---- High rankings in Google organic, but big losses in traffic

Google autocomplete suggestions that suggest alternative search terms before your particular phrase comes up might also hurt.
It's a simple matter of being aware of those autocomplete suggestions (everyone should be) and incorporating them into the text of our pages as long as they can naturally blend in, and of course in the proper measure.
That way they can't hurt but only help.
The loss of "referral keywords" from google directed traffic to a website is only a minor nuisance as long as we still have the autocomplete suggestions because they are very similar. The same can be said about the keyword tool -- just use the autocomplete suggestions for research.
