I am a victim of the June 4th massacre, and have never recovered. I certainly looked at the over-optimization angle, and have done major de-optimization, to no avail. Very, frustrating to say the least. Google is a tough nut to crack, and seems to be getting too "smart" for its own good at times. Although still the dominant search engine, I will go out on a limb here, and predict a loss of market share over the next year. The other engines (e.g., Microsoft) seem to be making larger strides these days, and this will gradually narrow the gap.
