    Hey all,

    My website is quite new, its trust flow in MajesticSEO is ZERO so I am trying to push that up.

    I tried to get new backlinks so I got a couple of .edu backlinks on a PA 1 DA 98. (do-follow)

    Is that going to be effective to push my trust flow and my rankings in SERPs?


    Thanks.

    In simple words, DA is just the Page Authority (PA) of the home page.

    if da is 98, and pa1 then it may be a brand new page or.. add www infront of domain while checking again and it'll show a different PA :)

    No, web 2.0's like Wp have 100 DA and a link from one of them does basically nothing for your site. A combo of high pa and da is needed

    Is it?
    I always thought that DA was some type of 'rounded' value for the domain as a whole, functioning as an index value, much like the S&P500 is an index of a bunch of stocks all combined together, each having a different weighting on the overall index. Isn't that the case?

    Don't worry too much. It's is a good backlink. You can see youtube? If you see a video on Youtube, then you check DA, PA of this link; DA is high, but PA is very low.

    PA 1 and DA 98? Try checking both www and non www version of the domain.

    Well I don't know, but I guess a Stanford do-follow backlink is more worthy than a Youtube link? I think a .edu unspammed website is treated differently from a web 2.0 link (i.e. Youtube, ... ) Or What?

    Well get some links from higher authority sites, try some web 2.0s as well. It will surely increase some trust flow and domain authority as well.

    A PA of 1 either means that Moz hasn't updated their database to relect the authority of that page or the page has no backlinks. If the former is the case, then your site will benefit from the link. If the latter is the case, it will do nada for your site.
