high DA & PA backlinks are still the most important factor of SEO.
Domain authority (DA) is a metric which was created by Moz , for the
purpose of rating a website on a scale of 1-100 (100 being the best and 1 being
the worst). So the higher the domain authority of a website, the higher its
ranking in search engines.
Page authority (PA)is based
on a logarithmic scale from 0 to 100 and deals with the relevance of
information and links within site pages to one another. Higher page authority
means greater chances of your page showing up on search engines, and that your
page will be placed closer to the top of the search results. Note that page
authority is related to the pages within sites, not the site itself.
