    Hi,

    Do exact match domains still help to rank in the top 10? Please let me know.

    Thank you.

    No. Don't you see what big players are doing? They're building brands. Anyways some people also prefer partial match domain, the keyword with a suffix/prefix with it in the domain

    Lots of marketer said, EMD is dead. But still i am watching, its working now. I think, 50/50 chance you have. :)

    You cannot rank only with EMD. You need to do some more work to rank...

    They work if Google thinks your EMD is your brand name. Which you would need links and content for.

    EMD still work. But your question about top 10 is absolutely nonsense.

    What competition?

    For "viagra", you can't.

    For "Sam' meatball kiosk on Franklin Ave", you probably can.

    Better to go for partial EMD or something like KewordReviews,com
