Actually yours would be the one that is hit?

The affects of this are odd, I’ve seen some smaller EMD sites totally disappear, while others that are also EMD have actually gone up the SERPS.

Conclusion: Even if you have an EMD if the content is not great you site will be hit.

The effects are definetly odd ,I have 2 non gaming EMD’s that are almost same 1 with no hyphen .net sitting #1 and a hyphened .info sitting #10 that is only a 1 page ( feeder types site) with duplicate content ( used it from the.net site)

Either this was missed ( most-likely) or it is not over yet !

google sees sites with hyphens as not same as a space so your actually getting around the EMD slap with them (this is my theory)

GamblingShares answered 1 year ago
How do you get a domain with a space ? and why would you want one?

allfreechips answered 1 year ago
Um, you would want onlinecasino.com ie no spaces.. and a hyphen just drops the value huge to google.

ie online-casino is 1/10000 of a name than onlincasino is.

There’s some early data in from Google’s recent EMD algo Update. Although it was targeted to only 0.6% of English speaking queries, the impact appears to be pretty substantial.

Here’s some recent info that we’ve been able to gather:
