Google is currently investigating a reporting issue or bug with the Google Search Console experience and enhancement reports. The issue is that they seem to be showing a decline in the number of valid reported URLs across the core web vitals, HTTPS, AMP, mobile usability and other page experience other enhancement reports.

Google said "the team has been looking into this and is working to resolve it. This is a Search Console reporting issue, and not related to indexing or ranking."

John Mueller from Google said on X, "Richard and Brody reported it earlier, we're looking into it." Adding a clarification saying that, ""looking into it" is about as official as we have at the moment. We could add a side of "don't panic (yet)" though."

Google's official Search Central account posted shortly after, "Thanks for reporting this, @brodieseo, @RedCardinal & @PedroDias. The team has been looking into this and is working to resolve it. This is a Search Console reporting issue, and not related to indexing or ranking."

Here is what it looks like for some of the reports:

So if you see this, do not panic - Google is working on fixing the reporting issue.

This should have zero impact on your ranking in Google Search today.

Forum discussion at X.

Update: Google has fixed the issue on Thursday, November 23rd:

Google posted on the data anomalies page a message on November 17, 2023 saying, "The number of items reported here dropped due to a temporary reporting issue. This issue has since been resolved and the numbers will return in the near future."
