A few weeks ago we've experienced a sudden drop in our Google rankings. On Feb 14th we did a redirect from example.de to example.com/de and on Feb 18th we did a redirect from .com to .com/it. Organic search didnâ€™t drop and everything seemed stable after the 301 redirection. On the 19th of April we moved the site from http to https. Soon after this we experienced an increase in page visitors, which remained stable for a few months until the 26th of June.
On the 26th of June we had a drop on all the domains:
So, not only the redirected domains dropped but all of the domains. This drop remained stable for the last few weeks. Until now we are not sure which caused this drop but we are thinking about undoing/removing the redirected domains and change example.com/de back into example.de and example.com/it into example.net but are afraid that this might hurt our ranking again.
Hopefully someone can tell us what caused the drop? And if undoing/removing the 301 redirected domains can recover the drop, only makes it worse or will have no effect on our rankings?
Thank you in advance for helping us out
