If you are losing keywords in your SERPS check that your URLs are still indexed - manually in the search console.



A month ago i noticed a drop in the number of keywords i rank for, i figured it's normal, but this month my number of keywords fell by ~70%...

It turned out a couple of my pages got deindexed. Surprisingly submitting a site map did not fix the issue, instead i had to manually request reindexing of the affected urls.


The worst part is i did not notice any drop in indexed pages on the google's dashboard :ranting_w:
Plus i had to track down the deindexed urls manually.

Looking back this issue coincided with a WP update, so i assume it has something to do with the sitemap plugins.
If anyone knows if there was a known bug please do tell

I don't think it is a bug from WP or something wrong on your site or even you resubmit sitemap will not help.

This affected by Google algorithm updated and changed recent time. :)

Traffic dropped not only on your site but more other sites.

I also noticed the Google indexing issue for my projects and when I searched for the solution on the Interent, I got a very latest Blog for this concern - check here

Possibly some kind of glitch by Google, Google can do mistakes!
