Help, what happened to my traffic?

    I went away on vacation for two weeks from Sept 1 - 16 and during my time away something drastic happened to my traffic.  I went from averaging about 150 views per day to almost nothing.  And it all happened almost overnight on Sept 12th?  Did I get myself into Google's doghouse somehow?  Before I left most of my traffic was from Google so I suspect something happened here.

    I did read somewhere on HubPages that it could be the fact that my Hub summaries are taken directly from the first paragraph of my Hub and therefore may not be unique?  Could this be the issue?  I have started changing all of my summaries but I'm not sure how long it will take reverse this trend if this is indeed the problem.  Does anyone out there know of any other reason that may have caused this? 

    Thank you all in advance for any help?
