I’ll certainly hold my hands up to being confused and thinking this until their recent update on database size. I don’t think it’s an uncommon (mistaken) belief either.

Seem to recall it being something to do with someone discussing Avinash’s brilliance. It wasn’t 27 though, it was taking the root of the number IIRC.

They’re operating off their own indexes of the web and they take what appears to be quite different approaches to (a) what pages they bother including/reporting and (b) how they crawl in the first place. If budget allows you can use tools like @linkresearchtool to combine + clean

The post says it’s mostly a UK issue which is, according to Similarweb, around 30% of their traffic. Similarweb also estimates 30% of their traffic is organic so, assuming it’s common across countries, a 50% organic drop in the UK equals around a 4.5% traffic drop overall.

Of cause the post itself could be by an imposter after seeing the scale of the drop the tools are all reporting. I’m willing to believe its real, though, given how much attention it's had without any public statement saying its fake.
