    Let's say I have this domain: kingsizebeds.com

    How hard would it be to rank, let's say: "sofa bed".

    Don't take the actual keyword in consideration, just an example...

    Is it much harder to rank if you don't have the EMD?

    Yes it is, because there is a big different between "king size beds" and "sofa bed".
    But if your domain ranks very good for "king size beds" it should be easier to create a "sofa bed" category than to create an other new domain. But else i prefer to create a new domain for each keyword which is so different.
    Of course it should be easy to rank for "king size beds cheap"..

    What I was trying to tell is that if I'm ranking for a specific kind of bed, is it hard to rank for other types of beds?

    In my experience, Google loves to rank me for secondary keywords - at the expense of my main keyword.

    The more useless the secondary keyword is, the worse the effect. For example, I could easily get a #1 for "blue-and-chartreuse polka-dotted bedding," which of course will get about 1 hit a year. This new #1 will also correspond with a drop into oblivion for "beds."

    It's like that engine is owned by Murphy's Law.
