My website has seen a dramatic drop in search engine traffic (over 50%) since swapping to https 2 months ago.

I have .htaccess rules for 301 redirects and since it is a Wordpress site, I also have a SSL plugin to change URLs on the website.

What could be causing this slump?

Drop in traffic in August

    Have you also claimed and verified the https properties in Google Search Console? – Bronwyn V Oct 19 '18 at 20:56

    Yes absolutely. 301 redirects set up via htaccess on the website too – Prateek Oct 19 '18 at 22:34
