Perhaps that will be out of topic, but, in that 1 year if you had started from scratch new websites, small and targeted, you might have been on top results. Did any of you analysed the SEO of new websites on top results? its easy and has nothing to do with old SEO link building,keyword stuffing etc, just follow the guidelines, unique content,good design, social elements. And back to the topic, I don't think there will be any recovery as long as Google will multiply its profits.
1 year anniversary of penguin, no recovery
