    Did you know that there is more to SEO metrics than Domain Authority?

    If this isn’t your first tango with SEO, you’ve probably been introduced to tons of other metrics out there with no shortage of conveniently used acronyms. DA, PA, KD, CF, TF just to name a few.

    Some metrics are more relevant than others but, in the end, they are all here to help us during our SEO endeavors. Understanding them will help you on many different levels. Background check a blog before doing blogger outreach or check the progress of your on-page SEO efforts.

    The trick is in using them correctly and efficiently. And to do that you kind of need to know how to interpret them and which metric hides behind which acronym.

    If you wanted to see all of them neatly sorted and explained – this is the right place. Hey, even Majestic approves ;)

    I would explain a few things differently and disagree with a few minor details, but overall, well explained for newbies.
