    This Penguin 2.0 Google updates will filter spam at page level while past updates target homepage level only. It is the best time that every webmasters, marketers and online business owners change the strategies and focus more on producing high value content that serve people lives so that they really want to link and share it throughout the web, however, compelling content is not enough without proper and divers outreach strategies such as guest blogging, email marketing, social media ,forum and community engagement.

      I guess that is the best way to deal with it if you are doing nothing wrong. Simply wait and they will fix the traffic in the next crawl.
