If the bug impacts you, you’ll see either no or incorrect data when checking your Ads and Analytics reports.
Here’s an example shared by Baruch Labunski, the CEO of Ranksecure:

In response to his question regarding when the issue will clear up, Marvin says there’s no current update on the timing.
However, you can monitor the problem using the Google Ads status dashboard.
At the time of this article’s publishing, there were service disruptions reported for the following services:
- Google Ad Manager
- Display & Video 360
- Google Ads
- Google Analytics
- Search Ads 360
Full details of the disruption aren’t known, though it appears to be limited to reporting.
That means Google Ads campaigns are still running; the data collection is disrupted.
We’ll update this article when Google shares further details.
A Day Of Google Bugs
July 15 marks a rare occurrence of simultaneous Google bugs.
In addition to the bug affecting Google Ads & Analytics reporting, an ongoing issue with Google’s Search impacts the indexing of new content.
We’re still awaiting a resolution for both issues; an update from Google is expected soon.
