Date is not appearing correctly in new analytics

  • Hi there RankMath team.

    With the new update I’m really excited about the potential of pro coming out. Good work! However, with my update there seems to be some issues.

    The first issue we discovered was that the auto fetching the data did not work. I needed to manually fetch. Okay no big deal. Then when it finally did fetch the data seems to be misrepresented. It stated for example that I had 19 keywords in the top 3 positions, but then when I hovered over the graph, there was only 1. And at the bottom of the page “REst of keywords” were only showing two. Then to make things weirder the total keywords under SEO performance was 1.
    We tried a bunch of different purging and caching, and nothing worked. Now also my Search traffic does not show up and is not representing the stats on my actual google analytics page.

  • I’m continuing on in this discussion even though I have not heard a response. There was a comment on my first report of this issue on github mentioning that there might be a conflict with another previous google analytics js might on the site. gtag.js, or googleanalytics.js After using a google analytics debugger, I confirm that there is indeed another tracking code. However I have checked all of my plug-ins and theme and cannot discover where it is coming from.

    I also have received php errors in logs everyday:

    Thank you for contacting the support and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    We went ahead and did these things:
    1. Replaced the plugin files with the following version: (this is yet to be released but includes improvements for the Analytics module)

    2. Disconnected your Google conenctions.

    3. Deleted all the older Analytics data from Rank Math, so, you will need to fetch the fresh data.

    4. Rebuilt your posts index for Rank Math by using the following option:
    reindex posts for rank math

    5. Then we checked the error log and noticed that the errors are from 23rd June and are not latest. But the error log might have updated.

    6. Please reconnect your Google account again with the Rank Math plugin and fetch the data.

    Also, for the future, we recommend to use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    With that said, if your Analytics is already receiving the data even before you updated the Rank Math plugin, we recommend to avoid installing the Google Analytics code using the Rank Math plugin. That will mess your Analytics data up. You can only connect your account and fetch the data.

    Please let us know if that helps. We are here to assist.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Thanks so much. The site is currently fetching data. I have not clicked the “install analytics code” button. I will update on what data comes through.

    I have also updated the sensitive data for a URL login.

    I will monitor the PHP error log. Thanks.

    Thanks for your help,


    Sure. Please keep us informed about the status of the disconnection.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Fetching complete.
    Unfortunately, data still seems to be quite off.
    Search traffic is 0, and total keywords is only 1 which does match the “keyword positions graph saying that I have 20 in the top 3.


    The Analytics module might not be returning any value because we have hit the allowed API limit due to the sheer number of users using the latest version.

    Google allows applying for an increase in the quota limit only when someone hits at least an 80% API limit, which happened after we released the final version and everyone started to mass-import their data.

    With that said, we have applied for an increase in the quota limit and as soon as that happens, the Google Analytics part will start working again.

    Hope that clears the confusion with the mismatch in the data.

    Please allow us some time while we get this sorted with Google.

    We will make an announcement once that issue is fixed.

    Thank you.

    Cool sounds good. Thanks for your help


    Glad that helped and appreciate your understanding.

    Please feel free to reach out to us again if you need any other assistance.

    We are here to help.
