    How to Recover from Google EMD update?

    Recently, many EMD sites were affected by the Google update which targets exact match domains and almost everyone is looking for ways to recover from it.

    Today while surfing, I found a pretty awesome post that went viral over the social media.

    Here's the procedure - http://www.tiptechblog.com/recover-g...t-match-domain

    EMD stands for "Exact Match Domain".... As the name says, the new algo targets domains that contains main keywords in the domain.

    Well seems its not all about keywords in Domain or EMDs with low quality content. I keep an eye on several EMD domains which have survived still rank at top. Someone these domains have very little content or blogs with no content at all. I think keyword stuffing in title, meta tags and in Content effect this too.

    Agree with you ... Even I've seen a few sites that doesn't deserve to be on first page but are !

    IMHO, that is a terrible article and there is no "penalty." Google scores different factors to determine its ratings, one of which is how close the domain matches the search query. Google just dialed down that one factor, which means you need to focus on additional issues. But it is not a penalty.

    Let me add, that absurd article suggests now making your website a "brand." Of course, if you are a "brand" that is what people search for meaning your website is suddenly an "EMD" - where the domain matches the search. If you are trying to avoid a "penalty" you would not want anyone searching on your domain name, which means you would not want a brand.

    I would assume the article and the Google update are focusing on exact keyword match domains rather than brand name domains. By this I mean a website such as http://thisishowtogetasixpack.com/ will be penalised for having a keyword in the title. Whereas a site such as Internet Marketing & SEO Forum | IMTalk.org would not be penalised because it is not using words from the dictionary, but people still search for it so it would imply it is a good, brand-name website rather than one just using highly searched keywords as the domain.

    That is just how I see the update, I hope it helped.

    I agree with the points that kindsvater has made. The article seems to be quite confusing on its view on Branding and EMD.

    We will beat them though, there is always a way just doing it the right way is best and there is nothing wrong with what Google are doing because they just do not want spammers spamming.
