    You have likely been hit by one of the updates. They don't always provide you with feedback in the Webmaster account. If you know that you have participated in gray/black hat methods then you can be sure that you have been slapped by Google. If not, then try to describe the situation in more detail.

    Hope that helps,
    Ole.

    Hi,
    Google has rolled out Penguin 2.1 on 5th October'2013. I think your site is effected by this update.
    Few basic tips:
    • Do keyword variations such as long-tail, domain, click here etc
    • Do not link with keywords every time.
    • Do not copy content from others.
    • Do not use any tools/software for building backlinks.
    • Collect backlinks from relevant high quality (High PR, High Domain Authority) sites.

      Hummingbird should not affect ranking as long as you have been doing the right things all along. It will just give you more precise answers if you ask google a question.

    A lot of Google updates are occurring these days, even many of them remaining absolutely unannounced and you are not the only webmaster experiencing a quick drop in ranks. Such sudden changes in ranks usually occur usually because of link profiles. Meaning that many of the links pointing to a certain site quickly become with no values. Like when thousands of links come from only a few forums or blogs or when all of links have exactly the same keywords. If your website does not have some good content pages, that too could be a reason.

    Yes there has been an update few days earlier, you need to see if you have any low quality un-natural backlinks to your site, or any stolen articles/content.
