    You may be lucky because you wouldn't have done any external SEO, which could have tanked your Hubs in Google. Me, using old anchor text SEO tanked my Hubs (I think). Wish I had some advice on how to improve traffic but this penguin is too new.

    hmmm, that's a significant fall :-( I do not see that in any of my sites so far. IMHO the usefulness of Google search has declined in the last few years and neither Panda or Penguin seem to have brought any real improvement.
