    For the moment, the only fix possible are to use bulkaddurl or to rebuild a new website.

    Strange picture for my affected site
    In Ahrefs and Semrush there is a tendency for overall improvement
    But traffic dropped x2 yesterday and seems will be dead soon

    I have realised that this deindexation issue occurs on my sites that were created/updated in some time range in 2019. Sites that I didn't update (abandoned) before 2019 and sites that I created recently in 2020 don't have any indexation issues. Anyone else noticed it?

    EDIT:
    Nah, I see now that two sites that weren't updated since 2017 also got hit, so it's completely random.

    For me, at the moment I recovered 100% in one website. The other got hit hard with improve (around 30%), but still with many less traffic.

    Exactly there same here. #3 to #80+, still not gotten any rank/traffic back. Just chalk it off as a loss and build/rank more sites.

    I think the same way. Seems this is a mobile friendly bug. My site was using <picture> tags to load webp images and Googlebot-Mobile couldn't load them.

    I've gone and removed all "advanced" speed optimization from my site for now. No minification, inline everything, no webp.. that type of thing. Simple website for Google to render while they work their stuff out.
