    Neither. Link out to a site has nothing to do with PA/DA, but Google may use it to understand your site content.

    KnowOneSpecial,

    I think the misunderstanding for me was that you were assuming the User had most of the control. I know quite a few different types of sites, where just about anyone can get a link, but it still has to go through a webmaster for approval. And there are also many situations, where you may get multiple links from the same domain. For example, I got a link for a satellite internet provider on a real estate site that had 100+ microsites for all of its agents. My link was added to everyone single one of those.

    Either way, thanks for the explanation. It's hard for me to disagree with those points as you have laid out.

    BTW, I also agree about cautioning newbies on link building. But there's a difference between cautioning and saying to just avoid it entirely. There's also right and wrong ways to do on-page. You don't just tell people not to do any SEO. We educate them, and/or try to point them to the right resources.
