Have you already updated those components?
I'm not sure at this moment but some tweak needs to be done to solve it in HTaccess.
I think some setting for canonical url neds to be filled or added if it is a Custom Template

Are you using canonical. Google could have launched another algorithm update. I'd wait a few days first.

I see your site still has about 100 keywords in the top 10 (According to ahrefs). what are some examples of pages and keywords that have dropped in the SERPS?

Don't be so quick to judge your rankings. Wait for few days & observe the pattern. Then do whatever requires.

Ideally all your urls should be secure - beginning with HTTPS. Google prefers https.

Duplicate content can be addressed with a canonical tag. Do some google searching for canonical tag and you'll find lots of resources.

I would use GT Metrix to solve your page load time. Its not bad but could be improved on. Optimise images and minify your css/javascript files will help.

I would definitely obtain an SSL certificate though and make it 'https'. Google are big on this right now.

I have just checked your website with Ahrefs. Perhaps the main problem of the website is that there are too many backlinks, you should disavow less, if possible then delete the bad backlinks completely. Building quality content is the number one factor to consider!

Probably because you posted a WP site in the joomla forum you go penalised.

hi,

first: Check your website Content Plagiarism
Second: Are you using canonical.
Third: Page Speed (Including Mobile Page Speed)
Fourth: Mobile Friendliness.
