    Being new to the SEO world obviously is a very steep learning curve.
    Reading posts on BHW annoys me when i dont know the Acronyms that everybody is using lol. Google turns up nothing as it just thinks im looking for stock markets or some random acronym

    Does anyone have a list or would care to compile a list of acronyms which could be stickied for newbies like myself?

    The one I get stuck on is "EMD". I know it has something to do with domain names but not sure what!!

    I think he might be talking about acronyms for tools used by members here as in:

    TBS - The Best Spinner
    SB - Scrapebox
    VPS - Virtual Private Server
    SC- Spinner Chief
    TT - Traffic Travis
    XR - Xrummer

    Home Page:
    EMD = Exact Match Domain

    It is where your domain is the exactly same as your keyword. For example if your keyword is acai berry informations your domain would be acaiberryinformations.com
