If your Google search results are seeming a bit stale today, you're not alone.

Google announced early Thursday morning that it was experiencing indexing issues on its search service, which affects new content from appearing in search results.

Similar indexing issues plagued the search giant earlier this year, as one in particular in April lasted for nearly an entire week.

Google said the issue impacted "some sites," though it did specify further on the scale of the problem.

At the time of writing this article, searching the name of major publications like the Washington Post and New York Times in Google News, the freshest articles returned are at least four hours old.

Some, on the first page of results, are from the prior day.
