Update 3/13 3:30 (our lucky day): Google has noted that hours are back to normal.
Colan Nielsen of Imprezzio Marketing just noticed that Google has limited the hours of their phone support due to high call volumes:
Our call centers have recently experienced high support volume and our GMB specialists are working hard to solve existing queries. As a result, we are currently offering phone support on a limited basis only during the hours of 7 AM – 12 PM PST, Monday – Friday.
It is not clear to me if this is being caused by a general increase in usage or perhaps some nee problems.
Regardless it will cause problems for some and forwarned is forarmed. for those that are time challenged like me that’s 10 AM – 3 PM ON THE East Coast.
