I'm not sure how they can calculate the "intent" of my website. It's a very genuine photography (don't know if I'm violating any rule here) blog. It's got many images and everything original. The only thing I ever did was hire an SEO firm for directory submission (about 1k-2k links). But I did get some genuine links from ehow etc. Penguin killed 80% of my traffic and no level of optimization will help now. I'm moving to a new domain without a 301 redirect. I'm going to have to load a page saying this "page" has moved, please fix your bookmarks and you'll be redirected in x seconds. Seeing that there are no more penguin updates is very discouraging for sites that are trying to recover. But I bet there will be at least one before christmas (cause everyone including Google doesn't want to miss money then). Pls tell me penguin is all about external links.
