    Hi,

    I created a website few month ago.

    I optimized my internal links and succeeded in generating backlinks (comments, directories and guest posts). My traffic was growing up, and the seasonality of the keywords I target has come. But last month, my traffic was flat, or even decreasing a little bit (whereas it was suppose to grow because of the seasonality according to Adwords !).

    That's why I wonder why my trafic is flat and the only reason I've found is that I might be due to a Google penalty or sandbox.

    But in search console, there is no "manual actions" against my website ... And my website remains positionned on first page for several keywords.

    Is it possible that one of my competitors reported me ? How could I know that ?

    Thank you for your help!
