    MOZ latest DA/PA is now released and I'm still shocked seeing my high page authority blogs now having a DA/PA of 1. Let me know guys if you can also see the same metrics. I've tried using different DAPA checker, tried changing IPs but still the same. Other web 2.0s in my list have the same high domain authority but these 3 Tumblr, Weebly, and Wikidot are now DAPA 1.

    PS

    The sites I have mentioned above have still high TF and CF, but their DA PA stats are now really 1. I have also seen a dropped of DA PA for Livejournal, Over-Blog, even the popular wordpress.com?

    What web 2.0s? PA checker you used? I'm still getting PA of 1 for the major Web 2.0s checked using MOZ OSE tool and other online services.

    Hmmm, I'm really concern about PA because I used to sell these high PA blogs, now that the PA of majority of these Web 2.0s as well as its backlinks became 0 I don't have a choice but to refund my clients payment until I've found a good explanations that these kind of backlinks still work or not. I will know if it still effective as I'm also using these links on my sites and will definitely track the changes of my keyword rankings because for the previous months I'm getting good results with high PA web 2.0 backlinks.

    Well even I personally believe that I should not rely only on MOZ metrics as there are other important metrics that we can used to check the value of a link such as using TF/CF from MOZ and UR from Ahrefs. Well thanks for your feedback guys.

    You must have to use Google instead of MOZ because Google is the best.
    Web 2.0 doesn't work very good but other that you mentioned work better.

    Just switch your product to TF/CF until MOZ sort themselves out. It's very unlikely that something big happened with a Google update killing such prominent Web 2.0s and MOZ being the only ones to notice. This is probably some MOZ algo update, but not really a Google update. Track how your links work and just rebrand them so you are not dependent on MOZ.

    Tested some of my expired Tumblrs I've brought back to life, Moz does not even show their links anymore which definitely still are there.

    Ah yes this isn't good news for you. However you have to realize that nothing changed with the ranking structure or methods. It is still the exact same. The links point to the Tumblr blog, which give it power, which you want to leverage towards your page. It's just that now we cannot use Moz any longer to check how many links the blog has or how much PA. The solution is to use another tracking tool.

    I think Moz's system is just messed up. Doesn't matter. Web 2.0's otherwise I wouldn't be ranking because that's all I've used on some sites.

    It's just moz and their shitty metrics. I would suggest majestic for filtering, not moz.

    Compare it with TrafficTravis or another provider, some settings reveal different results.

    In all honesty MOZ has different metrics which could be having an error right now so either wait to check or use different software.

    Moz's PA/DA is only an estimate of how much authority your pages/sites have.. only thing that counts is whether or not Google thinks your site has authority. And even if not, if it still bring large amounts of targetted traffic, it's still valuable.

    This update from Rand Fishkin @ Moz last week suggests the metrics for 2.0 sites would be fixed. They have not and nor does it appear they will be.

    An update - we've got a fix released now, and the metrics should be back and correct for those sites. Unfortunately, the actual lists of links that point to those sites and the metrics for their internal pages isn't recoverable, and will be erroneous until our next index (in ~30 days). Very sorry about that.


    Just prior to this Fishkin had this to say:

    "This was an error on our part. There was an effort to put domains with more than 10,000 subdomains on a blacklist, as 99% of these were spam. However, there wasn't a careful review of the domains going on, and thus, domains like Quora, Wikia, Etsy, and those you've mentioned, along with some others, were put on this blacklist :-( I'm pretty upset about it, as there should have been a review process. We'll see what we can do -- hopefully have a fix soon or revert to our previous index"

    My hunch is this will never happen.

    Donot trust any moz metrics at all. Their link crawler is lame and hardly finds any backlink. Always check the backlinks on ahrefs or if really want to check metrics, then go with TF - CF (Majestic).

    I wouldn't go around refunding people in this situation. There is clear evidence that the strategies you employ continue to be productive. In fact, almost everyone has confirmed that.

    Just explain the situation to customers IF they ask, and then refund the truly objecting parties. Anyone who bought your product/service with a long-term view of SEO know this type of stuff goes with the territory, and they will likely also know these MOZ anomalies have little or nothing to do with how the sites are actually ranking. If you want to be proactive you could communicate your concerns to customers, but I think this invites people's natural tendency to exploit a way to get something for nothing.

    I think you likely provided the true value you intended in your product/service offering, and I could sleep well at night if I were in your shoes even without communicating anything to customers about it, but I certainly wouldn't indiscriminately refund every recent purchase. I probably would adjust my listings or sales page to reduce reference to MOZ altogether.

    Probably just a minor glitch (Minor used for lack of a better term).
