    So i've heard of this happening before, but didn't think it would happen on a site that's been established over a year. Anyways, I recently updated my WP theme and within days my traffic dropped from ~40 visitors a day to almost 0. Had nothing to do with link penalties, and no onsite keyword changes were made to result in onsite penalties. I wasn't getting much business from the site anyways, but this question pops up sometimes so I thought I would make a thread.
