I know correlation doesn't always equal causation, but I wonder. So I implemented a code on my site a day before yesterday and I lost 10% (from the lowest average point) of search traffic the very next day. My first guess was Google flux, but it has happened before. I removed the code the very next day and boom, traffic returned to normal. Usually, I know Google is slow to react to things, so I'm wondering, is this a Google flux or is it possible that implementing a code on your site can affect SEO and traffic? PS: I analysed the traffic on the search console and found that the average position didn't drop, just a significant drop in impression. The code implemented was an ad code.
It don't know that it is just a coincidence, Google doesn't react this much fast. I also managing some display ad sites, when I change something it take weeks to change in ranking. Here in your case might be possible that it may slow down your site, because Google strictly follow site speed factor. Sometimes you see a special situation. Hope you removed it.
