Help in Solving a Problem
Since November 2nd the total daily visits to one of our websites have halved.
This is from all traffic sources(direct, organic and Paid), which rules out a drop in rankings (plus rankings are virtually the same).
Another peculiar thing is that it only seems to be the Homepage which has lost page views. All the other pages of the website have actually seen more page views since the said date.
The drop seems to be across all countries and cities, as well as key terms (including - "Not Provided" and Brand Name terms)
I have checked webmaster tools and all is in order, a few pages not found but nothing critical. The robots.txt file seems to be all in order as does the tracking code itself.
If anybody has any answers, or suggestions of things to check, it would be much appreciated.

What type of site is it? Did you make any changes onpage? Is it a seasonal site? What's the URL?

I can't put the URL due to my new user status
We haven't made any onsite changes but i have noticed a change to the homepage title, which the client has made a change to for some unbeknown reason.
I wouldn't say it is seasonal. And even if it was the visits would just stop overnight.
The site is a gas detection website, with an attached e-commerce site.
Thanks for taking a look

When you review your GA data and view the data by ONLY SE traffic, do you see a decline? Not looking at your actual SERPs, but looking at your Search Engine traffic via GA.
You can format your url like this: www dot website dot com
