    Brief elaboration of them all to people in need.


    • PA (Page Authority) - Is Moz's calculated metric for how well a given webpage is likely to rank in Googles results page.
    • DA (Domain Authority) - Is Moz's best prediction for how a site will perform in search engine rankings.
    • CF (Citation Flow) - Is weighed by the number citations to a given URL or Domain.
    • mT (MozTrust) - Is similar to TrustRank and estimates the distance from trusted seeds, using PageRank like calculation.
    • mR (MozRank) - Is a metric for link popularity score.
    • TF (Trusted Flow) - Is weighed by the number of clicks from a seed set of trusted sites to a given URL or Domain.

    PA, DA, mR and mT are Moz's terms from their Open Site Explorer. PA and DA are scaled on a 100-point system, whereas mR and mT are a 10-point system. Obviously 0 being bad and 10/100 being great. DA and PA are easy metrics that I hope everyone on here understand. But mT and mR are not as common for a newbie to know about. mR is higher when the numbers of linkage and quality are high. mT is the link distance between site X to a trusted page that it links to. On Moz, they compare it to the six degrees of separation; where everyone in this world are 6 degrees from knowing everyone (so for the current readers who are reading this, I technically know you through a friend of a friend of a friend whos friends of a friend of yours...:bike:).

    CF
    and TF are MajesticSEO, known as Flow Metrics, terms from their Site Explorer. But lets understand this a little bit more. Citation flow, as you can logically guess, is a prediction on how reliable your site is based on the number of sites linking to your site. Now comes Trust flow, where CF will be verified. TF is a number predicting how trustworthy a page is based on how trustworthy the sites that are linking to are. Values are from 0 - 100. 0 being bad to 100 being great.

    Hope some of yous found it useful.:)

    NICE TITS.

    How can a newbie in online marketing classify those metrics as useless without knowing anything about them?

    If they plan to become an SEO freelancer or some other online marketing service provider, they sure as hell have to know about mT, CF, Tf etc. so they can educate their future clients that the metrics don't mean shit.

    Its only knowledge used as a selling point.. I guess.
