    I have a few questions, domain/seo experts assist if you can. Ive been doing well with seo; my positions are page 1 rank 3-9 (range, amongst a few). I was considering looking into EMD, and I narrrowed it down to three. Here is the intelligence on the EMD's.

    11/28/06 (3 drops)
    11/19/10 (3 drops)
    12/6/03 (1 drop)

    The dates are the creation date, based on whois tools it had those drops. They are exact match domains, and all are .net's.

    My question is, (1) How bad is a drop and what is it exactly? My intentions are to buy, revamp a site dedicated to that keyword (im having trouble breaking my 3-9 positions amongst all my keys, but fee an emd would be easier to rank.

    Anyhow, let me know what your thoughts are, thanks in advance.

    If you mean how bad is a drop in terms of its history i would use whois, wayback machine and site explorer to take a peek at its history. Also check the google blacklist tool


    and also the google sandbox ad tool


    I have noticed that sometimes that first blacklist tool will say that a site is blacklisted if it doesnt have much history, i have bought several that it says is BL and once they get listed that goes away, its odd.

    As far as what is a drop, its simply a site someone hasnt renewed, they usually go to auction or will drop. Hope that helps a bit.

    Basically a drop resets a domain. The only hurt is that any link juice remaining from old links is re-evaluated and the age is set to zero. Multiple drops don't mean any extra harm.

    The age is reset but in many cases the PR will stick, i have seen that first hand many many times. I have bought dropped pr 2-5 and they stick and will last as long as the new content is similar to the old sites format. Cool thing is most of the links will still be there as most webmasters never check to see which sites are dead or gone.
