Hi,

Do you know how many links from DA 30 equals 1 link from DA 40? or how many links from DA 40 equals 1 link from DA 50?

Thanks.

If you are trying to figure this out, you clearly do not understand how worthless DA is for measuring the strength of a link.

• What Mike said.

Because your focus should be on page performance (Google ranks pages not sites) and because DA is a metric MOZ came with out to benefit MOZ (they sell DA-related stuff; which, if you buy, accomplishes one thing, and one thing only: designates you as the guppy and MOZ as the shark).

Worry about back links, internal and external and getting visitors to your pages, forget DA and PA exist.

• Man, you guys are no fun at all. I was going to post a ridiculous answer like 7.6. Anyone who believes this is a real "thing" will pretty much believe whatever number you throw at them.

Now, let's get to far more important questions like how many licks does it really take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop (Mr. Owl can't be trusted)?

• Tootsie Roll's easy: tested it myself: 3728 licks. I kid you not.

• It is not possible to accurately determine the value of one link compared to another in terms of the domain authority (DA) of the linking website. Domain authority is a measure of the strength and credibility of a website, and it is determined by a number of factors, including the quality and quantity of links pointing to the website, the age of the website, and the presence of strong and relevant content.

In general, it is generally considered more valuable to have a few high-quality links from websites with a high domain authority than to have a large number of low-quality links from websites with a lower domain authority. However, the specific value of a link from a particular website will depend on a variety of factors and can vary significantly.

It is important to note that the focus should be on building a strong and diverse link profile, rather than trying to quantify the relative value of individual links. A well-rounded link profile can help to improve the visibility and credibility of a website in search engines, which can ultimately lead to increased traffic and revenue.

• I am going to disagree with you. You're right, that's what MOZ, the outfit that came out with the DA, PA things says.

But did you ever look at the 23 criteria they use? One of them is domain shortness... As in, Etsy.com is bad because too short, so cannot ever attain 100.

So is Amazon.com.

So are most of the sites that rank the best for things ... Google.com, Bing.com. eBay.com,

The fact that they believe that anything in the domain name affects ranking is enough for me to discount their entire methodology.

• The interesting thing is that a too-long domain name counts against the site too. There is, it seems, the just-right length, and that conveys trust.

In other words, it's a nice tool, if you're MOZ and want another thing to sell people. Otherwise, it's a waste of time to pay attention to it. Except that MOZ knows people want a crutch and that, in the absence of a real one, they'll take (and pay) for a fake one.

Wrong.
MOZ do NOT use those in the DA calculations.

• The kind of backlink you are building for your website is more important than DA. Even there are lots of sites that have thousands of traffic and good traffic value but have low DA. But the link juice that you get from these sites is more beneficial than those sites which have high DA PA but no traffic.

• Nobody can really answer this question.
Do you care about DA or rankings?
