Why I am ranking for irrelevant keywords

My website is e-commerce and used to rank for all related keywords like buy widgets, cheap widgets, online widgets in top10.

And suddenly my website was hacked and to resolve this hacking issue i have re-write all my dynamic urls into static pages after that new pages are indexed and ranking well. But after few months i have notice few changes in my ranking for few keywords. But suddenly after google Algo (EMD/Panda) update on Sept 27 i lost all my positions. And then according to google guidelines i have worked on over optimization and low quality pages. I have removed all tones of low quality pages from SERP and simultaneously worked on url re-write.

But i didn't notice any improvement in keyword positions. Recently i have notice that my web pages ranking for irrelevant keywords. For example, let's say i used to rank for home page for these keywords; buy widgets, cheap widgets, online widgets but now am ranking for different inner pages say (guide pages).

Can any one suggest me whats wrong..

I don't hear you mentioning anything about improving the value of the website. What great content have you added that users are seeking? How have you improved usability? What are you doing to increase return visits? Why would a webmaster think you are good enough to link to?
