    I know there's been much discussion on the whole EMD thing and I have an interesting situation going on.

    I've got two sites with exact EMD. One is an authority site with much content that I've been working on for months that has, numerous back links, fresh articles etc. in a field of low competition. All I'm getting for action is some very long tail keywords.

    The other is a niche site that I haven't updated since June of last year and is number 1 on every major search engine and has been for many months. Site has NO backlinks, six articles and in a field of high competition. Even stranger is this site outranks the N.Y. Times, Huffington Post, Meetup, Pinterest, Forbes, Facebook...well, you get the idea. Grant it the site is an EMD and outranking articles for those same keywords, but still, look at the sites these articles are from.

    Why do you think this is?

    Anyone in similar situations please comment...TY

    You know, that could be possible. I did purchase a "back link package" from a reputable member on BHW but really have NO idea what the impact could be on the site, good or bad...

    Just did that after I saw your post and it's still #1. That's why I think it's weird. I've read so many things on "G" not ranking EMD's anymore and I'm trying my ass off on one site and can't be found and the other is right at the top with nothing going for it but half a dozen hand written articles and no back links. Go figure...

    Hey buddy use IMPERSONAL.ME to search if its still same ranks.

    Add your authority site to Google WT and see if u get a message for unnatural links
