MOZ PA & DA broken for new Top Level Domains

    I have bought quite a few domains with the new TLD's like (.guru, .directory, .expert, .tips). However something that I have started to notice is that the Page Authority and Domain Authority on all of them remain at 0. It doesn't matter how many links (or the quality of links) I build to them, they stay at 0. So I decided to do a search for all domains with ".guru" to see if it was just my sites, or if it was a wider problem.

    Result - I couldn't find a single one with a PA or DA above 0.


    I also did a test where I bought a package here on BHW and sent them to both a brand new .com and a .guru. The result (after a couple of months) - the .com now has a PA of 22 and a DA of 10. The .guru is sitting at 0 and 0 (the .guru is older and has more links).

    So I contacted MOZ support and asked if there was a bug. The answer was that it was all good and everything was working fine. I struggle to believe it, I suspect that unless you are someone like Barry Schwartz or Danny Sullivan, you will never get someone to actually go and look into a problem in any real detail.

    My question is this - Can someone else who has worked on a site with a new TLD report back and tell me if they actually have a PA or DA above 0 (or not). I just want to see if it is just me.

    Thanks :)

    Some domains need more time, I have to wait for almost 3 months to get my da pa.
    Don't worry you will get your da pa rank.

    They are slow with the updates, also you need a lot of social signal so they not miss to clawed your site.

    Most of people cares, it gives you a sense of how your site and domain is doing.
    And I people care if they are trying to build a PBN or selling blog posts.

    Really?
    DA PA is shit
    PR is shit
    TF CF is shit
    ahrefs rank is shit

    Tell me then what is not shit?
    They are to many haters here and most of the people are just saying shit because they heard it from someone else.

    The reason these guys are saying that PR,PA/DA,TF/CF,Ahrefs Rank and any other metric are shit is because they can easily be manipulated with spam.
    The only thing that matters is the backlink profile.

    not sure, if it holds true. Let me have a look at few of my sites. I think it should not be the case ideally.

    If you can't get the DA or PA of domains with those extensions, use an alternative tool. Ahrefs is a superior alternative.

    Just a thought, make sure you do not leave a space after the URL when searching. I have done this a few times and it results in a PA, DA of 0

    Moz is slow.
    Ahrefs is one of the better ones.
    BUt as others have said, spam can easily change them.

    TF can not be manipulated with cheap spam, you need good links from authority sites to improve it.
