    I found an expired domain on DOMCOP that says its CF 27 TF 15, but Majestic says CF 9 TF 6.

    I tested another site and DOMCOP says CF 19 TF 19, but Majestic says CF 5 TF 9.

    Who is right?

    I would say it is the difference between www.domain.com and domain.com or even http://domain.com and http://www.domain.com.

    There are multiple ways you can check for it and they will all give very different amounts. I have a service which checks for it and I have it set to detect the highest figure as that is what the user of a domain could be getting.

    I don't know if that is the reason for the difference but it would make sense.

    jimbobo2779 is correct. We decide whether the domain has back links to the www subdomain or the root domain and show the relevant metrics.

    You can try looking at the the Majestic metrics for both yourdomain.com and www.yourdomain.com and you will find that DomCop shows the one that has the higher TF.

    Additionally, our metrics are updated multiple times while the domain passes through our system. If you'd like you can see a schedule here - https://www.domcop.com/faq/domain-metrics-update-schedule
