EMD stands for exact match domain. It was last year, google came up with an update called "EMD update". According to this update the websites having their domain name as some keyword (for example "seocompany.com" ) and having bad backlinks would be penalized.

This is just a brief about EMD, rest you can read on searchengineland.com. You can get all you want to know.

EMD domain names are generally good for your SEO strategy and when they might possibly be a bad move for SEO. Exact Match Domain names are just that–domain names that contain an exact match of a keyword or keyword phrase. So, an example of an exact match domain name would be “books.com” or “travel.com” or even Keyword1Keyword2.com where “keyword1″ is one word and “keyword2″ is another keyword. It’s widely known in the SEO industry that having one of these keyword-rich Exact Match Domain names will astronomically increase the chances that the site will show up on the first page of the search results for a keyword search that contains those keywords or keyword phrase. Currently, this “additional ranking benefit” is only valid for .COM domain names that do NOT contain hyphens.
