    Im still not decided conclusively about whether emds provide a significant benefit.

    I've ranked both emd and non emd and havent seen a drastic difference in how quick an emd ranks.

    Im still playing around with them, I might get another one in the next few days to try.

    I'd recently bought one comparing it to my non emds on a site I add new kws daily. It seemed to rank to number 2/3 rather quickly but difficult to tell if it would have done that anyway as every kw is different.

    So Im thinking I will have to do a few more to get an idea once I see patterns form.

    I have not noticed a difference. I have stopped focusing on EMDs for a while now and I like to buy aged domains in the same niche. You can usually get some free content out of it. Although for local websites, especially with google places, I like to always have an EMD.

    So how about for aged domains? do you notice a big difference ranking those vs new ones?

    That is something I havent explored myself yet.

    Aged + EMD = Dominate.

    Yes, the only thing better than EMD is having an aged EMD. However, if it came down to aged + stop word vs. EMD, I'm taking EMD everytime - although difference may be neglible.

    Of course aged plus emd but that is alot to ask for a regular working method.

    I bought two more emd with varying comp yesterday so gonna see how it pans out.
