    I was using GSA to blast to a "test" site of mine. I was being a bit aggressive on the link building. Now when I look at AHREFS, my Domain Rank is Zero. Previously it was 42 or something.

    I don't have WMT installed on this domain, so I don't know if I got a penalty. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen. The URL rank is still good at 43. Could this potentially be a way to tell if we're being penalized by those of us not using WMT?

    All of mine recently went to 0 too. They have gone back to normal now though I have no idea why they all reset like that. It was strange because it was only happening on the domains I owned, I was getting paranoid actually because every other domain I tried was normal.

    ahrefs data is no way related to Google. So,I wont infer anything from domain rank 0.

    Something happened at ahrefs since about a month ago. Their data seems somehow more stale, or maybe they lost a chunk of their index, either way I'm pretty sure they had some technical issue.

    Yeah I saw that too. Sometimes different backlinks count and etc. They are having some technical issues I think. Don't be scary it's all right. :)

    Gotcha, I was just wondering, because I just slammed that site with links in the last few weeks. Maybe I broke their scale, like it hit triple digits and now reads zero lol.

    Actually, I just checked it again, and it's back to 46.
