They still carry weight, example I found today http://asmaassad.com/
Still powerful. I have some EMD ranking on top 20 without any backlinks. Just unique contents and EMD.
Another bullshit myth. I splittest this with several EMDs vs putting kws on a larger site with no emd.
Rankings = 00000000000.00000000000000000 difference- both ranked equally quickly for their relative competitions.
Depends on how good you are at SEO. Real SEO means to rank a brand name for your keywords.
They have always carried weight.
It's always easier to rank with an EMD.com/net/org versus a non-emd domain, still is.
After the first Panda hit SEO 'experts' were all on about EMDs having lost their power, even Matt done a vid mentioning it, (more disinformation from G.)
I still like em and rank em.
relaying on EMD's is the worst thing you can do.
it still has a lot of weight IMO, but a good SEO would rank without the EMD as well.. from my experience, it has the same weight as it had before panda.
yes EMD still powerful and next G updates it will still powerful too .....
One advantage is definitely at anchor diversity.
You can brand link with the domain name as anchor, and you got both: natural brand + exact keyword.
Many EMDs i have were on page two with zero backlinks but good onpage SEO. So EMD is still powerfull.
In just a few days I ranked a EMD #4 with zero banklinks and almost no content. Very little competition, though.
I think post panda3.3 they carry even more weight.
That's the exact reason it works well.. Rep added
EMD's definately do carry rank, theres one 5 spots above me for my main keyword and he has 200 reffering domains from 30 class c ip's. My site has 1400 reffering domains from 1000 class c's
Aged domains have more power than EMDs.
I've done a few experiments and found that aged domains are easier to rank than brand new EMDs.
I also noticed the same thing. I am on #20 of a 90K exact. It's not an EMD but 11 years old domain. Just need a small web 2.0 blast.
I believe this thread is more a political advertising than anything else.
But if we have to talk about EMD, I guess it's not all true.
I googled "book" and don't see book.com in first page.
I googled "computer" and don't see computer.com in the first page while computer.org is #9.
Not true, that example was just me following a news item this morning about Mrs Assad, and checked the EMD just below Wikipedia, nothing political at all.
An EMD can give you some advantage, but EMD are not what they used to be. And their power will be further reduced y search engines, because to many people use them to spam and rank
Are you talking about dropped domains with no content or an old site?
