I made few changes and lost %75 of my traffic
About five months ago I made few changes on my site, after that slowly started to lost my traffic. Now I've lost %75 of my traffic and of course my Google keyword ranks dropped drastically. Mainly two things I changed:
1- On each essay page I put an empty layer onto essay's layer (to prevent copy, paste)
Here's a picture of it:
2- I added h1 (title) and h2 (author name) tags.
An example of my new essay page:
And old (before I lost any traffic) version of it:
Old Index page:
Essay menu page:

I know it but why all my keyword rankings dropped so drastically after that change? Even some keywords which were on the first page now not in first ten page.
Maybe there's some other site out there that's better than yours (or better optimized); you might try looking at the search results that precede yours.
Or maybe your target demographic lost interest for whatever reason. The school season is about over (at least here in the US). If students were the primary viewers of your essays, for example, there might be a drop off.
Or maybe your users got frustrated by the user-unfriendly changes you made (disabling the ability to select text); those kinds of changes are easily circumvented by viewing the page source or using the Web developer tools that now come built into every browser and only serve to ruin the user experience.
The visitors who type my site's name to Google and this constantly increases so it's not about holiday time or 'un-friendly' interface but only because Google dropped all my pages' keyword ranking after that changes.
