    I am seeing a lot of post about link building that Domain Authority is much relevant or important right now than checking page rank.

    Domain Authority uses 40 metrics to calculate while PR can be manipulate, according to some blogs I read.
    That's why they see Moz's domain autority is much accurate.

    In terms or link building, it is said that the more DA a domain have, its more powerful.

    Your thoughts?

    My thoughts are ignorant actually. I wish I knew enough about this stuff--it's such an overload :). My first thoughts revolve around what Google thinks, then I take it from there. Isn't that why they keep changing there algorithms, because they base it on PR?


    Im not trying to sound like a smart-ass, just seems like common sense to me...

    @ Eymard: It's sometimes really funny, what is written in some blogs out there ...

    Google is founded and based on Larry Page's PageRank algorithm.
    That's the most important thing for G to evaluate a site: the PR of the site + which PR-links refer to the site.

    Domain authority however is based on PR. If a domain has a high authority, it simply has a high PR.
    For example "The New York Times" is a site of highest authority. Why? It has a PR 9.
    It's the PR which gives a domain it's authority, at least on Google (the evaluations of other directories are not interesting for me).

    It's true, the PR can be manipulated, but less and less due to Google's Pandas, Penguins, Hummingbirds and who knows what else is there of permanent minor updates.

    If these people say, domain authority consists of 40 criteria, G only laughs about it - they use more than 200 criteria ...

    DA uses PR too.

    Hmm? I just wondering..
    Recently, when I started scraping sites.
    I found some sites with HIGH DA, but not so low PR.. maybe in the mid section..
    I found some High PR sites, PR ranging to 5 - 6 .. Low OBL.. DA around 65..

    I asked this because I am thinking of building links with High PR sites.. Vs.. High DA sites.. :D

    PR 6 is easy to find nowadays.. Jeez.

    Interesting discussion actually, learn something new everyday as I am totally oblivious to this sort of thing.

    Jay Wessman may have an answer for us all :)

    I agree, PR6 is easy to find but very hard to achieve.

    OBL are not interesting for the PR, quite the contrary, they take power away from the site.

    If you want to publish on G and rank in G, then you need relevant high PR links pointing to your site.
    G evaluates according to its own criteria of which PR is the most important.

    The goal : your own PR 6 blog !! ;)
    (PR 6 is the highest achievable PR for websites and blogs.)

    Well, having my OWN PR6 blog will be hard due to my poor content writing. Haha!
    Anyways, the PR6 site I found is a social bookmark or web directory kind of site.

    * PageRank is a Google entity whereas Domain Authority belongs to SEOMOZ.org
    * PageRank does not influence rankings, Domain Authority directly relates to SERP rankings.
    * PageRank is only based on incoming and outgoing links. Domain Authority considers more factors than just the inbound link or the Out bound references.
    * The PageRank toolbar is updated 2-3 times in a year. Domain Authority on the other hand gets updated 2-3 times in a month.
    * PageRank is not considered that relevant to evaluate a website. Domain Authority is more reliable correct and up to date metric for getting exact status of the website.

    PR is irrelevant (at the least the way we know it), same and DA and PA and etc, what I think is valid and top ranking signal, is the trust-relevancy. I would advise you guys to read more in Google Patents for trust authority and seed sites, I bet you will find some interesting things to think of.
