What should I do about the Exact Match Domain (EMD) ?

by dragonboy46 9 replies
Hey all,
I've been going through Google Sniper 2.0 as some of you may know and will give you my review here on warriorforums if this system still works and also some tweaks which I've used as of 2013, till now it's going well. The course teaches you to build sites on EMD (Exact match domains) like keyword.com but the new Panda/Penguin are penalizing the EMDs sites so.. should I continue with his course and register an EMD domain or should I go with other domain names..

Any advice on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

    Why are you following an old, outdated course anyway?

    I know EMDs and subdomains that are in use purely for SEO purposes. They might've gone slightly downward, but there's been no dramatic change. However, there's a legitimate and long-running site behind those addresses, not just your SEO gimmick of the day.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    A little tip that may help: Change your title so that you can continue with your EMD domain name.

    For example, if you have buywidgetonline.com and your title is "Buy Widget Online", you might want to change to "Buying a Widget Online" or "Online Widget Buying" other other sentences that sound more English structure.

    In that way, your title is not the same as your EMD and that may help. I tried for one of my site and it went OK.

      I think EMD is not so important today. Good content + vary your anchor text backlinks + build your private blog network and you will be fine
