    First of all I will show you the pic of what I saw on google webmaster tools. (its german, but you know what it means)

    The rankings are stable (going up), but the traffic is going down a lot.

    Don't search people for these keywords anymore? How is it possible that it dropped so much during 5 days?
    Is there anything I can do?

    You should really not take GMT literally, most of the time their stats are completely fucked up. And I mean it because I've seen MANY times websites "ranking" number 1 for "beauty" or "health" on GMT, but in reality they were nowhere to be found.

    My suggestion is to either use your own proxies and a scraper to fetch the results or to go with a reliable service.

    I think this has something to do with rankings not being the same from different IPs as traffic should otherwise be steady.

    In that case, and it shows up by doing an actual search in google.com/ncr then you might want to work on your meta descriptions and perhaps implement your author bios so you get the picture of their face showing on the left side. It drastically increases clicks to your site.

    Can't help you much more without more info, just give it sometime and see how it does after 10 days.

    One answer might be that your keyword you're targeting is season related, or viral keyword and the interest is falling down so do the number of searches and the impressions.
