As posted in article by PC World, even Google can make errors on occasion. In this case, some statistics for users of Google Business Center were sent to incorrect Business Center users. This included information such as how often the business had appeared in listings, how many times the business was clicked and follow-through clicks on the business site itself.
This error was found to have been by human mistake, not an error directly with any of Google’s systems. Google was on top of it and corrected it quickly. They published a written statement to acknowledge the error and that when they discovered it, said they paused all emails to Business Center users until they could determine the cause of the issue.
