    What do you focus more on, PR or DA?


    PageRank or Domain Authority?

    Which metric do you like to use and why?

    Domain Authority (From SEO Moz)

    I find PR flakey and it doesn't really give a realistic view of a site. Consistently you see sites with low PR out rank high PR sites. Why? Because they are not relevant.

    So DA is also not a relevance metric, but when you have DA and MR (Moz Rank) and you compare this with relevancy you start to get a really good handle on what makes things rank.

    PR is also slow to update, and always historic data, its never really fresh.

    I don't really give a flip about what SEOMoz thinks about a website. Learn the hows, whats and whys of authority and relevance and develop your own metrics.

    Page Rank is the most essential issue. if your PR is increasing, that means you are on the right direction and you should go on working with the same tactics

    I prefer pagerank. I am trying to rank in Google and not SEOmoz. Plus a lot of other factors, as niche, relevancy etc.
