    Hi, I have recently started a new TV-show site, didnt built any links or did any seo, but google traffic was steadily increasing and one day... BAM.. (look at screenshot):

    Is this a so called "google dance" ? Site is still in index and all posts are indexed, but traffic has dropped from 6k/day to ~250/day. Is this normal? Can I hope that my rankings and traffic will return? Should I do any SEO now ?

    I am experiencing the same problem. Exactly the same with almost the same figures :)
    I am sure our projects will come back. I decided to take a PRO SEO service from FuryKyle. We can't wait for bigger results if we don't action.

    Anyway, continue the work, never stop.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    If you suddenly stopped adding new posts, that might explain it. Other than that it's most likely a dance. I can't tell you for sure as it might also be a manual slap if your site is horrible/has something to drive users away.
