    Before i used to think TF = links hard to get and therefore they will rank higher but ive been playing a while and most sites i got on pages 1-2 have TF=0 (but some CF) and these with TF are somewhere further.

    Do you use that metric?

    I only use this metric for judging the power of links pointing at the site. The actual overall TF from a site doesn't mean shit.

    Majestic's bots may not have fully crawled the links to your good ranking sites.

    Also TF is just a reference, a estimate. It's not a ranking factor.

    As bartosimpsonic said:
    It is not a ranking factor but it gives you a good feeling about how good your links are and how good your SERPs might get. The more TF the better and the TF/ CF ratio should be between 0.5-1.

    Revaluing links to get better TF on the money pages (or Tier 1 pages) is a hot topic now which I discuss here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/create-own-high-tf-da-pr-links.931614/
    Unfortunately nobody knows how to revalue backlinks to increase TF/DA/PR values.

    Why would you even care about valuing your TF? I have a site that is tf2 ranking in the top 5. And another site tf35 out of the top 100.

    It literally means nothing.

    Hahaha,
    Your absolutely right, TF is only a question of competition. You can rank as #1 with a TF of 5% when all your competion is below that 5%. On the other hand you get can on rank #100 with a TF of 35% when all (or the most) of your competition have a TF which is higher than 35%.

    Do some TF scans just like I did and you will see the correlation yourself.


    P.S. I have several pages with a TF of 30-35% and they are ranked on #40-50. But about 90% of their competitors above them have TFs values between 35-70!!! so the SERPs are fair.

    No you don't get it. TF isn't a question of competition at all, it is a question of how many links that a site has and what metrics they carry.

    This can be abused by people block bots and by juicing TF with spam. Both of these will obscure results on Majestic in comparison to the search results.

    Just look at the links, completely forget TF of the domain/page even exists. Just look at the TF of the links pointing to the page.

    So you can brag of having 120 TF score websites when selling them.

    Most PBN sellers rip you off on every level they can.

    Not all, but most.

    But yes, general niche pbn's are cancer

    And? If they silo it they'll just be building links on crappy pages. And plus the links will be coming from unrelated niche.

    It won't make one bit of difference if they silo the pbn. The links coming in will still be junk.
