It's this: in order to target content farms and work out their "true" authority, G dialled down the emphasis on internal linking. Therefore sites with good external links to every single page are doing great, but sites that depended on sheer size and internal linking to rank, have tanked.
If you don't mind my asking, what is your link situation? Lots? Not many? Spread out amongst many sites or many from a few sites?
How large is your site? Were you first-page for most terms you wanted?
ortelius, I would like to give you some suggestions.
What is it that Google did to devalue "content farms" and why did it effect so many e-commerce sites?

Having the same link text twice on a page (in the subsections) might not be a good idea? I'm very tempted to try it.
