    Which one of these would you consider to have the most authority?

    - A PR6 site with a very low trust flow around 5-10.
    - A PR1 site with a trust flow somewhere in the 30s.

    What is the best measurement of authority when it comes to a web site? Google
    no longer publicly updates their PR, so we can't really gauge authority solely on that.

    What's pr? thought google stopped it over a year ago?
    how about trust flow? didn't know google started using trust flow in their ranking? could someone please tell me when it happened?

    I always thought that a good website is a website which provides valuable info, has real visitors and ranks in search engines... didn't know it was all about tf/da/pa/pr and whatever else you've created.

    A backlink metric is better than no metric at all.. because most of us know that Google
    doesn't rank sites based solely on valuable information or visitors. They rank sites primarily
    on backlinks. Ever heard of a backlink? It is what Google values more than any content.

    - A PR6 site with a very low trust flow around 5-10. <-- Most likely not a legit PR6 site with a Homepage TF of 5-10.
    - A PR1 site with a trust flow somewhere in the 30s. <-- Could be a legit site, but maybe spammed. Obviously PR hasn't been updated since Dec 2013 so take that into consideration.

    The second one simply because PR is no longer updated often and a pr6 with low trust flow may simply mean a poor pr.

    As long as the TF and CF are even or the TF is better than the 2nd one all day ;)

    How many referring domains does the PR1 site have ?
