I thought I was immune to Google problems - 1200+ book reviews, been around forever (either 11 years or 17 depending how one counts it), simple clean design with Amazon links but not much else, unrequested backlinks from all over, nothing even slightly dodgy - but I've been hit now. Half my reviews have been pushed out of the index by random duplicates with no standing, the other half rank nowhere, and Google traffic is down by maybe 70% or more.
The advice on the Google webmaster forum is that my site is a bit tired and I should jazz it up a bit. But I like Web 0.5!
