This has been an onging problem that I have been able to pinpoint to a hack in my wordpress site/theme.
I have also received warning notice from google"
Search results clicks for  have decreased significantly.
The number of clicks that your site receives from Google can change from day to day for a variety of factors, including automatic algorithm updates. However, if you have recently made significant changes to the content or configuration of your site, this change may be an indication that there are problems.
I have attached image of graph.
You can see my normal level of traffic going along ok... but still lower than its been last 3 years. Then it drops dramatically.
I spent a weekend in August creating a new data base, new folder and fresh clean install of Wordpress and themes. I don't remember if I used fresh plugins but I cant imagine not. You can see the traffic went back up almost instantly.. then dropped right down again.
It could also just be a coincidence but I doubt it...
The numbers are horrible and about 1/10 of what traffic was.
I rely heavily on the site for affiliate income. I have since started an adwords campaign to shore up but would still like to get my organic traffic back.
I know there are no easy answers.
I was going to try new fresh EVERYTHING again and even considering drastic step of a new domain on the chance that the domain has been penalized.
Hoping fresh eyes and insight may offer some suggestions.
Thanks so much .
