What is the effect of a backlink in a low DA/PA site?

Hello!

I work in the "clothes for babies" niche and more and more moms are starting their blogs. Many of them contact my e-commerce to build a partnership.

Unfortunately, mostly of these blogs are recent ones and their Domain Authority as well as their Page Authority are really low comparing with the others blogs that I've already built a long-term partnership.

In these "newborn blogs" I have the opportunity to put links to my store directly on their content, what increases the relevance of this linking building. But at the same time I think that as they do not have a relevant authority it would be useless creating backlinks in these blogs when talking about SEO because even the small ones can give me some traffic.

So my question is: if I have the opportunity to put a link to my store in one of these blogs is it worthy? Or it will just low my rankings because their relevance is really low?

Thanks in advance.

    Google does not look at or care about DA or PA.

    The links will either help you or have little to no effect. They won't hurt.

    just because the domain authority is low doesnt discredit the fact that its still a relevant link.
    I dont think it will lower your ranking over all, but it wont give you a ranking boost either as the links wont be carrying much juice / authority from that page.

    Have you heard of death by a thousand cuts?

    This is winning by a thousand links.

    Sites grow over time. A low Authority blog today can be a powerhouse tomorrow.

    Look at them in terms of their potential.

    Do they post regularly?
    Do they have a great blog design?
    Is their content high quality?
    Have they targeted a specific segment of the mom niche?

    It's your call. Look for growth as opposed to the right now.

    Everyone started from somewhere. It's those that refused to give up and put in the effort that we still hear about.

      Daniel, these were the questions that I've made myself and on all of them the answer was positive. I thought the same that it is really nice to invest now in this small blog because in the next months the site will grow and them I'll have a link there.

      Thanks!

    That isn't really true. DA and PA are highly inaccurate. You can't really judge that a link is weak by just looking at DA and PA.

    Hi,
    Actually, I don't care about DA/PA. If your activity is good, Then you can get a good backlink from every website. But if you don't work good, then you can't get a backlink from high authority website.
