    Hello guys,

    Before you start flaming me -_- I took some time off from Internet Marketing -about 3 years-. And obviously since then a lot has changed.I have been reading A LOT and using the search button and searching on Google to catch up on the newest ranking factors like an old dog but I am still confused about a few things and the EMD vs Brandable domain is one of them. Obviously, if you planning on creating a website for long term and will be on many niches then go for brandable, but what if I am gonna build mns? Do I use brandable domains or EMD's? Keep in mind that I will actually write high quality content and do proper on page seo .. etc

    Thanks in advance guys

    By buying EMD's you're bound to have more choices in your niches. For example if you find a good keyword in health niche, you buy a PMD,EMD for it and you try to rank. Then you find a good keyword for gaming, you repeat the same. If you'd have a brandable domain, you can expect returning visitors to your website, and if you just post health and gaming in the same website I think you understand that those two things don't match up.

    I see :) Thanks for your response. I was also confused because when I thought about it, if I establish a brandable domain and try to rank for a long tail kw, idk how I am gonna target that specific kw, you get me? But if I get an EMD, I will easily know what exactly to do to optimize my site around that kw.

    If your looking to create an authority site, a brandable domain name is the way to go

    Hi There,

    Welcome back to IM realm!

    Basically, there is no difference between an EMD and Brandable ones, it all depends on what you are targeting. Don't let animal updates hinder your thoughts or action.

    2 Cents Worth :

    EMD : Hits a very specific niche and desired audience, mainly small yet revenue-savvy group of people. With EMD, you may be limited to the respective niche/kw. Hey, EMD does play a vital role in SEO and information seekers.
    Example : If a person is finding Car Insurance Quotes, your EMD is carinsurancequote dot something, the person is likely to take a peep at least since it matches his findings.

    Brandable : The main purpose of brandable domain is being an authority website which yields multiple kw in the respective niche. This would attract quite some audiences from various KWs and who knows, may cross or up sell relevant products as well. By default, search engines have a more sanguine mindset regarding Brandable ones.

    overall, weigh the prons and cons, come back here and update us!

    Thanks a lot Commoner, such a great answer buddy ;)
    Well, my GOAL was honestly to make a lot of MNS so that I would earn a significant amount of money, get me? But I was like you know what? I might be better off spending all that effort on one domain and one website that would eventually and hopefully become a high authority and established site for the niche I am targeting and rank high for A LOT of keywords even those ones I am not targeting haha.

    Even though I know it's gonna be extremely difficult but I will do my best because this time I made a vow to succeed. I don't wanna work in an ordinary job for the rest of my life -_- IM is seriously one of my passions but my problem is that I am a very lazy writer lol but thankfully a good one.

    Hey Secret Agent,

    You're welcome, surely your name implies your characteristics haha

    Since you did have a success goal in mind, it is time to explore various methods to get around and achieve it! Well, your direct thoughts are same as mine, established an Authoritative website and bashed through many MNSes. At first, I do wanted to build 10 MNS websites but all thanks to BHW Family, care and concerns suggesting me to create a Mega-one to annihilate Minor-ones!

    its time to share the love with you :)

    Oh, before I forget ... an inspirational quote being passed down here too

    Never Give Up! Be The Change You Want To See In You Right Now!!

    I am in the process of building an authority website, and I might stay away from EMD just because I will have more flexibility with my post.

    I've used both and personally haven't seen a massive difference in rank-ability in recent times. But once again it's something you should experiment with yourself, seeing as others seem to have good results with emd.

    For low competitive niches the EMD ranks faster and no need backlinks. They are easier for optimization. Still have tons of top 10 results (actually for almost each search). The bad side is that some a$$ can easier do negative SEO on EMD, but this point can be skipped.
    Brandable - need more time for google to understand for what the site is about. Can be ranked without backlinks but much more slower and harder.

    Try to find an aged domain with backlinks that has been dropped. EMDs in the micro niche haven't done as well since the EXACT MATCH UPDATE.
