    I actually thought there was some sort of glitch with the Moz toolbar on chrome.
    My sites haven't had a drop in PA or DA(nor a rise) but the one from the case study hasn't budged either, and is still at a PA of 1 after 6 weeks. Although it's still holding its position well in the serps so I'm not overly worried.

    I wouldn't worry about Moz at all. Its metrics are an opinion to be taken with a pinch of salt - similar to Alexa.

    It simply doesn't have the resources to monitor as much of, or on the same level as Google. Just as an example, it can't deal with Disavow files (which are submitted directly to Google only), so you have both no idea about many of the links a competitor has (because it doesn't index as much of the web as Google), and no idea about how many of those shown are disavowed.

    Who still uses moz ? it finds less than 1/4 of backlinks in comparison to ahrefs. How can they evaluate 'true' value in expression of metrics such as DA/PA based on less than 1/4 of the total backlinks domain has.

    Not sure if its an update or the after affect of the glitch they had, but noticed some change on a couple of domains.

    I second this. Ahrefs is way more accurate.

    It's true that ahrefs crawl backlinks faster but it' dr metrics suck
