We too have been experiencing similar problem since midnight, sudden drop in traffic, mostly from AMP.  Unable to figure out what the issue is?  Articles are continuing to rank well but drastic drop in traffic.  

Need help on how to address this?

It should be a tracking issue. We have Ads on AMP only - impressions there are normal, but traffic inside GA for AMP dropped at around 7pm EST for us yesterday. Live traffic inside GA shows no AMP pages being called - we usually have about 50% amp traffic, more than 70 000 page views per day.

I am 95% sure this is a GA tracking issue. Your rankings and actual amp traffic should not be effected in reality.

Anybody from Google here to confirm this glitch?

For me too, the Ad impressions and ad revenues are normal for 26th April despite significant drop in traffic in the last 12 hours of the day.  Will get a better picture about it today.

Can you send me analytics code (obviously without your GA ID)?

Do you guys have this inside the code?:

id="analytics1"

If so, I think this may be the issue. Should just be:

<amp-analytics type="googleanalytics">
<script type="application/json">
{
  "vars": {
    "account": "UA-XXXX
  },
  "triggers": {
    "trackPageview": {
      "on": "visible",
      "request": "pageview"
    }
  }
}
</script>
</amp-analytics>

Cheers,
Sebastian

We do have the GA code on AMP pages:

<amp-analytics type="googleanalytics" id="googleanalytics">
        <script type="application/json">
        {
"vars": {
"account": "UA-XXXXXX-1"  
},
"triggers": {
"trackPageviewWithAmpdocUrl": {  
"on": "visible",
"request": "pageview",
"vars": {
"title": "article title",
}
}
}
        }
        </script>
    </amp-analytics>

Did this error return? Our AMP traffic dropped again significantly (50%) on May 17. But our revenue is totally unchanged which doesn't compute. If our traffic dropped that much, we would absolutely see a correlated drop in revenue. When the error happened back at the end of April that opened this thread, we had the same result: revenue unchanged. That's what gave me the hunch back then that this was a reporting error back then and what leads me to believe/hope it's a reporting error again.

Thanks!
