    I just lost 18% organic traffic , And its sudden
    I try to track lost keyword from semrush , but Semrush reveals
    previous position of all lost keyword was above 30 in google And present position is now 0 .

    how that's possible .... its very rare to get traffic from fourth page of Google

    Can anyone Suggest any other Technique or Tool to detect lost keyword So i can recover

    It could be Google dance. Wait for few days to settle down and then take any action.

    If you were keeping track of your top keywords in GWT it would be as easy as comparing today to what it was say a month ago. But you don't really need to know what keyword right now, you need to know what pages did you lose traffic on. You most likely got hit on a specific page or two. As long as those pages are still indexed it seems to indicate they have an algorithmic penalty if that page lost all its rankings. Google likes to hit pages individually now but if that is the case you can still build new pages on your site and re-rank for the lost keywords.

    May be your competitors will rank that same keywords as their SEO updates. So you have to start find them & break it with your own way SEO.

    Semrush is slow in updating and usually outdated. Get your ranking keywords from semrush, and add them to rank trackers to track them daily.

    No. That is way too long. Dance is temporary.

    Possibly a Google dance? They like to tweak the algo once in a while and it causes a twitch and tweark every now and then. Then there's also the year-end tweak on their algo in order to cater the year-end holiday shopping season.

    Google Dance only.Don't worry and also some times semrush will update in a slow manner. your position will come back again.And do more social bookmark sharing, it will help you to get more traffic.
