Google Webmaster Tools Reporting Stalled

Google Webmaster ToolsMany many webmasters are complaining in the Google Webmaster Help forums that the reporting in Google Webmaster Tools specifically for the "Crawl Errors" section is stalled, delayed and not updating.

I personally see it updated as of April 23rd, which was 15 days ago! Others are saying April 25th, but many also only see data up to April 23rd. Crawl error reports are probably one of the more important reporting features in Google Webmaster Tools, so to not have an updated report on those errors can be scary for many obsessed webmasters.

Here is a screen shot of my report:

Google Webmaster Tools Crawl Error Reports Delayed

Google has not yet responded to the concerns of webmasters about this report.

Personally, I suspect there will be a fix soon and things will calm down a bit. I should note, reporting errors and slowness in Google Webmaster Tools is nothing new.

I have the same and it is still not fixed, so I removed my sites from it. It has also influence on the index

Even The Links, which i have managed to remove from the others sites, one year ago is still showing in the webmasters tools. Its too too slow.. If the links which are removed from the sites goes out of the webmasters as well, i think it would be a good help.

I had no crawl errors updated for nearly two weeks. Today, it was finally updated.

I experienced crawl errors (several of them) but that was solved without my interaction. Sincen then, I experienced a loss in traffic!

I also got few error messages "Increase in authorization permission errors" & "Big traffic change for top URL" After this my top pages of with www. versions are deindexed & major loss in traffic & ranking.
