    My company website has been up and running since late November. According to SEO MOZ my PA is 31 and my DA is 17.
    This is my first attempt at SEO and I was just wondering if I'm on the right track!

    Best.

    The only thing that actually matters is direct traffic and conversions...

    Don't get hooked on measuring meaningless stats; if your site isn't attracting real people who're converting at a reasonable percentage, then it's all just spreadsheets!

    I've had amazing rankings that don't make a penny, and page 5 rankings that make 000's per month. It's all down to the market and conversion.

    Don't take third party measurements too seriously. They're just very, very rough measurements and are hardly ever useful. What's important is your ranks and how they've progressed over the last few months.

    ... and ultimately how much money you've made. If your business made $500 last month and $700 this month then you're on the right track, however if you've made less money this month than you have the month before then you're doing something wrong regardless of how your site ranks or what your SEO stats say.

    Quality traffic counts - Are you getting sales, emails or phone calls?

    SEOMOZ DA and PA are all about link juice. Conversion is what matters.
