    Hi,

    Whats the best way to get as close to an EMD as possible so it gets ranked for the search phrase. Market Samurai seems to like adding an "e" at the start as the first option but I am wondering if something added to the end would be better. Im just not sure what to try.

    Any suggestions please?

    plurals can be good if available. I often add an x. Depends one the word.

    After the EMD update, I don't think this is a good idea.

    Best option if an EMD is not available?

    option 1: save the cash you allotted for EMD in your savings account
    option 2: spend it in the way you enjoy your time around

    option 3: go with x, y , blah blah with EMD and wait until 3012 for google to rank it to position 7 - position 10 because position 1 to position 6 is allotted for adwords customers.

    all the best

    for me, I like adding a word of 4 letters at the end of the emd. works for me so far.

    Have you read the last thread about Google EMD effect update? Then you should.
    What I would advise you, is try to pick the common keyword which will have some words which fit in the keywords you target. For example
    your keywords "Hot chicks" "Easy woman", try to go with EasyHotChicks.com
    That's how you avoid EMD penalty and still have this important words in your domain name,
    Hope it helps!

    add dashes ? For example if "bestkeywordavailable.com" isn't available, try:

    best-keyword-available.com ?
