    after recieving an email from adsense that i violate their policies by having bad navigation (mostly because i placed A LOT ofadsense instead of menu items), i decided to redesign the site.
    So i did. it looks way better now.
    but the problem is that my SERPS went really down.
    A few days ago i was having 4000+ unique visotrs.
    Today its 500 =(
    The links have not changed, the content stayed the same too.
    What should i do?

    IS the new design cached in google already or not?

    If it is cached already then the changes in design flow caused your serps to drop. lost meta tags or h1 / h2 or images alt tags and any other on-page seo tags etc...

    If it is still not cached then the design change is not the reason for traffic drop.
