I am struggling with traffic from Google on my sites and cannot figure out why

I am struggling with traffic from Google on my sites and cannot figure out why.

My sites are following:
 
Winesworld(dot)net site worldwide targeting
winesworld(dot)com redirect to winesworld(dot)net
Winesworld(dot)no redirect to Winesworld(dot)net/no target Norway
Winesworld(dot)se redirect to Winesworld(dot)net/se target Sweden
Winesworld(dot)dk redirect to Winesworld(dot)net/dk target Denmark
Also a Norwegian blog at blog.winesoworld(dot)no and a
Magazine at magazine.winesworld(dot)com target US
I have just added mobile friendly pages hoping it will help.
 
I am getting 55% traffic from Bing and only 29% from Google it does not end up.
9 months ago I quit using Google Analytics and it got worse….. Google tell us that they are NOT using the data from analytics, but are they anyway?

  • Edwin Jonk: The first thing I checked where the backlinks, it appears you lost quite some links (50 %) this year:



    Do you know why?
  • Morten Pedersen: Thanks for the input. I have no clue about the backlinks, but now I know where to look.

    It's way too noisy Morten and can very easily be manipulated, therefore it has and will never be used as a ranking metric ;)
  • Pe lagic:  ;<wtf> community's linking policy? </>
  • Jim Munro: People know what I mean,  ;. We don't generally allow active links in questions.
