    There is no easy way, in most cases its an educated guess as google dont tell you, look at dates when you saw the drop and see what else was happening with new releases.

    If the traffic drop coincides with one of these dates, that's probably Penguin:

    After that there was also Penguin 4.0 on September 23, 2016 but for that one traffic is decreasing very slowly, so it may often be hard to tell when exactly it started dropping. Penguin 4.0 is said to be the last confirmed Penguin. After that one there's no definitive way to tell...
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end
