Google made an update around the 15th/16th in which they refused to give much detail about but many have noticed. It might not be "network" related but something you do the same on each of the sites that caused the drop. Some questions...
- Images, did you get a good deal of image search traffic? Has that dropped?
- Heavy hitters, did most of your traffic come in on a handful of pages? If so, did any of those lose traffic?
On my site I lost traffic on a handful of pages but gained it on others. Images on those pages that used to be shown up top of serps are now intermittently shown below 12 results for youtube videos. When the image results appear at the top my traffic is good, below... not so much. It's not a sitewide thing in my rather limited data analysis.
