I seem to have finally wound up on the good side of Google for this update.
One money EMD's, widgets.net rose to #1.
I started this site fresh in May after penguin knocked widgets.com back to page 10. Widgets.net is pr1, and has about 5 or 6 links built from forums and quality blog posts, and maybe 50 internal navigation links. It has 30 pages of quality unique content with a new article posted every 10 days. It has unseated an aged PR3 site (company.com) that has sat at the top of this keyword since the Penguin update. I've worked my butt off on this site; glad to see the effort rewarded. Hope it stays here awhile.
Other 4 EMD's in front page positions, all with decent content, some with unnatural directory links, are so far unchanged or slightly improved.
I feel for you guys who were hit, I truly do. That was me in April.
