No, almost no images at all on the site (except for layout of course).
Was it mostly image traffic that you lost?
But I am still digging through the stats and finding something very interesting I haven't seen before I posted this: the traffic I lost is disproportionately UK traffic or traffic to UK-related themes. By UK-related I mean let's say like a car that's not unheard of here in the US but not as common as back home in UK. Something like Land Rover for example. So, I lost both google.co.uk and google.com traffic to UK-related sections of the site as well as almost entire google.co.uk traffic to any other parts of the site as well. I do not collect IP info, so the google.com traffic to UK-related sections might very well have been from UK all along.
The loss of UK and UK-related traffic cannot account for the entire 90% drop but it looks to be at least 30% of it(side note: before this I had no idea the site was so dependent on UK traffic!)
The site is hosted in US, is a .com and vast majority of topics are not necessarily UK-oriented. Frankly, I've no idea why UK featured so prominently to begin with.
Has there been any Geo-targeting dial turning lately at Google?
