    Does spam score affect rankings?


    Hi,

    I am getting a back-link from a a website who's metrics are as below.

    DA- 49
    PA- 30

    But the spam score of that link is 5/17 (according to MOZ bar)

    Will this affect my ranking on google?

    It would be great if someone could provide with relevant link for the same.

    Those scores are just Moz indicators of the value that site may have where Google is concerned. They have nothing to do with Googles Ranking Algo. So those scores have no impact on your Google Rank.

    Chasing those metrics can cause more harm than help. The site with those scores, you have no idea of their Page Rank. Neither do we since Google removed PR from public view some years back.

    You would have to do in depth research on that site to see if they have any value.

    Are they in the same niche as your site,
    Is there a reason those sites should be linking to you
    Is the site spammy
    Is the site in a bad neighborhood

    Bottom line....

    Build links for traffic, not rank I would rather have no-follow links providing me 10,000 visitors a month that I can convert into sales !

    I have also noticed in recent years that DA, PA, Spam are correlating factors and they do not affect your google rankings
