    (Not Provided) and now no GWT search data!?
    Between Hummingbird and then taking away all keyword referral data last week, Google's been busy. But is anyone else now seeing all search query data completely taken away in Webmaster Tools as well?

    If you haven't, check your GWT for the last 3 days or so. I'm not seeing any search query information there now.

    I guess it's not that big of a deal considering those results were pretty inaccurate anyways, Google never told us how they were being generated, and the fact that there's TONS of ways to actually perform a search now that would throw off the results.

    Been saying for years that the data in GWT was not accurate. Never seemed to match up with our own analytics. No longer use it as a barometer for anything - no trust...

    In case anyone is interested, looks like GWT's withholding of search queries is actually a bug, not a planned move.
