    Hi, I'm analyzing domains with Moz, using the program Netpeak but I'm not getting accurate results. The program says for example that the domain has 100 backlinks but when I check this in Moz website, the results are totally different. Also it applies for DA, PA and such metrics. I've also used other tools for checking Moz metrics and also the results are often not accurate. Anyone with the same problem?

    Should I get an Ahrefs account better? I have a Moz account with 4 months free so I pay nothing... lol

    Thanks.

    Checking with Netpeaker mostly does not show the metrics correctly and if you want or need to to rely on correct metrics, the problem is, you would need a combination of different tools (MOZ, ahrefs, Majestic), if you want accurate metrics...

    could it be webmaster blocked other bots to crawl? since moz invented DA/PA, it would be better to say other are not accurate except moz

    Moz is utter shite, never picks up half the links other backlink checking services do, no idea why people seem to lap up their da/pa metrics

    Maybe I'll buy an Ahrefs subscription with the 50% discount, because I hate Moz.

    I finally bought an Ahrefs subscription at half of the price... Is worth it! I will only pay for the months I use it. Then, I will use a coupon again lol
