I'd be really interested to hear updates from those who moved from an EMD to a non-EMD a few weeks/months after the move. (IOW report back in the future please.)
I'm curious if this really a solution in the long-term or if the domains are ranking from something in the algo more along the lines of what allows the "churn and burn with 301s" to happen and maybe it's only appearing to be a solution right now.
I've read a number of reports where domains appearing to have been hit by different factors in the algo (including Panda and Penguin) rank initially after a move via 301 only to have the algo "catch up to the move" and tank them again.
So, please, let us know down the road if the 301 solution continues working or not.
NOTE: I have an EMD with no issues. Been pinned to the top for quite a while above some bigger names and way better PageRank, so I'm personally not seeing any type of penalization for using an EMD.
