Google clicks decrease, why?
number of clicks came from Google for my website decreased 2/3 on the total since 12/13/2017. I don't know why and how to check if there is a thing affect to rankings of my website at this time. Or it is affected by this holiday season? everyone didn't search more on Google these days?

Rankings are not consistent and forever. Sounds like someone is ranking better than you now and pushing you down the ranks.

I searched on Google and read two posts Does web traffic really decrease that much on holidays? and Website Traffic Down During Christmas And New Years Eve? from authenticstorytelling and techbuzz and seem it is same to my case.
First paragraphs from their posts are what I am caring.
I hope this happen on holiday season and my traffic will get back after it ends and it is not affected by a Google algorithm updated recently.

I checked a few of my sites and the traffic has not dropped by 2/3 on any of them. Not even close. They are down a few percentage points but that is all. Actually a few are up. So overall, my traffic totals are basically the same. Now if I look at them over the years, almost all of my sites traffic is up.
But, traffic fluctuations are going to be different depending on the niche and target market.
Also don't forget that "some gurus" claim traffic drops during the summer. I have never experienced a drop in the summer over all the years I have been online. But people cry summer slow down every year.

I haven't seen any change in ranking for my websites. But Google confirms mid December search ranking algorithm updates.

Holiday might be a reason for decrease in search traffic. However I haven't realize this myself as my search traffic are constant in holidays as well. on December Google has confirmed that a core algorithm update has been launched named "Maccabee" update which have hit some of the sites. So, you have to confirmed that your blog has been hit or not?

The timeframe with the most volatility for some websites was between December 12 and 14.

Can you share the ratio of click drop?
If there is no major difference then you don't need to worry.

On another site, I have same problem but its traffic is recovering recent days and it is good now.

If your keywords ranking is not being slipped down to the other pages of the SERP, it must be your keywords. Most people in holiday search for entertainment rather than study- or working-related keywords. If that issue still persists until the work days, you need to check yours on-page SEO optimization such as content quality, keyword destiny, content length, and the HTML structure. May this help you.

So, if having quality backlinks to your site would be great for your site's traffic through search engines, why don't you buy quality backlinks from quality sites like Forbes, Wired, Huffpost, etc. So that sour site's traffic from Google would not be decreasing.
