    There are literally few similar threads about how their EMD site got affected.

    Is there anyone with an EMD thats not affected? I am curious if it really impacted everyone here.
    I have a EMD site myself (no competition, low monthly searches) and is not affected.

    No adsense. But have it on both analytics and webmaster tools.

    Yeah my clients sites were not affected. Lots of content, aged, and they are real sites.

    Otherwise no, my adsense and affiliate sites got smoked

    None of mine have ben hit yet (fingers crossed) most of them have 10+ articles 100% unike, targeting at least 15 to 20 keywords, the ones that target 1 or 2 kw are also fine

    My new EMD from about 2 weeks just got indexed and is slowly crawling up the Google ladder with a few social bookmarks. I guess since mine was indexed after the update I bypassed it?

    Most of the EMDs on the first page of my niche (extremely competitive and popular) stay where they were.

    Absolutely. I have 2 EMD sites that have been a focus in the past. Both are pretty thin; 10 pages of content. They have analytics and webmaster tools. They were both #2 for their KW's before the update, and remain at #2. One has thousands of local searches each month.

    I am starting to freak out less. Chatted with my partner, they made me feel much better :) they always do though :D also, the website traffic hasn't quite tanked as I thought it might. We can last until we climb our way up (as long as, well, we don't get penalized to the dark dark pages of 2nd and beyond). It looks like people are still finding us through further long-tail keywords so there you go.

    Adapt, learn, evolve.
