I've been patiently waiting to share data since launching our app with app indexing but the data within the Google Search Console has stopped updating on November 3rd. This is not that uncommon, Google often has periods of time where the analytics data and other data within the Google Search Console gets stuck - this is just one of those times.

It will catch up, but we are now almost a week behind.

Here is the data I have to show you for my app thus far, yea not much:

Google Search Console Data Delay

As you can see, the latest data is November 3rd.

We have a largish thread at the Google Webmaster Help forums with webmasters not happy about the delay. A Google Top Contributor, who has seen this happen time and time again, said "I would imagine that in a couple of days it will start to catch up, but google is on its own schedule for updating the report, so no guess when. No data should be lost during the wait for updates." He is correct.

John Mueller responded to questions about it as well on Twitter:

I am not sure if it is not Gary Illye's fault, but John is implying it is not. ;-P

Be patient, the data will funnel in soon.

Forum discussion at Google Webmaster Help.

Update: The data is now catching up.
