    I've noticed that a lot of my competition are using emd domains, and they have been in the top 3 positions in the past 6 month. They do have good content, but very few backlinks. So does emd domains have any advantage or not? :cool:

    They do. The update was basically against low quality emd websites.

    If the competitors are smart enough they don`t reaveal all backlinks. And to be honest EMD has a small advantage but not enough to skip the KW if the EMD isn`t available.

    Cheers

    Only those EMD's were penalized which were only ranking because they were exact matches
    surely they do work and they will always have advantage

    Yes, they still work very well...and bing & yahoo absolutely love them! Not very difficult to get a EMD ranked in those search engines.

    You are not the only one here capable of using that kind of language.

    You actually answered your own question. You title the tread saying EMDs work great and you state in your OP that your competitors are doing great. Then you go on to ask the question if EMDs have any advantages or not. Makes sense to you?

    We still were nice enough to answer your question. So please refrain from using any foul language. Tackle sarcasm with sarcasm if you can.

    High quality EMD's still work.

    Only low ones got penalized badly.

    From my little experience, everything counts, the on page SEO , EMDs , Backlinks(good ones), quality content, I think that you have to focus on everything ; do not neglect anything, Then you'll have a great results
