    After a lot of research and using a number of tools I found a great niche with low competition and even it's EMD.
    The issue is that .com version of the domain is already registered and well established (but it's not very hard to beat). I want to know whether I should go for the .net or .org version and start building the site or should I go for some other keyword? and do you think that a blog will look any good on .net or .org?
    Do you guys think that EMDs still worth a shot?

    This will be a review website but I want it to be more personal than commercial.

    * I am a beginner in SEO and KW research (reading and applying strategies/method of people of BHW)

    I beleive EMD does still have some value. But I think its not a massive advantage now. Interested to hear some other opinions on it as well....

    They don't really have any advantage from my experience. They are a much more hassle, because you can get them easily overoptimized if you don't know what you are doing.

    Also, with EMDs, be sure that you know what you are registering. Check the history, because in most cases, there used to be some website.
