The Exact-Match Domain (EMD) Update is a change in Google’s ranking algorithm launched on 27th September, 2012.
The algorithm update caused “exact-match” domains with low quality content to fall behind in the search results.

If a user is typing the keyword "how to make money online" ( without the quotes , ofcourse) and if there is a domain like http:// HowToMakeMoneyOnline.com | HowToMakeMoneyOnline.com then it used to get a very good ranking. Because the search query and the domain name are exactly same.

But this feature was abused by many niche marketers and they have created domains with exacctly domain name as the keyword but with all the crappy content. So, google results started showing this domain in top 10 results even though the content on these domains is not good.

That's what they have corrected now. If your domain is an exact match domain but does not provide valuable content to the user then it was removed from search results. In other words the importance of having exact keyword in your domain to rank in google serps has been reduced.

The EMD Update — for “Exact Match Domain” — is a filter Google launched in September 2012 to prevent poor quality sites from ranking well simply because they had words that match search terms in their domain names. ... New sites with poor content — or those previously missed by EMD — may get caught.

Google recently announced the EMD update. EMD stands for exact match domains. The exact match domains update is a new filter aimed at ensuring that low quality websites do not attain a high page rank (PR) and rise high in google,s SERP,s ( search engine results pages) just because such websites have the relevant search term in the domain names. Google states that EMD like the other filters(Google panda and Google penguin), will be update regularly.

EMD refers to Exact Match Domain update. It's related to degrading ranking of the domains which contains the exact keyword in it. Most of these domains are bought for getting high rank only as they contain the exact keyword in domain name, title, and content.
