I have an informational website, I almost never add any pages to it, but it keeps getting constant traffic.
Over 170 users shared different pages from it on Pinterest.
When I was looking at my "links to your site" on the search console, It used to sat for years that I have over 300 links from interest.
But sometimes within the last few months, that link count decreased to only 25!
Almost all other links that I have were created by spammy websites. I didn't try to disvow them, as it has been like that for over a year now i guess.
I noticed that since November I'm having a major traffic decreae - about 30-40% less traffic from Google.
I think it might be due to the drop in link count from Pinterest, even though the links just kept on growing, so can't figure why Google decreaed the number.
Then again, these links don't carry link juice, but I guess they do have some influence.
The only other possible reason I can think of is that I still didn't migrate to HTTPS, but I didn't find any info that says that not doing so will lead to such a great traffic decrease.
Any actionable insights?
