Google Delay

It is now 16 days and counting since the Google Search Console Coverage report has been updated. Two-weeks later than the normal two-day delay and there is no end in sight. I've been seeing complaints pointed at Google's John Mueller on Twitter with zero response.

I mean, Google is aware of the issue, they intentionally paused the reports because of the indexing issues that were supposedly fixed. But that was fixed 12 days ago and the reporting is still not working in Google Search Console.

The reports stop at April 7, 2019 when you check them. I check daily to see if the reports will be updated:

Here is the announcement about the issue from April 15th:

Here are more complaints today:

The folks are getting restless. I have to imagine this will be resolved soon, at least I keep saying that. Last week I asked Google how much longer and then John Mueller said:

I don't know. At this point I'm afraid to make any predictions. I hope that this is something that will be resolved fairly quickly but sometimes these things take take a lot longer than we expect. But it is definitely something that we're taking fairly seriously and making sure that when it's resolved that it's really resolved and that we can notify folks when when we think that either we we have a clearer timeline or we we've been able to resolve it. So I wouldn't assume like hours but I think weeks would also be too long. So somewhere in the area of you know days. It's really hard to say.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Update: John posted saying they are working on it...
