Do you have the right ad type enabled for your chosen network? i.e. if you were targeting all networks with display ads, then you would have been getting all your impressions and clicks via the display network. Now that you've excluded that you are either not serving the right type of ad (text ad) for the search network, or, your targeting and optimisation settings within your campaign are not geared up toward search users. 

 

Did you change something else? If you were previously on first page in search terms and now you are not, I'd be amazed if it's caused by you excluding the display network as the two things are totally unrelated, even in the same campaign.
