    Hey

    so i found some easykeyword.net domains with decent searches

    but thing is that they were active sites in 2010-13

    if i build them again, will they suffer the rankings or will rank as good as a brand new domain?

    thanks.

    Most EMDs were already abused in the past. I've seen cases where they were not penalised, but they simply refused to rank. Stay away is my advice.

    You're better off with dropped domains from @Nargil with great stats

    Seriously.

    A lot of EMD sites were beaten to death with bad backlinks OR neglected to death after the previous owner did not get the 'magical' serp bump they thought they'd get just for putting up an EMD site

    The Golden years of instant ranking EMD sites are over. You need to actually DEVELOP them -ie, not use thin content - for them to go anywhere.

    How is this connected with question about EMD?

    @OP, 5-ish (?) years ago Google decided to penalise some domains with EMD (even though that was their company name) and now a lot of years later these sites wont rank (if you recreate them) even though they dont have bad off-page SEO. Why? Ask Google.
