This is one of those “I’m writing this because it will be useful for someone else when they really need it” posts. The other day, Google Analytics stopped logging traffic to “Have I been pwned?”:
The thing had launched with a bang and everything was awesome then… nothing. Heaps of data for Dec 5 (the first full launch day) through 7 then absolutely nothing for the 8th and the day I took the image on the 9th. Odd thing was, I’d just seen the stats during the day on the 8th and when looking at things on an hourly basis, everything was just fine so where had the data gone?! Whilst this image is from the AnlyticsPro iOS app, it was the same deal when opening the Analytics website.
This is a disconcerting feeling because you begin thinking you’ve lost data. Did I inadvertently delete or purge the account? Did I screw up the tracking tags? Is my account locked out?
