Google Webmaster ToolsThere are hundreds of webmasters complaining and worried that their structured data is messed up, because Google Webmaster Tools seems to have a bug where the reports show a massive decline in the number of structured data elements a site had compared to the previous day.

Google Structured Data Reporting Shows Massive Declines

I am not the only one with the issue, there are tons of reports of this issue. We have many threads at Google Webmaster Help and one at Moz (thanks Keri) and a bunch of reports on Twitter.

Update: This was fixed today.
