The Problem of High Domain Authority But Low Trust Flow

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by jasontn, Dec 1, 2018.

    I've seen at least one domain offered in domain marketplace on DP - where this problem was paramount. In fact, the trust flow was in fact - zero!

    Well, anyway, it would be good practice to examine domain authority (DA) in conjunction with other metrics to make sure a domain is worth buying and/or working with.

    DA depends on a domains age. So, do the math it may have TF low or zero but DA could say a different story. And before buying it many things have to consider not just these things.

    Horse manure. Domain age is NOT used by MOZ in the DA calculations.

    Nothing to argue. You are wrong. MOZ don't use domain age. If you do not believe me, ask MOZ.

    Age has nothing to do with DA....
    usually high DA + 0 TF = SPAM/low quality backlinks, probably in high volume.
    when buying a domain you'll have to check the BL profile manually, there's no other way around it. But DA and TF can be good for initial filtering, and this does not look good...
