    DA, Domain Authority. PA, Page Authority. They are (limited) metrics that gauge the 'power' of a site/page. In general, higher DA/PA will perform better in the SERPS. Though, it's important to understand that these metrics are just one piece of the ranking puzzle. DA/PA can also be heavily influenced by spam and thus often not provide an accurate picture of the health and ranking potential of a site/page.

    DA = Domain Authority, how authoritative the domain is based on links to it.
    PA = Page Authority, how authoritative the page is based on links to it

    Both by moz.com

    It has nothing to do with rankings in google since it's not a metric made by google.

    DA = Domain authority

    Both are Moz Metrics.

    What is PA? (Page Authority)
    Page Authority is a score (on a 100-point scale) developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engines

    What is DA?( Domain Authority)
    Domain authority is a measure of the power of a domain name and is one of many search engine ranking factors. Domain authority is based on three factors: Age, Popularity, and Size

    What is CF? (Citattion Flow)
    A metric designed to predict how influential a link in a site might be, by considering the links pointing to it. It does not bother about the quality of links. If there are more domains pointing to a blog post, then the more influential it is

    What is TF? (Trust Flow)
    A metric designed to decide how trustworthy the link is. Based on the QUALITY of backlinks pointing to the site

    What is RD? (Referring domain)
    Referring domains is the total no. of domain linked to a website.

    by increasing PA, DA only you cant get higher rank in search engine. Concentrate on other factors as well

    Why everyone needs to keep reiterating the same shit about PA/DA is beyond me. The question has been sufficiently answered.,

    Oh, and @sexcare, stop spamming the forum, asshole.

    I can't believe that you've registered here just to spam your adult site. Please, shitty tricks like sexy profile pics or no-dot urls will not work here. What about you read few BHW topics in order to know how to seo? And not just stupid things like that.

    Lmao Thanks for the explanation guys!

    So the PA and DA is just a way to tell if a blog is an authority or not. Tell me if I'm wrong, it's good for backlinks right?

    Hello OP,

    DA is Domain Authority and PA is Page Authority which is designed by MOZ. Both has the maximum metric range which is 100. Google will decide which one comes at first, by DA. Coz, this is the metric which defines the power/ strength of the domain. Google predicts the power of the each page in a domain by PA. So the links to the pages which are more strong will be ranked well.
