    Actually I failed to get answers from anywhere...can creating 53k tests + city pages be reason of this downfall ? I mean they were kind of very thin content pages.

    Tnx

    When I looked at the site, that did cross my mind, thin content/duplicate content.

    Search Console should tell you more.

    That's obviously duplicate content mate. Sooner or later Panda will knock on your door.

    Yaa we had created 53k pages with combination of test + city pages...just updating meta titles and tags of these pages.
    I literary need some help.
    My idea was simple...i wanted to update all meta and then use indexers to index all the pages once the meta tags are updated.

    Tnx

    Your content has duplicates.

    But I think drop in crawl rate is fine if your content is not updated often.

    Did you try to use RSS pings to increase your crawl rate using syndication networks?

    Mate, I just took a look at your search console dashboard as you requested. You have a manual action and several errors that need to be addressed, also 2 sitemap errors.
    Basically every section of search console has one error or another, you need to go through each section and fix the errors then put in a reconsideration request.
    Get rid of any duplicate content.
    Also Page Speed Insights shows some things you need to take care of:

    You should set your preferred domain. Why did you limit the crawl rate?

    Tnx mate...
    found the reason why traffic is going down.
    lalpathlabs.com/login.aspx page traffic has suddenly dropped from 3-4k to 2-3 visits...now its not even showing in search results...i got it submitted to webmasters tool but it showed once.
    again today i see that its not live on google.
    Website bounce rate have increased from 7-8% to 20-30% ...client is really pissed off from us.

    Did you fix all the errors in search console and put in a reconsideration request for the manual action?

    Of course he is pissed. You're doing shit with his site. Applying 2003's strategies to your site will get you nowhere mate.
    Beside hacked site, you'll get hit sooner or later by their algorithm for having low quality / duplicate content.

    I just checked in search console for you and they removed the manual action, but you still have a few errors to take care of.

    It is login page (https://www.lalpathlabs.com/login.aspx ) and hence never created any backlinks for it.
