Google not indexing pages
I logged into my Google Webmaster account the other day and when I went to index pages it said I only had 22 pages indexed, down from the 153 I had previously. The weird thing is that when I go to the main screen of my Google Webmaster account it says my sitemap was last submitted 10/9/2013 and I had 174 out of 174 URLS submitted and indexed. When I go to Google and search my site via site:www.mysite.com it only shows 3 pages of results, mostly for image files. However if I put a space between the site: and www.mysite.com it comes up with over 800 separate pages, image files, etc from my site. I have noticed many of my pages dropping out of ranking significantly over the past few weeks and I am starting to think this is the issue. I know Hummingbird happened not too long ago but I wouldn't think my site would have been affected. I only practice white hat tactics. On my webmaster account I go to the malicious section and it says I have no new messages. I have asked google to crawl several individual pages on my site that I recently updated and crawled the main page and submitted it and all links to Google index. Does anyone know what could be going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
