sgsurvey, you mentioned that you're using hidden text, and that you're scraping content from other people and using it yourself. Either one of those could be contributing to your problems. From listening to feedback that the search engineers heard at the the last WebmasterWorld pubconference, I have a strong hunch that we're going to be taking a closer look at sites that are just scraper sites, or throwing up a copy of the ODP with no value added. So I wouldn't be surprised to see (for example) sites that are just scraping Google (or possibly other sites) not doing as well over time.
