Iím not sure whats going on here.
But my site launched with a local .se domain which was active for 1 year. After some time I registered a .com domain and re-directed all traffic from my .se domain to the .com domain with a 301 redirect. The re-direct from .se to .com was active for 6 months. I removed the re-direct from my .se domain to my .com domain for 3 weeks starting from end of January. I then saw a decrease in organic traffic to my .com domain.
I thought that the cause was the removal of my re-direct from my .se domain so I decided to put back the Re-direct from my .se domain to .com domain in the beginning of February. but I have not regained the authority or traffic yet. Whats going on? Did i damage my site permanently when i removed my re-direct from my.se domain to my .com domain during 3 weeks? it is not blackout, jus to be sure?
What can I do?
I have checked my analytics, search console and backlinks history and found some moderately spammy backlinks which my site gained in January. I disavowed them 2 weeks ago. But no regain of traffic by doing that either. Which I thought.
The only reason I can come up with now is that my page speed is slow and the performance of my site is poor on mobile. But its hard to believe that this can have caused 90% organic drop for my website? Unless, Google did an update in January or February that addressed this issue.
I also found over 404 not found error pages on my site which has been there for a while. But this canít be the reason for the 90% traffic drop?
