For some unknown reasons, my website is losing all traffic from video search results (since 2023 early December). Anyone has any idea what is happening? Are you guys facing the some situation?

Plus I clicked the little number that marks a Google update notice and the update was not related to any video search.
 
Google frequently updates its algorithms, which can impact video rankings.

The competitive landscape is always changing, so new content from competitors might be affecting your visibility. Based on my experience, conducting a thorough audit of your video SEO strategy and making necessary adjustments can help in regaining lost traffic.
 
When my site had not yet received a penalty in 2022, I remember I had the same thing and it depended on whether you performed all these stinking web vitals. When I fell into the yellow zone in terms of site speed, the video traffic disappeared.
 
They just removed websites on video section and put youtube for more bank $$

Thanks for reminding me. It is kind of weird that it suddenly dropped to zero, so I didn't put it as a regular competition. May I ask how would you do a video SEO audit? I am focusing on blog SEO, and those videos are embedded in the blogs. Normally, they just keep bringing video search traffic as a result. I know how to do on-page and off-page blog SEO but have no idea what I can do with this video search issue. Any ideas about what should I look into? Thanks in advance.

I checked the core vital data and it looks good. Thanks for the reminder, will keep an eye on this.

I try to search on Google and yes there are not many web pages shown on video search now. Most of them are from YouTube. Didn't pay attention to this before but if many of us are facing this steep drop, might be Google removing them.
 
Thanks. This might be a dumb question, I am not good at tech SEO. How can I check if my site is hacked?
1 go to google and search site:yoursitename.com and check if its sowing smeting fishy, casio pages, something thats you not posted in your site etc
2 go to cpanel and to the file explorer to the folder of the site, sort by date and open recent files and check if you fins anything suspicious, also check you .htaccess file.
3 if you cant do 2 install plugin wordfence and run a malware scan.

Yes. i agree with you.

Also the audit for your video is a good tip.
 
This is not about your website or videos this about google update do not listen them and waste your time.. You can't do anything about this they are probably do not have any website if they dont know this.

your website is killed by google, here's my stats

looks familiar? that's google killing my site, a google employee probably delisted your entire site or may be an automated algorithm flagged your site as spam

and what's worse is google wont alert you with anything, no emails sent and my manual actions tab is empty, you're better off making a new one at this point which I did and is ranking well today, I'm not so sure about how long this will last, I'm focusing on getting social media traffic rather than google
 
Is your hosting service live? Maybe your site was hit by a malicious virus. Install the Wordfence plugin if you are operating your site using WordPress.
