reports within Webmaster Tools often has issues and slowness. So I was not alarmed.

But since it has been going on for a while, I decided to email Google to find out what is up.

Google said it should be back to normal within a few days. A Google spokesperson told me:

It should be caught up again soon -- hopefully in a few days.

So hang tight, the reports should be back to normal shortly.

Forum discussion continued at Google Webmaster Help and WebmasterWorld.

It's fixed. It was related to an internal Google.. thing... and that has now finished.

As a Google PPC ninja once told me, it is important to constantly split-test new ads so that messaging is consistently being refined in a competitive marketplace. That happens on at least two levels: 1) The ads themselves, inside Adwords. It has easy split testing for ads and reports optimal performance. 2) On your landing page itself. That's where a lot of people miss the boat on conversions. They blame the ads but don't split test elements or versions of their landing pages. There are lots of ways to do this, but it's kind of technical and as a business owner I couldn't really be bothered with learning the details, but I can refer you to Simon. Call him - 219-733-4687.
