..but most of the sites I work with are hand-built EMDs and I remember being surprised at the speed at which they jump to the top.
Can I ask what the competitiveness of those niches are? And are those sites getting a lot of supportive link development as well? or do you think they are ranking solely / primarily on the basis of having an exact match domain?
