    Mystery drop in Google SERPs

    In the past few months our site http://bit.ly/2sCXgMw has gone from around the top of page 2 on google.co.uk for our key search term "media training" to basically nowhere.

    We've had no Manual Actions or warnings.

    We did have some dodgy backlinks set up around 10 years ago, but have done our best to remove or disavow these.

    The site was hacked about four months ago, but this was quickly cleaned up and our rankings have still continued to fall.

    Our website isn't perfect, but it is reasonably optimised (compared to competitors), mobile-friendly, fairly fast and regularly updated with useful content.

    I've looked at every potential reason I can think of, but am at a complete loss. I can't help feeling there is something simple I'm missing.

    Would be hugely grateful for any help.
