The only thing I can see that might have helped my affected site was to make sure ALL meta descriptions/keyword lists, <title> text and <h1> text were UNIQUE. e.g. not having <title> text with the first few words identical on many pages (as can often happen for articles broken up into various pages) and not using exactly the same phrase in too many places (title, description, h1 and anchor text). Also make sure the description isn't simply cut out of the on-page text (at least not from the first paragraph). I now use a coherent mixture of sentences from different parts of the page.
