    Hello

    about a year ago, I built lots and lots of xrumer links to an emd website. site got fucked.
    I tried to built some high quality links to it, it didn't help.
    Well, I gave up. I just took the site off, installed default wordpress theme saying "please upload your website"

    I mostly forgot about this site, until couple of days ago when I got an email from my domain registrar saying the domain is expiring soon. I decided to google "E M D" and see whats up. it turns out that I am now #4 for the emd. and the funny thing is that in the serps, it says "please upload your website" lol

    before xrumer, I used to rank for a couple of of 2-word phrases and some 3-word phrases. now I am just ranking for the emd, which is 3 words.

    Do you think the penalty has been lifted? how can I find out? should I renew, or move onto another domain?

    just check out how much traffic you are getting
    based on the analytical report you may decide to renew or not

    The only way to find out is to put more content on your site and observe if it will rank for longtails. Most xrumer links disappear after some time so they don't have anymore negative impact.

    unfortunately, I dont have that installed and domain is expiring in 2 days, so I cant get much meaningful data in a matter of 2 days.

    your site is ranking #4 for your E M D
    so am pretty sure if your keyword is having some traffic then naturally your site must be getting atleast some traffic
    just install analytics it will take hardly few min
    since your site is already ranking so analytics will be updated in an hour or so
    collect 1 day data and see how much traffic you are getting
    based on the analytical data you will be able to decide whether the EMD is worth or not

    Definitely renew it.

    Why? Because i'm in the exact same situation.
    - almost EMD
    - 4 years old
    - ranking #3 - pretty sure it was the last (03/11?) update.
    - obvious spammy keyword stuffed text
    - 5 sentences
    - keyword 10 times :)
    - links to money site: 5
    - blasted to oblivion ( xrumer )
    - the links are also broken since I cancelled the project it's linking to.
    .. you get the idea. ( i can pm you the url if you want )

    Lately after moneysite re-launch, I wondered wtf Im getting 100-200UV/day and the site was not even indexed yet.
    It's coming from the above 1 paragraph,5 spam sentences,xrumer blasted site.

    I would say letting these kind of spam sites go would be a big mistake as of now.

    #4 = $$$$ Renew it... If you want to go forward great! If not, monetize that domain and sell that url for bank!!!
