    Hello friends,
    I am creating BLs for one of my site. Till yesterday, ahrefs was showing PA=41 and DA=52. But today, when I checked on ahrefs, it is showing PA=12 (huuuuge drop that does not look natural) and DA=52. Also RD=220 but none is showing in their graph. Please see the picture.

    Please also note that at G-search, the site is still ranking good for one of the main KWs.

    I am new at SEO, so I request to respected SEO masters here to help me to find the reason why ahrefs.com decreased the PA of my saite all of a sudden.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If you ask me all it matters is your ranking so if thats good i wouldnt be too worried about PA DA ...But looking at your chart i think youre building links too fast

    check your url structure, the complete url with any trailing slash at the end tend to me a difference on ahrefs.

    Your back links are rocketing so be careful and slow down a bit.

    I was just about to say this happens in ahrefs a lot so don't worry about it it is just a glitch. If it happens again have a look at your competitors on ahrefs it will be down to :)) I had url rank of 0 the other day from 38 then an hour later back to 38
