    Since they have devalued both the effect of domain ages and domain name some after the panda update, which would you consider to the best domain to have a link to your moneysite on. (same article and link on both domains and lets say both domains got the same backlinks)

    A 5 year old domain with a completely off topic domain name or a brand new domain with your main keyword as the domain name?

    I think G would value an EMD over an aged domain if the aged one has no relative words in it. With their new algorithms I could be wrong but there is my two cents.

    Sounds like the most logical thing to me too, but Google's been known to be fucked in the head before.

    i will go for emd... having old domain with no keyword in it is for only temporary option. U rank for a keyword using 5 year old domain and some one else is buying the emd for that keyword. You will have advantage may for first 6 months. But after that emd will come front permanently..

    so basicly for a short term solution, aged domain
    and for the long run, domain name.

    makes ok sense.
