    An exact match domain (EMD) is a domain name that exactly matches the keyword you want to rank for.

    Hi Friends,
    An Exact Match Domain is a domain that exactly matches the keyword. So if you were trying to rank for "purple shelled turtles" having would be an Exact Match Domain or EMD.

    In the past Google has given a lot of authority to EMD's. But spammers have used this as a method to create garbage sites and still get a high ranking becasue their domain was an exact match.

    So Google's update is giving less authority to EMD's which means that they don't rank as easy.

    Most likely there are other issues with why your sites may have dropped. There were other updates that rolled out at the same time.

    An exact-match domain is a domain name that exactly matches the searched keyword phrase of a user, and contains no dashes. For example, if you search Google for the keyword phrase “diapers,” then would be the exact-match domain name.

    And EMD is either a single word like, a phrase like, or a geographic location like and would not be considered EMDs.
