Few days ago my website completely lost rankings, It was ranking in top 5 for some of the top competitive keywords for 2 years now, and now it's nowhere.
I haven't received any warning, penalty or nothing in GSC or mail and site has completely lost rankings. It's not even the last page of SERP for KW. Even when I domain name then also the website doesn't show up.
But the twist is I all the URLs are indexed and even getting crawled, I've checked it using site: and in GSC also.
One thing, week ago I faced japenese hack but after a day or 2 I fixed it and after that site was again ranking the same way same position.
What could be the reason for this?
I am thinking of redirecting to new domain, will it work?

I am also facing same issue. My website got hacked and ranking was on first page for mostly every keyword. But now ranking is above 50-100 and few keywords nowhere. I am trying to do everything, now changing website content.
don’t know what’s going on and how to solve this issue.

@ss1180 what do you think cause this issue, I don't think changing content is gonna help here, I am thinking of redirecting to different domain.

That is my main website and old site also. Let me try with content first and then I will make some very high quality links. Will see what happen.

when you search for a unique sentence from one of your posts, do you see any results in google?
have you checked your robots.txt file to see if any thing funny is going on?

one more thing: take a look at this: https://www.getastra.com/blog/911/japanese-keyword-hack/. do you think, this is what happened to you?
