    I'm noticing in OSE lots of domains getting different DA values now than they did just a few days ago, and mostly lower values. Anyone noticing that too? May have been a mass metrics update at MOZ, or a change in the way they compute DA?

    It's still my chief metric when going after expired domains for PBNs. Care to share your metric? Would be appreciated.

    Yes, I have noticed Moz PA/DA has been jumping almost everyday for the last 4-5 days or so. I extensively use Moz and so, I can also confirm that it is not only downward trend. I have to now check my lists very frequently as some are jumping up too. The dirt is getting filtered out quicker now.

    I find DA to be a good way to filter thru large lists of domains. Basically get DA for all domains in the list, then look at those with DA 20+ and keep the ones that have good backlinks and history. I find that DA is a good indicator for a domain's worth, provided the domain is not spammed. Spam inflates DA, but if a domain is clean, then the DA is accurate. I rarely look at domains with DA under 19: some may have good backlinks, but why get the DA 19 domain when you can keep the higher ones?

    I don't use Trust Flow much, mostly because you need a subscription to check the numbers of domains I check regularly. Is anyone going by TF alone or primarily?

    The only thing DA has been good so far is establishing link quantity, nothing on link quality.
