One thing people should realize before ditching or switching strategies. EMD's carry value beyond Google.

I think Google is only telling a small part of the story by saying this update goes after emd's.

(people link to bluewidgets.com with the text "blue widgets")
This thing reeks of a classic over optimization penalty - the whole things pretty unfortunate, another ill conceived stab at improving the quality of their results by using a broad brush to penalize a type of site they think is "low quality", instead of concentrating on scoring the "quality" sites higher, and letting the weaker ones fall to a natural death. (which technique do you think is easier to accomplish?)
Right now I am more interested in discussing the changes this so called EMD update has produced.

those hit hardest should reevaluate their long term strategy which is perfectly a valid point.
@JamesMacf it looks like your domain is back!as far as #5 ( effective #8 due to 3 adwords )..improved,( and no longer subjugate to the dotcom) but..you don't get many clicks at #5 ( effective #8 )..top 3 ( under the ads ) is what is needed..
