I have noticed a significant (roughly 30 percent) drop in google traffic since October 28th or 29th. I'm a full-time food blogger and most of my traffic comes from google, so this is a serious concern to me. I've been searching high and low for what may have caused my rankings to drop. It's baffling because my is composed of entirely original, high quality content and photos.
Today it occurred to me to check when I last updated WordPress, which was on October 28 or 29. Coincidence? It's the most direct link to the traffic drop that I've been able to find so far.
Here's a screenshot of my organic search traffic from the past 2.5 months. You'll see regular upticks on weekends and a significant drop around the 28th. screenshot
Please, please help.
