    Hei,

    I encounter a funny thing with one of my websites. Usually, they get authority pretty quickly, even if the KW are not on top of Google.

    For this website, I built it all naturally (no link building at all) and most of my KW are now in position from 1 to 3 in medium/easy competition. My KW are not in English by the way.

    Funny stuff is that when I track my website in Moz for example, my site is still 1 PA and 1 DA.

    Any idea how I could change that??

    Thanks

    Moz has not crawled yet your links, so PA/DA you see are outdated.
    But why would you care of a MOZ metric when you rank #1?
    Cheers!

    Thanks for your answer!
    Well honestly I don't care that much all in all, but I am just wondering how much it can affect in the competition with other website targeting same KW

    It won't affect rankings competition at all. Google's algorithm doesn't use third party metrics like Moz. Like @BlackBDO said, who cares? You rank #1, that's what matters.

    You said you rank without creating backlinks (you probably have at least a few, even if you didn't manually create them, though). Third party metrics rely entirely on backlinks. You have very few, so Moz and others will give you low scores. Don't worry about it.

    You really do not want to bother about PA/DA as google does not work with that. But am sure if you have competitors with authority links, they can easily knock you out - But I might be wrong though.

    To increase your PA and DA you need to build quality backlinks because DA is based on your backlink profile. On the other hand PA is based on the sites that link to it.
