    Anyone else noticed the Moz API isn't returning PA at the moment?

    They have a page where you can see when their system is down. And it's down all the time judging by what I saw there last time.

    That doesn't report any issues with their API displaying PA.

    It's been up and down for the past few days. I hope it stays that way.

    MOZ not stable at the moment. I am a havy MOZ api user and been failing getting PA/DA . Seems working for past few hours. But had time outs time to time. Hopefully they will fix soon.

    I have no idea how Moz makes so much $ off of old school marketing being shown as a "discipline" o SEO. It's just 1990's Kotler books being shown by the Ste Fishkin copycat.

    I find moz rank metric quite useful, when bulk filtering 100,000 domains at a time.

    I have found my blog DA dropped from 15 to 1 in one night. Not sure if its real or not. Pletty scary.

    I use Majestic for that,

    DA = number of backlinks.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Moz stable right now. I am a big fan of DA + PA.. Some people say it can manipulate easily. True..it can easily manipulate with gsa ser links. So we can manipulate Google rankings too ;)

    I might be misunderstanding you, but in case I'm not, Google does not use Moz DA/PA as a ranking factor. Moz can't crawl anywhere near the amount of sites Google can, and Moz doesn't have the resources to extrapolate the kind of information Google would need to rank websites. Moz's data would be redundant to Google at best.

    I never claimed they could but I guarantee you that Google and Moz both crawl the top million sites. Thus my assertion on redundant data. Both Moz and Google want to crawl the highest value sites because that's the best use of their capital. So while Moz might have some sites in their index that Google doesn't, I'd doubt them to be of any significantly high value.
