    After the update last month my site went from 1st to 3rd/4th for the main keyword and it's stayed there ever since. All the other long-tail keywords it was ranking for are nowhere to be found except one which is at the bottom of page 4 (this keyword was ranking 1st before the hit).

    I can't even find my other EMD site for any of its keywords since it got hit last month.

    not yet, but i have dramatic issue with my EMD.

    EMD:
    till, 2nd Nov
    Daily visitor : 1500+
    unique Visitor from search engine: 1000+
    Search volume for Exact match term : 2700+
    Rank: #1

    on 3rd, after adding site to "webmaster tools"
    Rank: out of 50
    Visitor : 200

    on 5th, after removing from "Webmasters tools"
    Rank again #1
    visitor 1400+

    My Advise: never use "Webmasters tools" for your EMD sites

    No. Webmaster tools had NOTHING to do with it. Your site flipped around for a couple of days. It is pure and utter co-incidence. If webmaster tools slapped you, you wouldn't have magically recovered after removing your site from their page anyway.

    The tool is probably giving the numbers for EXACT match searches, which is what we IMers usually set it to, whereas the traffic may reflect additional visitors (in this case, a lot of them) who got to the site using a broader search.
