well, this site was hit before the 22nd. It was actually hit around the 5-6th of october according to my traffic stats.
The thing is, I had 2 sites ranking top ten for widgets. First this site dropped to page 2-3 for widgets then the 22nd my main site dropped to page 2 for widgets.
I also noticed, my secondary site had a domain that was 301 to it from the same server to my main site. This could be that google caught the fact that they were both hosted on the same server and dished out penalties to both.
I corrected this issue a few weeks ago, putting my 301 domain on the same server as my main site and making sure no whois information can trace back to the other domain.
These 2 websites do rank similarly for the same terms but they are both unique and provide value to its visitors.
