DA AS TF Domain SEO

Is A Site Low Level? DA vs CF vs TF … DR, DS, AS, TS and more!

What to do with a low ranking site? I was asked a seemingly simple question by a client today. Should low level sites he owns be scrapped and used for their backlinks by 301 redirecting the sites. Simplest Answer: I think it's hard to quantify if a site is low level. Ultimateseo.org has a DA 19, that seems pretty low. But keep in mind it used to be a DA 40 before Moz changed it's scoring. Keep also in mind that change in scoring showed no reflection in the site's ranking. I recommend 301 redirecting based on anchor text
