Moz DA/PA or Majestic TF/CF? Which one is more important?

by gianbizz 6 replies
We often want to know how strong a website is. There are 2 different metrics that attempt to measure this are DA/PA from Moz and TF/CF from Majestic.

Both help us make judgments about the usefulness of backlinks from a site in order to ensure their website ranks higher in search engines. But I found that many websites have high DA/PA but low TF/CF, or low DA/PA but high TF/CF.

So, which one you think more important between both of these metrics to measure the SEO quality of a website?

    The only thing either one is any good for is screening out obviously bad domains.

    Other than that, they can be far too inaccurate to make any decisions based on those metrics alone.

      I'd actually agree with that whereas I have never agreed they are totally worthless. I'd even go further and say Moz metrics are the worse even for that. They routinely miss good incoming links.

      As for why the OP posted this when he is already involved in making those decisions -

      How long will it be before google wipes out PBNs effectiveness by using these same auction lists that anyone can use to create sites like the OP's.

      all they have to do is take an expiring or auction list and disallow it (or weaken it) passing on any "juice" for a year or two. They take a looooooong time to make changes but when they do there is a lot of crying.

        I feel like Moz is getting worse rather than better.

        Financially, they are unstable and probably don't have the cash flow to dump into improving their technology. Just crawling the internet and storing links cannot be cheap.

        Rand is leaving and I believe he did a lot of the work on raising money from angel investors for them. Not sure what will happen down the road.

        I kind of expect by 2020 they will be more or less shut down.

          yep billions and trillions of pages. high cost and less people in SEO.

          Actually I don't expect SEO to survive more than a decade or two. It will shrink and be absorbed into something else. I'd already say its dead for some results. too much ad and noise on some results. ranking number one is at times close to or below the fold for those terms. thats on laptops. Its already a post organic world on wireless.

          Plus with all the garbage you see even here form "Seos" who wants to have that name as their main title anymore?

    Important for what?

    Google doesn't factor any of those metrics in when ranking websites. Those metrics can easily be manipulated with spam and PBN's too.
