    Recently got their paid access, and have started to use them more frequently, anyone else notice that the trust flow/citation flow numbers just changes like all the time? Every day you go there for almost each site you get a bit different result, and sometimes it changes even in 1hour several times, sometimes it goes from for example 22TF to like 15TF in like an hour...
    WTF???
    using their site to analyze expired domains, but I can't do anything if those scores are jumping all around like that !

    It shouldn't change that fast. Are you sure you are putting the same url everytime? Like using www.example.com and example.com will give you different results. Even adding http://www.example.com will show different values of TF/CF.

    It's not changing, usually it's the way you've inputted your URL... even slashes/ make a difference sometimes. It's pretty stupid, they should just give the result of the highest one either way to save us all time analyzing domains. Or maybe even a button to turn it on/off if you're meticulous.

    You have 4 options to choose from on the drop down menu next to the search field (root domain, subdomain, path url, url).

    Also there is the historic index.

    Yes this happened also to me, but in the last weeks it is getting better. Maybe you should contact the support?

    Yeah, the naked, www, https www, and naked https versions of your domain all give different results.

    I don't use Majestic any more, although I'd assume the canonical URL would provide the "most accurate" metrics. Well, as accurate as their 3rd party metrics can get anyway.

    You guys are missing the point here... Obviously the naked, www, https www, and naked https versions will give different results.
    BUT- i'm not even talking about that.. the same Version WWW just gives way different results several times per day..

    Contacted support- and they played it dumb and seems like doesn't wants to invistigate,yet just give me bullshit standard answers to questions I didn't even asked..



    And yes it IS changing drasticly...
    Just try it out yourself, input some of your website urls in there,note down the results and go check the results tomorrow ;)

    I didn't miss any point as my last post wasn't a response to your problem; I was confirming what Henry04 said regarding variations between the different URLs (not that it's your issue).

    As for your issue, that's certainly strange. Their FAQ page states that their metrics are supposed to recalculate every index update. I tried searching for the issue, but I couldn't find anyone experiencing the same problem.

    Anyway, I noted down the results of one of my URLs. I'll let you know if it changes tomorrow.

    Yep, TF is flawed anyway, pretty much like PR was, since it doesn't tell you anything about how many really good links a site has. A low TF site can have a bunch of awesome links, a high TF site can have just one good link, at the end of the day you can't tell without looking at the actual links. The lower the total number of links, the less reliable TF becomes. It's just an indicator. I wouldn't buy a domain based on this metric without further examination, no matter how high TF is. Again, it's much like PR was. You were able to get PR6 with just one PR7 link and a PR5 site could have had a backlink profile that's 100 times better and stronger.
