    Exclamation Disavow links | Does disavowing links affect DA?

    Hi Guys and Gals

    Sorry if it this is a noob question , do you think disavowing potential spammy links pointing your site has any effect on DA?

    My doubt is we actually submit these text files through google console and cross our fingers to see if they would indeed improve/restore our ranking in Google.

    But Could Moz be aware of these disavowals when they build MozEscape index ? Does google provide these meta information through APIs?

    Expecting a favorable response

    Good Day to All!

    Moz has no insight into what you disavow on Search Console. So that means that your DA will not change.

    Out of curiosity, how could Moz be aware of your disavow file and its contents... Did you give Moz access to your Google Accounts ??
    Just because you disavow a link does not remove the link from the internet, it just tells Google you don't want it to count against you.

    DA is a Moz only metric, and is intended to be a pseudo replacement ( along with PA ) for PR aka Page Rank.
