Google Search Console has yet another reporting bug, this one is with the Google News performance report. The data between May 12, 2022 and May 26, 2022 may show a drop due to a logging error. Google said there was no real drop in Google Search even if the reports showed one.
Google wrote “Because of a logging error, site owners might see a drop in their Google News data during this period. This is just a logging error and not a real drop in Google News performance.”
So if you see this, you should also see this annotation linking to this notice in the Google Search Console report. Here is a chart from one of my sites (not this one) that shows the annotation:
I guess by now most of you now how to handle these data issues in Google Search Console?
