    I need some advice, what is better a good DA or PA? I know that both play a major factor on Rank and Trust, but what would be more suitable to have in order to help rank/boost a brand new site?

    Would really appreciate the feedback. Thanks

    I tend to value DA slightly more than PA. Higher DA = More overall trust of an entire site which means more individual pages are more likely to rank.

    I also tend to favor DA metric more than PA also it's more widely used because of Moz.

    Do external links play a major factor on trust, the more external links the more my DA is valued as trustworthy?

    Let's say i have 100 internal links and 10k external links, would that play a factor?
    Does moz read that as 'hey this site has a bunch of high quality value links, its trustworthy'?

    This might have been better in the BH or WH sections ... or is this a forum suggestion?

    I was trying to find the best topic to post the question in, wasn't intentional. I just wanted some advice.

    Decided to come back to this. I've done a little more research and have learned all factors play a role in how your site is ranked.

    I prefer to have a better DA with quality content and strong resourceful back links than cheap backlinks with no relevancy to my topic.
