    This is what happened to one of my sites:


    As you can see, something happened on August 23 (organic traffic in orange). It looks like a Google penalty, but there's nothing in Google Webmasters Tools about it. My backlinking profile is good, since it's all natural with no spammy or commercial links.

    The site is about music and all content is legit and good quality. There was a design change by that time, but just CSS, so I have no idea what caused the traffic change. I still need to take a look at the index rate, since it looks weird:


    It says there was no pages indexed before September 8, but I was having more than 500 visits daily before. Any suggestions?

    Thank you
