    Hi there everyone, i'd like to ask a question i dont know if this is the appropriate place to do this.

    These days i had a sudden drop in my traffic almost half of what i usually had. I'll post some pictures below so you can help me out maybe.

    Here is a picture of my webmaster tools (I had an increase on my crawl rate, which so far was good in general because when Big G is investing crawl resources is in general a good thing and in the past i had traffic increase along with it)

    Strange Fact
    At 02/10/2015 on my webmaster tools i had "1590" clicks while on google analytics the same day i had 6200 sessions

    SEO Facts
    Link Building: I've done it occasionaly so i dont know if this has affect it or something
    Penalty: No Penalty found at "Manual Actions" maybe its an aglorithm penalty?
    Onpage changes: I've done some changes like on the (url, title and some other minnor changes) For the url i used 301 redirect (changed my site to https recently too)

    Thats all about it, can someone tell me whats going on or help how can i fix this problem?

    Has there been a drop in the number of pages you have indexed?

    If its not this, then you have lost rankings somewhere. Do you track your keywords at all?

    You can lose your rankings due to many factors, including loss of some existing links.

    Thanks a lot!! for your responses.

    I dont track all my keywords but i track some of them and their rankings and they behave normal, still the same rank.

    At 06/09/2015 i had the max indexed pages 548935 pages after that they dropped to yesterday report (04/10/2015) 510303 thats about 38k pages loss.

    I may have messed something in my databases and destroyed some pages, but these pages were not much important and they didnt bring traffic.
    There is any chance that Google saw these "destroyed pages" and droped my ranking? something like my site's consistency?

    It's not just you. There is another thread on the front page where many other people are experiencing this same thing. Apparently google is suffling some things around and the stats of a lot of website owners are fluctuating within the past week or so.

    First of all check your backlinks list within webmasters if they low quality then remove them. Also if the traffic is down then even check keywords ranking it can guide you in right way. Because without these methods you can not stop ;loose of traffic.

    Thanks

    An update has been reported recently so that might be the reason which only suggests that you wait to see if things normalize.

    1) Check you webmaster tools "Index status" and "Structured Data" to check if you have drops there, my issue was this an inner page problem.
    2) If your pages are fine with no drop check your impressions and click data, if you see a drop there for some reason your serps droped. (might be a recently structure change on your pages)
    3) Check for penalty

    There other things that you can look into but do these for now.

    A last tip for everyone: Always track your serps.

    You shouldn't be worried at all. For your pages, not only dropping just occurred but also you've got some increases. So, nothing to worry about. Also, you are not the only one here having this kind of craps. Just wait another week and see the results.
