Hi,
5 to 6 months before my website was well ranked in the Google and I'was getting lots of organic traffic, but don't know why it's going down gradually not suddenly?

    There may be plenty of reasons for that. Maybe its one of the google updates or something else. So, share some more information about your site.

    Hello Dear, do SEO audit with some one professional and you will get your answer. You have to share some information regarding your website otherwise we can't help you.

    Check your traffic drops against known dates of algorithm changes. Also, check to see that you GOOD backlinks (assuming there are any) are still there or if they have been removed. It can also happen if sites you were being linked to from are now considered "bad neighborhoods", which would cause those links to be ignored, at best and a manual penalty, at worst.

    Google's latest algorithm shift has moved to relevant links that are from high authority sites. If they are crawling your site about roofing and see links coming from kitten websites, there is going to be a decline in your authority.

    Sorry, but now that the expression, "gradually but suddenly", has been used by two different people, I can't help but point out that it is an oxymoron.

    Hi,
    I'm losing my website organic traffic gradually. In the beginning of the year (January 2018), I was getting almost 1000 Clicks per day. Then, I moved subdomain to the subfolder. Since then, My website traffic was going down and down.

    Now, It getting just 400 Click per day. I've updated my landing pages, created few links too but don't know why it still not fixed.

    My website has around 70 pages to rank but Google search console showing 1073 pages indexed. Most of them are product tag, product category, and shop pages. I've blocked and index each of them,. hope they will noindex soon.

    In the last month, I've done the backlink audit and disavowed almost 100 links that look spammy.

    Still, I'm not seeing any Improvement. Please, can anyone help me out?

      Disavowing backlinks will not cause a site to improve in the rankings unless you received a manual penalty notification in Search Console. Google's algorithm ignores bad backlinks now, anyway, unless there is such a pattern of them that they have to issue a manual penalty. So, getting rid of links can only weaken the backlink profile, since some of them might not be seen by the algorithm as bad. The better solution is to go out there and get some real, quality backlinks.

    Hi,
    There might be some reasons that cause your site is dropping such as
    Low-quality backlinks
    High bouncing rate
    Google updates

    To overcome such a cause generate good backlinks, write relevant content so that user will spend time on the website and bouncing rate will be recovered. And important is pay attention to Google updates.

    Thanks!

    I think you should initiate communication with your website development team. Ask them to check robots.txt file.

    You should also check your XML sitemap and make sure it does not contain any error. It will help search engines index all of your pages.

    Check the quality of your backlink. I mean, make sure all the backlinks of your website are related to websites that belong to your industry. More importantly, all those backlinks must be from website having high Domain Authority and Page Authority. I am saying this because only removing 100 or more spammy backlinks alone is not going to help you much.

    Also check Google Algorithmic updates. Website's ranking also goes down because of updates to Google Algorithms. Sometimes, even a website having no problem also face the problem of loss of traffic and ranking because of Google's Algorithmic updates.

    Make sure Google hasn't applied manual penalty to your website for content plagiarism, poor quality content or copied coding or design etc. Poor quality content means content that is grammatically poor. It also means the content that is technically wrong and is not meaningful to your target audience.

    So, i hope this answer your problems.
