My site has been hit hard by Google updates several different times the past three years. My traffic from Google would drop unexpectedly (11,000 to 4,500 sessions or less in one day some times) then recover a couple weeks later only for it to happen again. The significant drops were 9/4/13 (increased back up 11/5/13), down 1/9/14 (back up 2/14/14), down 2/22/14 (up 4/5/14), down 4/19/14 (up 5/23/14), down 6/6/14 (up 9/17/14), and down 10/25/14 where it has slowly trailed downwards since. I've looked into Google algorithm updates but haven't been able to find any smoking gun(s). Has anyone else experienced this type of traffic behavior from Google or would have any insight into what's causing this?
Thanks, I appreciate your time.
