3) keywords in domain name
I begin to think this seems to be the worst crime of all in Google's eyes!
Agree with hissingsid (UK based) EMD's are as strong as ever and not a factor in this update imo, however I have had some that were hit for over optimised offsite anchor text and links from known blog networks.
I have a site in financial services that was No1 for popular two kwyword search. Dropped to page three and only showed the contact page (which i'd no followed sitewide!) on the 24th april.
i removed all the onsite keyword navigation like #*$! insurance to just #*$! and its back on the front page, 1 week later.
It didn't reappear after the 1.1 which makes me think that rollouts are ongoing phrase by phrase, and anchor text over-optimisation penalties apply by page by page both on and off site.
