My website was doing relatively very well in terms of SEO, I was getting around 10 000 page impressions and more than a few thousand clicks per day for keywords that other than my brand name. Keywords such as "Hard Food", "pre-cum" and some drug names.

And then one day I witnessed a sudden drop and since then I'm only stuck with a maximum of 1000 impressions per day and a few hundred clicks only for my brand name.

My SEO score on WooRank is around 70%, my page load speed is 93% (according to GTMetrix, ySlow).

The website didn't change, the only thing that might have changed was that we stopped the Google Ads.

Is there anything I should consider? or maybe I'm looking for the wrong type of optimizations.

Let me know if you need other info!

There's no way anyone can know what happened. Based on the timing and what you wrote you probably got hit by the Penguin algorithm. Google has said a lot about it. Research it and go from there. FTI, woorank is meaningless and page speed is just a tiny part of a page's ranking. –  John Conde Jun 16 '13 at 21:14
    
Panguin Tool can be useful in analyzing these kinds of problems, since it sounds like you were a victim of Google's search algorithm change: barracuda-digital.co.uk/panguin-tool/# –  Igor Brejc Jul 4 '13 at 12:23
