    After the penguin update, I can see lot of site with EMD ranking higher than other popular site like problogger.net! Search "blogging tips for blogger" in Google and you will find that site "tips-for-new-bloggers.blogspot.com" is ranking on number one and problogger on fourth. Darren Rowse must be scratching his head :p

    They are not "bad", I have a few that rank #1. I also had one that was ranking #2 before the update that is now ranking #18. But the difference between this EMD and the other ones were the backlinks. The EMD site that went down had backlinks from spun articles. The other EMD sites had backlinks from original content on high PR blogs.

    I don't know why I see so many people on this forum lately talking about EMDs being bad because lots of got hit with the recent update. Am I the only one who is seeing EMDs on the first page of Google for almost any keyword that is searched?...

    EMD's are not bad at all, its just that the better the quality of links you build to your site it gets ranked. Over optimization of keywords will push your rank down even if you build good backlinks. Make sure the keywords are in the article in a normal way and not in a SEO way.

    They're still ranking well, but the trick is to build them out into 50-100 page mini-sites.
