    Default Anyone Else Seeing Their Exact Match Domains Disappear in Google?

    I'm seeing exact match domains go from front page to absolutely nowhere. Anyone else seeing it?

    Apparently Google is targeting "low quality exact match domains" which will impact .6% of the search queries.

    https://twitter.com/mattcutts/status/251784203597910016

    Just another way for Google to produce more clouds to coverup their intention of pushing organic listings right out of the serps.

    I've actually seen quite a few of my Emd's go up. But maybe it isn't finished rolling through yet.

    I haven't really checked all that much yet, the few I did check are ranking well still..

    For those negatively affected, what commonality are you seeing?

    If you want to sell cars, just get a domain name with the words trucks in it. lol This should be some interesting stuff once the dust settles and the serps get even more fucked up with nonsense shit. I'm already seeing more instances of domain crowding in some niches...

    They'd already wiped out most of my EMDs, this time they got most of the rest.

    But my most important site, which isn't close to an EMD, is getting ass-raped at the moment. Hope this is just a dance.

    0.6% my ass. Google always downplays the actual numbers.

    I got hit hard. Most of my websites that were on the front page for years, survived all the lame updates and are now gone.

    This is exactly why I don't give a shit about Google and target Bing. Google is going to self-destruct.

    In his tweet he refers to "low quality" EMDs, many of you guys will probably have to build out ur emds a little more if you want to stay in the game for the long term. Perhaps go with 10-15 articles per emd?

    so 1-15 all got hit ... it is not number or articles/posts.

    How about anyone with age EMD?

    2 sites in same niche I sold off last year that are EMD got pushed off to nomands land or gone totally!

    One site is over 9 yrs..maybe 10 years old..generated about $170 in adsense a month for years.. the site is old html and ugly ass but I've never seen it GONE from the serps.

    The domain was keyword1-keyword2-keyword3.com but was an exact phrase that got lots of traffic.

    Most of my new sites are not EMD but I keep eye on sites I sold off.

    Interesting to see how things settle.

    EMD that got hit includes:
    - 0-10 Age
    - 1-15 posts

    My PR 0-1 EMD got hit

    How about with PR 2 and above? Any one to verify?

    Google is going after the pay per click search method they stole from a patent that was eventually bought by yahoo. That model was to put all paid ads first in order or the highest bid then if there was room show some crappy results from around the web.

    As soon as they went down that road I quit seo. Auto complete has killed most long tails and now just steers users to whatever google thinks they can make the most from. Half the time even when you force a search they give you the results they want to give you and you have to force them again to show you what you actually searched for and still get the same results.

    Get away. They are just playing with you. You can bet cunts and sergio are blowing each other and laughing their asses off reading threads on forums like these.

    But yeah anyway, no harm here as I gave up on google a long time ago.

    Just need someone to verify/confirm:

    - Shared Hosting/IP (All my EMD are same IP/ shared host)
    - Number of indexed links (from observation: domain with 500 and above indexed still remain)
    - PR (PR 0-1 got hit)

    You are probably right, the search results are not as accurate as they used to be.

    It is funny my first niche's highest searched keywords are all top position EMD's including my own.

    First niche is a 2 word EMD

    My second niche is like 50/50 but my EMD has been dancing a lot (page 1 to nowhere to page 5 then to page 3).

    Second Niche is a 3 word EMD

    Wow this is messed up. After further looking into what is really going on. Even though I got hit, it is kind of amusing, how absurd it is.

    I have a few high authority websites with author mark up that got it, and it is not an emd, it's a business brand, like seomoz. You think seomoz got hit? No way, they are immune to any update and/or nonsense.

    The funniest part is when I search my "real" name, my website doesn't show up. That's like searching for Matt Cutts and his blog isn't there. How stupid is that.

    Great user experience Google.

    Wow, this looks very bad for many... hopefully everyone will find some way to get the sites ranking again..

    My sites don't seem to have taken that big of a hit, if at all - though they probably wouldn't be considered especially low quality since each has at least 30 articles..

    Nope. Still on page #1. #4-5 for keyword. If anything I've moved way up.. Was on page #2 a month ago, rankings still strong. Site only has 10 short articles on it 100% original..

    Mine moved up from 3-1. But I have been building links but definitely no penalty, but its an authority site with good content.

    Their algo only looks at what is most profitable. Then they make sure to monitor everyone so they can rob your earnings when you do make something following their rules. Google(-) That's my mission...I hereby copyright google minus.

    Google's going to self-destruct because they removed your EMD MNS sites which were, no offence, but probably low quality and only about making money?

    I would say it's more likely to self-destruct if it allows crap affiliate sites to dominate. Google only cares about the user experience. No users = no money.

    Really what you're saying is that Google will self-destruct if they become even better for the users.. Doesn't make much sense. Think about it.

    my two sites ranked on page 1 for high competition kwds they both disappear. The only problem I think is that they both contain low quality content(I pay $2 for 500 words) that I got from freelancer. This is the main reason because my Other sites that are 2-3 months old still on page 1 and page 2 and in these sites I write articles myself.

    So this update is purely on content

    The websites that got hit were brands, not even consider partial match. They were not thin at all or affiliate websites. They have author markup with heavy content and got hit. Then, I have websites with nothing but videos, not a single word, let alone article, and they are ranking top 3.

    You don't know what you are talking about. So, youtube, ehow and ebay saturated serps is good user experience? Not likely.
