Please please please STOP REFERRING TO DR / TF / DA as a quality metric.
Domain rank, trust flow, domain authority, citation flow mean absolutely NOTHING, that’s right, NOTHING. They are a quantitative metrics for “benchmarking” a website’s popularity.
“Unless I am not mistaken, when did popularity account for quality?” – Daniel Carter
I run a website called https://lnkd.in/g94JRYg – and guess what? It has a DR of 0.1 – that’s right, 0.1 and guess what? IT OUTRANKS .GOV sites for debt advice. – Why? because the quality is in the content, not the links.
Yes – by all means, use it as a popularity metric, but for god sake it’s a vanity metric.
And no – coupling SEMRUSH traffic metrics with link popularity also means nothing.
There are plenty of DR 0 links out there from high-quality websites where the owners focus on quality content – the domains just not popular because links are not always gospel for some niches.
Links – important yes? Does Google have a full grasp on link quality? NO!
Go to your client’s search console profiles and do a link export – the amount of rubbish links Google picks up and gives credit for is still endemic – this is why the warnings for DISAVOW are strong, because people disavow crap links that still give equity!
