JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

Search Console says it isn’t.”So if there is a manual action, then definitely we will be showing that in Search Console.So at least from that point of view,we would not see that as a penalty or as a manual action if you don’t see anything in Search Console in a case like this.However, things can change on the web.And that includes our algorithms.That includes the rest of the web.That includes a lot of different things.So going from 1,000 visitors a month to 2 visitors in a month,that’s certainly possible.It’s not something I would completely rule out.And fluctuations can also happen.So even when things go well, sometimes search will fluctuate a little bit.With 1,000 visits a month, that’s– I don’t know,hat is that– maybe 30 visits a day.that’s not that much traffic.So that’s something where sometimes even small fluctuations can have a big impact there.So that’s something where maybe this is just a normal change within search.
