Not sure if you're still following, @allensmith81, but: the way I've heard others check for this is looking at whether the same trend in traffic increase / decrease happened over the same period of time in past years per season.
If it's different this time, and nothing major changed on your end (like a feature implementation), it was probably an outside influence that's affecting others too.
Hope that helps. Sounds like it is post-pandemic falloff, from what @melissapotvin and others shared.
Also, thanks @Chao for the great point about watching algorithm changes, and @elbranscomb for the helpful article.

We had a similar issue on our community where a filtered word was part of a bigger word that was a genuine word in German. Could you remove the first * so that when the word is part of a bigger word it doesn't get filtered and then extend your list of words to include words that are still objectionable when prefixed to your filtered word? We have 16 words on our list that contain your word and most of those start with the word so the word* would work for those and then we have just one that has a prefix to your word that is listed specifically rather than using the *word rule. I can't find any other way to explain this without actually using those words so I hope this makes some sense? 😊
