    Both my authority sites have tanked across the board.

    WTF?

    Just looked in Google WMT, said I got manual actions on both sites. Thin content with little or no added value.

    Do you think that using WMT on your website could led to penalty?

    If you had very little content on the website with decent rankings then it wasn't an authority
    site in my opinion. Hate to see that you're sites were penalized. Authority sites that last are
    based on their content and on-site SEO.

    I had an ass load of HQ content on the sites, don't know how they managed to hit them both at the same time, I even deleted them from WMT.

    Could You tell us exactly what happened, so we won't repeat your mistakes...
    Loads of short articles? Spun content? Duplicated content?

    It's funny to read people with a problem that dont post url of site. What can we help you? Or you are in mistake or you are a simply troll.
