    If all the tools showed similar findings, the world would be a boring place.

    I have a site;

    Ahrefs; 3.2m, UR 20 DR 47

    Majestic; TF29 CF38

    However Moz shows it as;
    PA1 DA1 :rolleyes:

    As someone said, it takes time to update as its an average of 3 months. Check it at alexarankcheck.com and you will get daily report card. btw, I am not affiliated with this website alexarankcheck.com

    You should focus on your traffic, If your website has the good amount of traffic in regular basis then the Alexa metrics will be automatically updated with your favor.
