The answers to running successful EMD sites are here. Just don't make any sudden moves. It's like when the cops show up and someone suddenly bolts - they may not have done anything wrong, but they sure *look* suspicious.
I'd agree to a degree. If you were hit by the update give it a few days or a couple of weeks to see if Google rolls out an adjustment to the algo.
I'd agree. Run them just as you would any other successful site with the realization that the EMD is one ranking factor out of thousands. Don't put all your ranking eggs in that basket (or any one ranking factor) and expect your site to have consistent and sustainable organic traffic.
