Ahh I reread my earlier message. I think I was unclear.
Anyway my point is the EMD didnt push domains down for the keywords in their domain (primary domain/subpage). They more or less banned them.
Anyway getting away from trends with G back to EMD.
This is what I am seeing so far. I have not found any trends that work out 100% of the time. But in general
Larger authority sites didn't seem to get hit. And new sites with 0 to a handful of links didn't get hit. From what I see sites in between seemed to get hit. For those middle ground sites I dont see a correlation with the amount of unique content. I also don't see a correlation with the general traffic for the EMD phrase.
I saw an earlier post from someone that had an old site that got hit but their newer sites didn't get hit. I looked at site age. This is a pretty limited dataset so it could just be noise. But in general I am seeing sites older than 2 years and younger than 6 months being less likely to get hit.
