    I've been reading around a lot and the term EMD comes up, but I have no idea what it means and can't find it on my own.

    as assphuck said, it's 'exact match domain' so if you wanted to rank for the keywords 'blue widget discounts', your emds would be bluewidgetdiscounts.com, bluewidgetdiscounts.net and bluewidgetdiscounts.org. Although those are best, a emd plus a word could also be used if they were taken... like bestbluewidgetdiscounts.com.

    Exact match domain. Something like buyfootballsonline.com would be a good example and with proper search engine optimization (SEO) you could rank for that exact keyword and ones very similar without much work.

    Exact Match Domain :D

    If you are ranking for: easy iPhone games, then a good EMD would be: easyiphonegames.com, easyiphonegames.co.uk and so on.

    It's a very strange cult spreading around the SEO community, that's why you see it so much.

    So helping other fellow BHW users is a waste of energy?
    Go to WF or DP if it's such a "waste of energy" for you to help others.

    Helping other people in the forum is never a "waste of energy" Always think that one point in time, you also needed help and people helped you out.

    There are levels of understanding. So I can't blame you.

    what would be the point of having the forum if we didn't help each other...it's not like every member knows everything about IM.

    Because according to Google, an "EMD" is
    Electro
    Motive
    Diesel

    https://www.google.com/search?q=emd


    The guy asked a question he needed an answer to, and he got his answer.

    So fuck off already.

    As sure as the sun sets in the west, I always can count on at least one member here to come up with a gem like this. Brilliant.
    You're such a help to the community with this attitude.

    Can't you search in google???
    If you can do that then you should do that easily.
    By the way EMD means Exact Matched Domain.
