Dear All,

I am the webmaster of example.com and I would like to discuss this particular issue about Google dropping its Search Engine traffic by 70%.

Since the last 4 days, the traffic of example.com has gone down DRASTICALLY by over 70%. The main source of traffic is Google.

I confirm the following to the best of my knowledge:-

1. No Changes were made in Feb.
2. The Servers were running fine without problems.
3. Pagerank has not changed or not yet changed. :/
4. Sitemaps are fine and updated regularly
5. Google Webmaster does not report any critical problem
6. Other Search Engine like Yahoo & Bing, traffic is Normal.

Please help me pinpoint/understand my mistake. Why would this happen all of a sudden within 2-3 days.

Thank you.

Seems like a lot of people are having a similar predicament, you might want to read up on these three (long) threads:
