    What is more valuable when it comes to getting backlinks. Would you rather have a high page rank site with low page authority or a high authority site with a page rank of 1. What does google value more?

    Both are faulty.
    PR is probably more accurate.
    PA doesn't really take in account OBL, a ton of spam to high PR blog comments can give you a high PA.

    Even Matt will not answer that one.

    Well if he does than do exactly the opposite of what he says.

    Page Rank is used by Google and it is not updated on purpose,you may see Page Rank 4 ,this maybe the right PR two or months ago but now is different.
    on the other hand Page authority is used by Seomoz site which is more accurate and updated more often than PR.

    Google PageRank and Page Authority are both valuable metrics in determining link popularity. Page rank is still more valuable.
