    It looks like ranking for EMDs and PMDs (partial match domains, ie. bluewidgetdeals.com) suffered a decline.
    It's no news for me, I've seen a lot of PMDs domain of mine wiped out from the SERP after the Penguin (I think it has to do with overoptimized anchor texts, btw).

    What's your experience with EMDs/PMDs after the Penguin Update? Did your Adsense/Affiliate site suffer a decline (and how did you handle it)?

    No decline at all and i have 100+ sites and have around 65 EMD'S still ranking in number 1 spots. So.... not sure where they are seeing a decline.
