    I'm fairly new to IM and I want to know some stuff.
    For example which is better Domain Authority 30, or Domain Authority 1?
    What does PR -1 mean?
    Sorry For this useless thread, but maybe it will help some newbies like me to understand it better.

    The higher the domain authority the better. I believe it's on a scale of 1-100 and is based off domain age, popularity, and size.
    PR or Page rank is the rank that google gives to websites to determine the quality of the website. The ranking system is from 1-10 or N/A if it hasn't been ranked. Higher is better.

    Domain authority : Higher the domain authority better is the authority of the site
    PR ( Page Rank) : It is the measure of Google by which it ranks the sites based on complex algos. You can google it though. But in short higher the PR the better it is

    Google themselves do not have a page rank of -1.

    This is straight from their site

    "Why is it starting at -1?Normally the PageRank starts with 0 and ends with 10, but if the domain/url is still unknown to Google (in the sense of PageRank anyways), the PageRank check returns a -1. Other tools indicate this with a gray PageRank bar. After a domain is online for a while, it gets a PageRank of 0 from Google"

    If you are looking to buy domain be careful, there are more fake PR sites than real ones. Ofcourse, domain authority of 30 or higher and PR1 are best.

    Domain authority of 30 is much batter than 1. The higher the domain authority the batter your website. PR stands for page rank and 1 to 10 is the ranking of websites. Higher the rank means higher the visitors and show good website.

    PR isn't used by Google for ranking anymore, so I wouldn't worry about it; it's an artifact of an old algorithm.
