    Am not that big an expert on seo but from my former research, I learnt Google hardly uses Page Rank for ranking websites. Now, I guess we all know most of our SEO techniques are always tailored to suit Google's requirements.

    For now, Google uses Domain and page authority to rank sites. So I guess that's what you should be focusing on bro Dailylifehacks

    Google no longer consider Pagerank as a website ranking factor while PA & DA help in SEO ranking in Google.

    At present situation you should care for no one. PR which is not public anymore and DA is a third party metrics so it doesn't count.

  • First of You Should Know about what is Domain Authority and Page rank, Then How to Gain these authority for your site,

    Domain Authority is the authenticity of root of domain means main url of your site or site name.. So many factors work behind to gain domain authority - 1. Domain Age
    2. Quality Backlinks
    3. Social Signals

    Page Authority - is the Authenticity of your single page from your site.. this is developed by moz..

      Horse manure. Domain age and social signals are NOT used in the DA calculations.

    Today authority is defined by trust scores taken from Majestic and domain authority, page authority taken from Moz.

    Page rank and Domain Authority both are different factors of SEO. The last update of Page Rank released on February 04th 2013 and after everyone is following Domain authority and Page authority for search engine ranking. In the past, Page rank decided by Google but in the present Moz is handling DA & PA for everything.

    Obviously DA is better then page rank because SE does not consider pagerank as a ranking factor. So focus on generate good backlinks from high DA and PA with relevancy.

      DA is NOT better than PR as DA is not used by any search engine as a ranking factor.
      Google still uses PR as a ranking factor.

      Bullshit! Google still use PAgeRank to rank sites. DA is NOT used by any search engine to rank sites..
      • PR is limited to measuring the influence of links, while DA includes a wider range of metrics.
      Bullshit. DA is based totally on links
      • DA updates several times each month, while PR does not.
      Bullshit. DA is NOT updated several times a month. PR is updated every day!

      You know wrong. Google still updates PR every day and factors that into the ranking algorithm. it just no longer exports that value.

          That is the exact reason that they stopped exporting it!!!!! People were using it to falsely "value" a site. I value sites based on things like conversions, ROI etc

          Because they said they update it every day. They factor that new PR into the ranking algorithm every day. All they have not done for 3 yrs is export that PR number for us to see.

    Hi,
    Domain Authority is a metric created by Moz.com as a more accurate indication of the value of the site.
    PageRank is an algorithm created by Google founder Larry Page, and named after him. It’s a simple measurement of links and link equity.

    Page Rank tool by Google is gone now because Google want to evaluate the real time natural factors of any web page to give it good or bad ranks.
    Page Authority and Domain Authority is a term introduced by MOZ in the industry of Search Engine Optimization. These are just measure's to evaluate the quality of any web page and domain by some of industry experts. If you want to follow them then consider the Domain authority (D/A) the priority and Good Page authority (P/A) the most important factor . Means both are important.

    But If don't want to follow these measure's and consider the Google's real time factors of quality and uniqueness be natural with researched information on your page then your web page will get good ranks in Search Engine automatically. There's no need to consider any kind of PA/DA.

      What is gone, is the common sense or any clue to google or SEO.

      You people are totally clueless and deserve each other.

      I could repeat that PA DA are not used by any search engine...and google still uses PageRank. But that would be a waste of cyberspace.

    page rank is not a part of SEO any more. The things you should keep an eye on are PA and DA (which stand for Page Authority and Domain Authority). They are what keep your site take good place in Google search machine.

      WTF do DA and PA have to do with "keep your site take good place in Google"? NO search engine uses DA and PA as ranking factors.

    you guys are looking at this all wrong

    first Moz values are not ranking factors in Google

    with that said if you looked at Data Driven Search Engine Results
    you will see that there is a tendency to see sites with higher DA values appearing in the SERPs on page one

    but don't let that drive your decisions, this is a outcome of "Vincent's Change" implemented in 2007
    for placing Brands on page one as default

    today with RankBrain this has changed drastically

    relevancy is working best
    start looking on how to become more relevant, the clues are all over the SERPs to prove this

    for example Rich Snippets, the site chosen sometimes is not even on page one but is the most relevant for the Snippet

    Domain Authority is closely related to Page Authority, which measures individual pages while Page Rank only covers the overall site. Page Rank is calculated by Google itself, while DA is a third party calculation. DA updates several times each month, while PR does not.

    Where are you getting your information?

    If you go to MOZ directly they try to update monthly but specific changes to sites may take several updates because they don't have as deep of reach as Google

      Yes they do!!! They update it every day and factor it into the ranking algorithm every single day! They just no longer export it for us to see what it is
      DA is what you need for SEO.
      No search engine uses DA as a metric in their ranking algorithm. It counts for nothing.
      You really are quite clueless about this aren't you?

    Page Authority measures the predictive ranking strength of a single page, Domain Authority measures the strength of entire domains or subdomains.

    It's all does not matter that much. What you need to be after is having a cool website. Get good content, start talking on forums and get lots and lots and lots of xrumer activites.

    all these indicatros - they are not that important.

    If you are talking about Google's page rank as web ranking factor then it already no longer exists. No one could used in SEO Link building. Just only make back-links on those sites which have good Domain Authority metrics nowadays. So those sites with a very large number of high-quality external links are at the top end of the Domain Authority scale, whereas small businesses and websites with fewer inbound links may have a much lower DA score. This DA scale is created by Moz. It predicts how well a website could be ranked on Search engines. The DA scale is lies between 1 to 100 score and in SEO 30+ DA scored websites are preferred as Good DA sites. So you can use Ahref, Moz Bar for DA scores of the sites.

  • I think Domain authority matters a lot for a Website... you can check the Example of Link Juice from MOZ..

    Also, Page authority is matter in some cases... but if you want to rank your website in SERP. Then, i suggest you work on both but target on Domain Authority.
