I checked (again) and it seems like we lost 70% of our Google indexed links starting in March 2018. So far, I do not know what caused this drop:

As mentioned, I have done a lot of checking, and we did not make any changes in March of 2018, as I was busy working on another project (cybersecurity).

I have no idea what caused Google to drop two-thirds of our links from their index.

Is anyone an SEO expert who can help us?

Thanks.

Hello Neo,

One of the reason(could be not filly sure) that sometime back we renamed a FORUM from "unix-for-dummies-questions-and-answers" to "unix-for-beginners-questions-and-answers", I apologies if I am wrong at that time I remember many links were broken which you fixed(this could be internal fixes for forums too not sure about it) but thought to mention it here. Apologies if I am wrong here.


EDIT: How about posting this in "GOOGLE forums" too? Till then I am also checking which place should be proper for this kind of question.

Thanks,
R. Singh

No. That's not the problem I don't think. We ended up not renaming it, but creating a new forum so the old forum would not break links.

However, I agree this could have contributed to the problem.

As they say "the enemy of working good is 'make it perfect' .. ." LOL

We definitely broke something OR Google changed something in their algo, but even if we did, Google would / should reindex it.

We need SEO expert and it's best not to speculate, as we really need an expert who can look at the site, sitemaps, index, meta tags, etc and know for sure what could have happened.

In other words, we need an expert, not guessing and speculation, LOL

Note: I posted this question to our SEO software provider, DBSEO today as well:
