    Hi Guys,

    First time caller! :)

    I am sort of a newbie so please don't lynch me.

    I recently got my hands on an a domain with an amazing DA 63 with a PA of 69 on the frontpage, the domain had been resold so i immediately reestablished the pages which was linked to, not too many about 10 or so pages in subfolders and about 5-6 subdomains, so a quite easy job.

    Before buying the domain i did some extensive research on the linking domains about 1000 to the front page and less then a 100 to the sub pages.

    I then put up a new site which is rather large with about 7 languages, the frontpage links to each language which i put in subfolders like domain.com/fr the frontpage also link to the reestablished pages from archives.org.

    I sent new sitemaps to google who already indexed 500 pages our of 10.000 each subdir has its own sitemap and google webmaster console

    Now on paper this looks very well, high DA and PA but the even 301 redirected a few of the subdomain to one of the language dir's who are all linked together with hreflang

    My problem is non of my new subdirs are getting any PA and no traffic perhaps a big misunderstanding of mine, but i assumed i could get the subdirs to inherit some PA, but nothing happens.

    The inbound links are all very diverse however most of them are do-follow.

    Please help me with a little guru knowledge if anyone can spot my problem.

    Extra note, checked majestic and the trusflow figures here on the front-page are pretty nice too.

    PA isn't Trust Flow and it doesn't get inherited too much. I am not sure whether the PA even does take internal links into account. Still, DA/PA as I wrote in different thread yesterday:

    Still, DA is a "toy" metric. It's fairly irrelevant and very often really random. Site or web 2.0 with RD1 and 2000 backlinks (sitewide link) will often have pretty high DA/PA, even though it's nothing amazing, so I would rather focus on RD and TF. DA is way too sketchy and unreliable.

    Thanks Nargil, perhaps a rather big misunderstand from my side :) actually thought DA mattered :)

    Anyway looking at TF and CF on domain.com/locale, numbers look great even on the lower level directories. The problem i assume could be too few links with relevant anchors i guess? Just not sure where to set in... Do i build a lot of links to lower level directories or or is there anything internally i could do to get more trust flowing down site?

    Well you shouldn't give a damn about trust flowing and DAing and stuff :)

    All you have to care is about Google love, that's what matters. If you interlinked everything perfectly, then you can take a long good piss with "aaaaaaahhh..." on metrics. :)

    Yep, a lot of metrics are a complete load of shit. Majestic seems to get worse every year, showing links as "deleted" when they're clearly not and then playing with TF/CF accordingly. Really becoming quite useless... most of these tools are just a good way to get a quick glimpse if you have a lot of domains to analyze.
