Hi BHW members, I decided to make this post after seeing that lots of people are being confused by the continuous drops in serps caused by recent G updates. In my case i own 6 sites in different niches half of them are EMDs, i was able to maintain my rankings for a long time now and even pushing some of my main keywords to 1st place. What i did basically is i started updating my sites with fresh content (very long articles about 1000-1700 words each) at least three times a month. also i have only one no-follow link to the product I'm affiliated with; because i found this affecting my sites in the rankings when i had a link in every article on every page. And remember to put a link to your home page for better inner linking structure with related keywords don't use the same one over and over. Now here's what matters most: I built very high quality Web2s linking to my money site with unique high quality long articles (1000 words average) about 30 web2s a week. You can do this with any tool you want or by hand which is preferred. Remember to include a link to your home page and a link to other inner pages. I leave you with this MS capture for today's rankings for one of my non EMD sites (1 year old, but other ones are much younger and still ranking well) The difficulty is medium-high competition.
