The numbers are starting to come in now, but still delayed... so curious to know what happened!

Wait for a while for all servers to sync. Data reporting is not in real-time.

Mosh, that has nothing to do with this issue. I'm a veteran adwords user and I've never seen clicks reported without impressions. Are you saying that you have? If not I'm not sure why you replied. I'm betting it was a glitch we'll never know about.

I also wrote a thread about when I received many clicks with zero impressions.

 

There is also an article about such statistics :

Ohh... I see that Adrian was fast to link the article. And as for your question, had I not seen CTR above 100 I would have not replied.

Thanks for the reply Moshe. Hi Adrian, thanks!... please link your thread as well if you can find it Smiley Happy This happened on both Display and Search accounts. I'm fairly certain, as I was from the beginning, that there was a delay in reporting impressions, but typically BOTH imps and clicks are delayed equally. By nature I want to dig into details that will never be answered on these forums Smiley Happy

This is my experience

 

https://www.en.adwords-community.com/t5/Measure-results/1-click-and-0-impressions/m-p/169836/highlig...

 

and here without a print-screen I tried to figure out what happens with 18 clicks for 3 impressions, it turns out they were invalid.

Old thread, but it came up in my search.

I have seen CTR above 100%, but I have (for a particular -recent - hour) six clicks and zero impressions so infinite CTR.  I suspect something has gone wrong after a domain renewal (and DNS update).  Hopefully it will calm down tomorrow.
