Theres more to a Google slap than just content especially with the recent Penguin update which targets websites with over-optimised links. Second, if your content, unique or not, is similar in style to ehow and others like it (lots and lots and lots of how to articles!!?), then again you can get punished. Going forward content needs to be unique, good quality and if you can, don't make it obviously keyword focused - this is very easy for Google to spot. For instance I read about a real estate agency who wrote lots of articles about "real estate" which is to most people boring and dry and got nowhere....then they started thinking outside the box...did a piece.. "a valuation on the White House" which went viral - lots of traffic, links etc. You can read the full article here.
