    I have monitored a tendency - websites with exact match two or three keyword domains take G00gle #1, though have just < 50 BL, poor content (etc just a landing page), registered few moths ago, but most of them use Clickbump engine.

    This seams like a joke, but is true.

    Have you noticed this?

    I have not noticed that. But all I noticed is that, when a website is well optimized targeting one or two keywords and has a high PR backlinks tend to go up in ranking in google.. This is my observation.. correct me if I am wrong!

    Even not necessarily to have high PR backlinks ;) Would prove it with several examples, but they are from my niche, so can't share unfortunately.

    How do you know the sites you are looking at are using Clickbump?

    Well if you already have Clickbump (as I have) it's not difficult to recognise the few default themes that go with the engine :)

    The word on the street is that exact match domains are going to lose their advantage in Google pretty soon.

    Yeah they are probably next to go. Now that the "content farms" have been taken out the "spammy" sites left are often exact match or variations of the keyword with poor content.

    I wish it were that easy. My exact match two word eight year old domain (has been mine for 1 year) is stuck on page 2.

    This is fine for any webmaster out there... all this would do (if it is the case) is hold the site owner accountable for the information on their site. It is all about accountability - I am an elementary teacher full time, if I don't deliver high quality content to my students I will get fired. The same holds true for websites - if you don't deliver quality content you will eventually be dropped.

    Just my thoughts...

    I can say I have an exact match domain in an extremely hard niche. (iphone related) that has ranked No1 since I put it up. It is an awful site with rubbish content. It was built in xsitepro2 and I blasted the hell out of site with xrumer. It got sandboxed for 3 weeks then came back at No1 and has stayed there ever since. I have also not updated the content in any way apart from testing different affiliate program banners.
    It was originally a test site for my my xrumer blasts but I no longer need to build links for it. For about 6 months it even outranked apple on a keyword that I was not targeting but was a variation of my keyword. If I did more linking work it probably would of stayed there.
    Anyway, don't worry too much about the latest buzzes, only worry if they actually happen to your site and work around it. Nobody truely knows what the hell google is doing from one day to the next, if you spent all day worrying about what might happen you would not get anything done! What I am saying is that by rights that iphone site should be no where near page 1 but year in year out google keeps it there despite all the rumors. If you don't try you won't know!

    Well unless you work at Google I can't trust it. Personally I would love content to outrank exact match domain names. I would also prefer to make content for my website rather then figure out how to game Google to get my site at the top of the SERP. Google doesn't give a shit for content. All they care about is $$$$ in their pocket.

    While I do agree that EMDs do give an advantage, it is not the be-all end-all. I've ranked inner pages over EMDs before and I've seen many domains without any keywords in the url rank for #1 as well. I also believe that Google might tone down the advantage eventually, but probably not anytime soon. Regardless it's not something to fret about anyway.

    Google can screech with self-serving posturing all they want to about "improving the the user's experience" or providing them "quality content." What their real agenda amounts to is control of rankings (as in big corps get page 1, all us little guys page 100), and securing an exclusive distribution channel for their own profits, to the exclusion of others.

    G wants to protect a targeted keyword/content system pathway that maximizes its Adsense money center, yet can't be as efficiently used by other parties to make money. In fact, they want the other folks using the system to be called "spammers" for also trying to monetize G's pathway. How convenient to control both the main path to searched for content, and the image of all your competitors!
