I noticed today that GA shows traffic 0 for all of my sites for yesterday (jan 11.07) in the following hours - 3PM and 4PM UK time. I checked server logs and didn't noticed any errors.Moreover we would notice any problem with the sites for we are working all time with them. Don't know where the problem is.Hope it is Google Analytics having a temporary problem. Today all is fine for now.If anyone has any idea please share.Thank you.

Something very similar happened to me too, and it does from time to time.

Usually the data that went AWOL turns up ~48hrs later, where it has presumably being waiting patiently for the CPU time to catch up on processing.

I have experinced that as well.This time it is different.It includes only 2 hours of the day, whereas in the previous cases I have been missing a whole day of data. I dont like this thing for it's messing with my work. Two hours of heavy traffic are missing. Alas i can't ask so much from a free service in the end...Thank you Google :

I thought my site may have been down for 2 hours yesterday.

Glad to see other reports that it's an analytics bug.

Hello again,

I have to add this.Today (Monday 15 jan 2007) i found out the traffic missing - the 2 hours of traffic for 11 jan is back. So it comes out that it's really been there somewhere waiting for its time to cime. What comes out of this in the end- G Analytics is actually doing its job even if it is late sometimes :)

Yes, indeed, that has been my experience.

I was worried enough to mail G support a couple of times, but now I just chill and wait a day or so!

On another note...I use GA and AWStats and AWStats is down all the time. This didn't happen when my site first went live in May '06, but since Oct it is getting worse and worse. Now it only updates about once a week. But all the data is there when it does finally update. But meanwhile, I can't view anything except GA which I'm thankful they provide. When I send a trouble ticket to my host, they say just wait 48 hours, but it takes lots longer. Anyone else have this problem with AWStats?
