    There's a lot about your post that are half-truths. In some cases your words are just 100% inaccurate.

    I read this and I am speechless... it's not about emd or such, it's about quality... I know quite some emd domains which rank really well and deservedly so. I read your point 2 and 3 and I see no reason to continue there.

    In many ways it look like you tried to make it 116 myths, tho those myths are a truth indirectly,

    You tried to say, why these wont work alone TRUE, but yes it can give better boost if used along with other factors.

    Eg.
    1. Schema Markup is a Ranking Factor: True, indirectly, HIGH CTR ==> HIGH RANKING. as we all know CTR Is and Going to be one of major ranking factor.

    2. EMD Rank higher: TRUE, but if used alone and spammed well, you wont get what you looking for.

    3. Starting a website on expired domain is better : True, but try to checkout the history well, exactly,for which we are starting website on expired domain.

    4. Domain Age is Important : True, if you mix it up with other factors, you'll get a great ranking boost.


    ....


    ....

    etc.


    here i dont meant to discourage OP, all i meant is members wont get misguided.

    "For last years Google put an end on many black hat tactics and discouraged the people who want easy results." <<----- Consider revising, few grammar issues

    futurestunner there is always room for debate but I created this list exactly to help people. That is what I learned for my 10 years in the industry and what other respected people say.

    1. "doesn't influence directly on your rankings" not more to say. You need to dig deeper on consumers reports and will understand how people learn to skip flashy stuff over the years.
    2. I said it is a short term tactic. Why to push people to churn and burn SEO? Is it sustainable? Because I can show you how used this tactic a few years back and am really tired of it and at the end everything is down the drain. And you are a sitting duck relying on EMD backed with spam. Just 1-2 spam reports and you disappear :)
    3. Just share with us how easy is to find great old domain lately?
    4. I understand you are still back in the time a bit but no problem you will soon catch up :)

    Good share, but the nature of the internet is such as half of what is mentioned may or may not be a myth. It better stay that way.

    I don't agree. Myths are only holding you back.
