    I was getting around 6k UV's daily [search engine traffic mostly from google] and suddenly my traffic dropped 6 times
    Now getting around 1k UV's daily
    i have checked if site is de-indexed, but it was not the case

    [​IMG]

    I waited for a while i thought i may regain my traffic but i think it will not come back
    It was my blog post that was ranked for 40k exact match, it was dancing on top 3 positions,
    Now i have checked that specific page and it has literary disappeared from search engines
    The rest of pages from my site are ranked as they were

    I have checked that specific page for any spam backlinks but could not find, i was using free tools that are floating on internet

    Any clues?

    I think the Blog Page was banned from Google Search engine due to one of these factors: black SEO, send the page to be indexed in free directories via web (some of them damage the ranking), someone reported the page to Google (jokes etc, content) and Google banned it...

    I was going to say this :)

    @OP: You must have to keep feeding your site with fresh content to get it active and updated in the eyes of Google.

    Dropping traffic count can't be blamed entirely on Google or some bad SEOs.

    Check your SEO factors first, they are the easiest. Is your site indexed? How people came to your site at the first place? Are you still ranking for those keywords?

    After SEO factor, there are a lot of other factors. The most problematic is your own content. Is your content good enough? The quality of the content somehow can increase or decrease your traffic. If you continually show great content to your loyal visitors, there should be no drop in traffic. Again, a drop in traffic may also indicate that people are actually leaving your site, because they are unhappy for your site.

    In Internet Marketing business, there are lots of factors beside SEO.

    It is said that google gives anybody chance by showing resource for some time and then measures its efficiency and users response. After that trial period it makes decision if site deserves to be on top or need to be demoted and your case it looks like second option prevailed.

    This can be the case, this highly competitive keyword was directly effecting MGID niche, and they conteacted me saying i should partner with them on 14th Nov, i humbly denied, i think they might have reported my page,
    Though i think i got most of it, it was not that kind of page with HQ content,

    if you were affecting their keyword, i'm pretty sure they had something to do with it. not one of the 'cleanest' players in the game.

    You can submit a reconsideration request to Google through webmasters tools, I've seen it go well before and they go and manually fix it. Only do this if you haven't built spam backlinks on it (which you say you haven't)
