    What is the minimum score to a site be considered a "hight quality" site in you opinion? How much should be "Moz DA" and "Ahrefs DA" score?

    In my research, in find that site with Moz DA > 30 and Ahrefs DA > 44 can be considered hight quality.

    I'm asking this because I'm buying link from blog posts, and I want to find the lowest grade with "quality", so I can optimize my budget (the lower the grade, is cheaper to get my links posted)

    That depends on how you define a high quality site. If a high quality site to you is one that is trustworthy, provides relevant information that its visitors find useful, and provides a good overall user experience, then there is no minimum number.

    I totally agree with that being a better definition of quality. Another thing I would add is that those metrics are pretty easy to manipulate. You can EASILY get those numbers up with blasts from GSA. Be careful buying links based solely on DA.

    Site ranking for more keywords is the quality one

    If you only go by metrics, you are bound to miss out on great domains with great links. Those metrics are not foolproof.

    Those stats can easily be manipulated, the quality of your website depends upon how good your contents are.

    I know that you can manipulate these metrics, but I will check their backlinks to see if there aren't spam.


    The point is that as there are a lot of sites/blogs to buy links from, I have to have some metric to help me choose which site/blog I will buy from. And to know if a site is asking too much for the price.


    I'm looking to Moz DA and Ahrefs DA beacause they are updated (different then PR toolbar), and I can simulate how much "juice" each site is giving me.


    So will I change my question:
    Which metrics/aspects you guys would use to verify if its worth to buy a link from a site? And how do you know if its overpriced?

    Sorry to say it but google doesn't use those metrics.
    i do use moz to check the links though and even most of my pbn sites manage to score 30+ there.

    many will argue but I find Alexa rank more important than imaginary moz BS.
