Why does Google Search Console shows data two days prior?

+1
−0

Generally, Google Search Console (GSC) shows me data about my website from two days before.

I can understand a scenario were data about just one day before is given:
The day in which we check the GSC overview is yet to over, so we get data about yesterday;
But,
I don't understand the current situation in which the data is from two days before.

I didn't find any documentation about this particular matter in GSC docs (I might have missed something).

If you have any reasonable explanation for this please share it.

TL;DR TANSTAAFL

Google is in business. They give a lot of stuff away for free. But much of that is in order to get things that people pay for, either directly (paid accounts for G Suite or whatever they call it these days and other products) or indirectly (ad revenue).

A logical result of that is to have the free versions of certain products, such as Google Search Console, have some delays. A day or two of built-in delays means that:

  • Reading web pages to gather the source information can be done on a variable schedule depending on availability of servers
  • Post-processing can be done by servers during otherwise idle time (many servers are far more heavily used in some parts of the day and some days of the week than others)
  • Data that needs to be moved from processing servers to distributed storage for access can be moved when the most bandwidth and/or server power is available

I would not be surprised if Google has a premium (not free) product that includes a much faster and more frequent read/process/report cycle.
