"I would be very interested in an further update on your EMD domain. My EMD also recovered on 28th Feb, back to the top 10 for our EMD keyword. Two weeks later (13th March) and we've fallen back 400 places again."
My site continued to rank #1 or #2 (swapping places with Wikipedia, ack, spit) for the exact name. But, traffic went way down after Google demoted EMDs. Looking at the keywords used for searches, Google had apparently decided that the name of one of the music artist's albums was more significant than anything else. So, traffic for every other keyword phrase dropped.
As I recently mentioned, my traffic went up recently, about 400%, nowhere near what it was, but significantly. Then it slowly crept down again. Now, it's still getting about 50% more traffic than it did after getting hit by Google's EMD "fix."
BTW ... I just transfered the domain to the artist's record company. They finally decided to create an official official site (as opposed to the unofficial official one I had been running). So, I have moved my site to a new domain and 301 redirected the old domain to the new site. The record company is leaving the redirect in place until the new site is ready then they'll include a link to my site in the new site. I'm loosing tens of thousands of backlinks dating back a long time, but I'm gaining a link from what should be a more authoritative site. It'll be interesting to see what happens!
