Literally one day my pageviews dropped like crazy - 15 April.   

For example 16,834 (1-15th March) to 16 (15th April til 30 April).  

So something happened but I don't know what.

The website is


Google tag assistant say there are 3 analytics accounts and 3 tag manager accounts attached to the website.  One of those accounts is the adwords guy (UA-23212383-1).


I plan on going in and finding their tracking ids and remove them - but any ideas on what might have happened?


i have yoast seo and google analytics by monsterinsights.


Thanks Lindsay

Start in Search Console and see if you have any messages, then look at Search Analytics, Crawler Errors, and Index Status. Once you can diagnose the problem, then it will be easier to fix.
