    Hello guys,

    I had a PA of 17 just couple of days ago. Now, when I checked it was down to 1. Do you have any clue why is this happening?? I have no duplicate content on my page and I try to push my rankings in the serps using expired web 2.0...

    Btw, some of the posts are with PA 17 and some of them are not. Homepage is 1 at the moment and was 17 just 1-2 days ago..

    PA only relies on links. Maybe your site lost some backlinks.

    I checked all my backlinks and they are still the same. Maybe something went wrong with MOZ...

    You are right, maybe. But from 17 to 1 is a huge step down..

    It's a big step, but keep in mind PA/DA aren't updated often.

    There are many factors why PA and DA are dropping down, but you can always continue building quality links on your site and continue posting engaging and useful content to your target audience. They will increase naturally in time. After all, PA and DA are just a metric that shows how well your website has been properly optimized.
