    For a site with DA and PA beyond 20 that seems like a low trust flow and citation flow.

    445 backlinks
    Moztrust 6.26
    Mozrank 6.05
    spam score 0

    Because DA and PA absolutely do not depend on the TF/CF metrics. Most of the time, the more backlinks, the higher DA/PA. That's why are the Moz metrics quite sketchy and I do not consider them reliable. Or rather... I consider them less reliable than the TF/CF. Also, disregard CF, that metric is completely useless.

    Yet another example of the difference in the way Majestic and Moz deal with how they value backlinks.

    Majestic are generally showing much better stats when the backlinks are coming from a more quality source whereas Moz seem quite happy when the backlinks numbers are high. I would much rather deal with high TF domains than a domain with high DA or PA.

    Moz stats are good when selling domains to people who are lesser experienced or living in the past, it is kind of like when so many people were still dealing with PR in 2015 despite it not having been updated since 2013.

    Because MOZ loves spammy links. And they will give you higher DA PA to make you smile and happy.

    Absolutely, the domain in question, bflg.net, was obviously part a a huge casino related link trade/spam network in Japan(?!). 2 minutes looking at a few sample backlinks and you'll never think about this domain again.

    CF and TF ratio must be very low for a good website. Approximately it is 1 to 1.5. If pages of your site has high authority, then the domain authority leads to high as much as possible.
    Using social networks to increase these metrics with more effectively to increase the ranking of DA as well as PA.

    To increase CF and TF , your site should have a quality inner page with more content.
    Buy a couple of links from a real website,citation flow increases depends on your site or blog.
    I think building high quality back links is the key to increase your trust flow,or else have a back link from a site with high authority then it helps to increase your TF.

    So Moz just looks at the amount of sites.

    What is the reason that someone might not want to consider CF?

    CF is not a completely useless metric. It's very useful if you understand what it is telling you.

    So what it is telling me that I cannot see from backlinks themselves? I am really interested in what you have to say.
