    Simply means that most of the links this domain has go to subpages or maybe just one subpage, could a a popular PDF, a blogpost that went viral, whatever. Using them for a PBN is a little more ticky since you'll have to rebuild the subpages if you don't want to lose most juice. A 404 to 301 (mainpage) will often be seen as a soft 404 by Google, which means the links are taken out of the link graph, something you absolutely want to avoid.

    It means, the page could be new, thin content, doesn't have many links pointing to it and hosted on a new domain, etc..

    As long as you add more content & build quality links, the page authority will get increased.

    I think the Domain was aged but the contents in articles will be in low quality.
    Or the links may refer to the subpages of the article.So,try to build quality backlinks to get more linkjuice.

    As other suggest here, build more links to that page and you'll get the updated PA soon.

    I would say ignore PA and other shit.

    Look only for HQ & clean backlinks to that domain.

    Increase your Page Bakclinks , BackLinks are the number one way to increase page authority. Page will have more links from other sites linking to it.

    Optimize Internal Links, Links from the other page also matter to improve your PA.

    Increase Social Media, Most of them use social media this will start weighting the authority of the page and the site.

    Improve Page Content, Page Contenet is the main factor to improve the PA, Search engine tends to rank quality content first.

    Improve Page Bounce Rate, People stay on your page for more time will helps to improve your page bounce rate. Now the search engine confirms the ability of your page.

    Thses steps will increase the PA, With this one you should also concentrate on the DA.

    Maybe the domain is old with thin content.
    Try to add some good content and build some quality backlinks.

    As you are checking root domain and the PA is low that could just mean that the old owner of the domain was targeting www.domain.com so the highest PA would be at that variant.

    You can check the PA for the following to get an idea of what would be best to have as your homepage:
    http://domain.com
    http://www.domain.com
    http://www.domain.com/index.php
    http://domain.com/index.php
    http://domain.com/index.html
    http://www.domain.com/index.html

    PA is Page authority so it is only indicative of that page's "quality".

    I would much rather look at the Majestic stats of a website though as Moz's stats are too easy to manipulate and do not take quality of links into consideration as much as Majestic's stats do. Majestic Trust Flow is a good indicator of quality of a domain/website.

    Perhaps Rand Fishkin just hates you.

    Unless you are selling or buying links, PA/DA does not matter a wank.

    Just make sure to recreate the old pages when setting up the domain and you'll do okay.

    As others stated above, it means most of the links aren't going to the homepage. If you look up the most linked pages in ahrefs, and check the PA of each page, you'll find the highest PA in there instead of the usual situation where the homepage has the highest PA.

    Maybe the page is new or PA could be either non-www or www version. But, high PA help a page to rank but if you have high DA you can rank all the pages of your website.

    Try to build some quality links to improve your PA.Though your domain is aged may have low quality content, so add some unique content and update it regularly to rank your PA of page.
