My website is a Wordpress blog, hosted on Dreamhost with the domain <sorry, no site reviews>. The site is app. 6 years old.
Normally I have around 1.300 daily visitors (80% coming from Google), last week this suddenly dropped to 200-300 per day.
I had 3 weeks ago a malware attack via Wordpress script injection with suspension/blacklisted by Google, indicated in webmaster tools and via browser (Firefox/Chrome). I restored a previous version, updated all outdated plugins, wordpress version and so on and traffic restored within 2 days. Everything seemed normal again for about 1 week until 6th of June with 1.2xx visitors. On 7th June that dropped to 628, 8th to 405 and since 10th June I only have around 200-300 daily visitors.
There is no more Malware and the site seems to behave normal, I also didn't change or add any suspicious links or whatever.
What could have caused the drop with Google and how can I restore it to previous traffic levels? I know my posting frequency is not very high, but that was already like that the last 2 years.
Could anyone please give me some clues on what went wrong? I'm at a loss currently.
Thanks a million!
