If you keep an eye on your blog stats, probably you must have noticed a slight/major decrease in your site traffic after 19th october. If you have not noticed it, go and check your stats and do let us know if you are also a victim of technical indexing problem from Google search.
Many webmasters and bloggers who blogs on different blog platform reported on Webmaster forum about the indexing issue and Google not indexing latest posts. Specially BlogSpot bloggers are widely affected because of this Google indexing problem.
More over instead of indexing real URL, Google search was/is indexing URL with feed tracking links and UTM tracking parameters. At Google webmaster forum, moderators and Google employee accepted it’s a technical glitch and they are working on this to resolve this issue.

Just to be clear, the issues from this thread, which I have reviewed in detail, are not due to changes in our policies or changes in our algorithms; they is due to a technical issue on our side that will be visibly resolved as soon as possible (it may take up to a few days to be visible for all sites though). You do not need to change anything on your side and we will continue to crawl and index your content (perhaps not as quickly at the moment, but we hope that will be resolved for all sites soon). I would not recommend changing anything significantly at this moment (unless you spot obvious problems on your side), as these may result in other issues once this problem is resolved on our side.
Many users reported the issue is with Canonical URL and other factors, but for now, I would suggest don’t make any major SEO changes on your blog. Let the issue get resolved first. It might take couple of days for everyone to see the changes.
How to check if you are affected by Google indexing problem?
Go to Google.com and do a search with site:domainname.com (Ex: site:www.shoutmeloud.com). Click on more tools on left hand side and select latest. If you see all recent posts listed, you are not affected by Google indexing problem, but if you see many posts are missing, it’s time to wait and watch.
