    I have checked a client's website and saw that their PR is 1 for some years but their Moz Rank is 4.75. I don't understand this. Could you help, please?

    Is the site ranking for the KWs you are targeting?

    That would be more my concern than what a third party was indicating.

    Because PR hasn't been updated in more than a year.

    This should be a default reply whenever a new topic concerning pagerank is posted.

    FORGET PAGERANK!!!

    I prefer to use the Majestic metrics.
    Arent the Moz ones too easy to fool with spam?

    Third party metrics are so fucking over rated. Especially domain authority.

    LOL @ the people still using pagerank in any of their thought processes. As BassTracker Boats noted, pagerank has not been updated in a very long time and Google said they don't plan on updating it ever again.

    PR hasn't been updated in a LONG time and those 3rd party metrics leave a LOT to be desired! They are very easily gamed yet every SEO magician out there spouts them as gospel.

    The sites still ranks for the keywords, but the ones used were not very strong (100 searches per month).

    How then should we measure the strength of a website if not mozrank, PA and DA are used anymore?

    It's not that they aren't used, it's that they are just pieces of the puzzle, not the key to the vault. I suspect Google is actually still updating PageRank or its current equivalent, just no longer making the rankings public. What's most important is that the metrics are separate from Google, so we're free of Google's whims regarding what they will or will not reveal to us. Think of PA/DA/TF as ways to tell if a page has acquired authority in general, but this important component is not the final arbiter of how high the page ranks for the keyword.

    Between the three, it is now much easier to establish and measure the basic authority of any page---as simple as launching 5-10 free blogs on top Web 2.0 properties (giving you a starting DA of 80+ per property), putting a few dozen high PA backlinks to each, then pointing the now high PA/DA/TF properties to your website to rank it for your keyword. That versatility is a vast improvement on the more hit and miss PR building days of yore.

    3rd party metrics is all we have until something replaces them

    Using anything from Google these days tells us nothing

    web sites these days are being ranked either by brand or authority, I don't see anything from Google showing you any authority
    but the 3rd party tools make an attempt at showing you what an authority site looks like

    As others mentioned PR hasn't been relevant for quite some time and hasn't been updated in years (coming in at 2?).

    MozRank is a pretty crappy metric but by using a combination of other link data metrics you can come close to gauging link quality.
