    This are metrics to undestand the value of a domain. But attention, you need to check the link popularity profile before say if a domain is authoritative or good quality.
    These metrics alone say little, you have to analyze every aspect of the content of the backlink and Trust Rank that Google has in relation to a website.

    In any case there is a demonstration that quality sites (for users and for search engines) have these very high values​​.

    They are some pretty useless metrics which can be manipulated. The backlink profile is what matters.

    This is true, I never point my attention to this metrics, are only numbers and are 100% precise only if we're talking about big sites like tumblr, blogger, wordpress etc

    DA and PA are bullshit metrics made up by Moz assholes. To be a part of Moz, you need the douchiest image you can come up with. That's the only way you can be a part of the 1337 Moz crew.

    Like this guy. He's a perfect Moz candidate:

    This. They can get you an "average" idea about your website as long as you didn't do anything to manipulate those stats, but don't trust them when it comes to buying domains.
