Google Analytics suffers downtime on 02/11/2010

If you are a fan of Twitter and you are interested in SEO news, there's nothing bigger than Google suffering problems in every country across the globe, hence the phrase #Google Analytics trending worldwide on
If you were looking for your website stats on the morning of November the 3rd no doubt your jaw would have hit the floor and had you running to the nearest SEO forum to find answers.

We are continuing to investigate this issue. We will provide an update by November 6, 2010 12:00:00 AM UTC detailing when we expect to resolve the problem.
Starting Oct 25th, a 24hr delay with processing in sampled reports was identified in some accounts. No data has been lost and a fix is in progress.

The whole world seemed to stop for a few hours - ten years ago less than 5% of all posts on the internet on this subject would have been read - Google trending has thrown itself into it's own vat of boiling oil.

For some ecommerce sites this was unaccepteble, for others it was a cause for hilarity, but for everyone all data was restored by 12noon GMT and suddenly, the world started to turn again.
