What to do with a low ranking site?
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 not necessarily on the score a site earns.
Longer Answer: What backlinks should be 301 redirected from another domain?
While it is a Domain Authority 19 now it is a CF 34, and a TF 14. It has a DR 45, and a DS 24, TS 22, AS 36 ….. head spinning yet? As a reminder here are what those abbreviations mean … and to whom.
- DA is Domain Authority created by Moz
- CF is Citation Flow created by Majestic
- TF is Trust Flow created by Majestic
- DR is Domain Rank created by AHREFS
- DS is Domain Score created by SEMRush
- TS is Trust Score by SEMRush
- AS is Authority Score by SEMRush
DA is Unreliable To Me
The DA metric lost a lot of credence in my mind when they redid their formula, it made it more obvious that it’s just a number in a vacuum. What we saw after Moz released DA2.0 was as a DA40 became a DA19 it wasn’t reflective by what Google saw.
The day before this site ranked as it did the day after DA2.0. Google doesn’t use DA and what we care about is what does Google think about a site.
So Id say if we want to redirect 301 links we can …. and I do. But I do it because the anchor text is what I want, not because a site’s DA is low.
Assessing A Site’s SEO Value
When we assess if a site is high or low we have to consider all of the SEO metrics we have available and use these numbers together. Keep in mind they are not intended to be apples to apples. For instance Citation Flow is how influential a site appears where Trust Flow and Trust Score are meant to tell us how trustworthy a site is considered. AS is Authority Score which I lump in with CF. I think of DA, DR and DS as comparable metrics.
So assessing if this site is low or high I’d say we have the following metrics:
Overall scores: DA: 19 DR: 45 DS: 24
Trustworthiness: TF: 14 TS: 22
Authority: AS: 36 CF: 34
It’s also important to look at some of the raw indicators to understand the values we are seeing above. I use Majestic, SEMRush And Moz to answer these questions, and I always expect Majestic to have higher numbers because it crawls more of the web than Moz.
Moz likely would say they crawl more of the relevant web … but who are they to decide whats relevant and I dont care what they think is relevant … just what Google crawls.
Backlinks: So how many links to my site are there?
Backlinks . Moz: 18445 Majestic: 139903 SEMRush 1000000*
Backlinks are fine and dandy but keep in mind a million from one website vs a hundred from a hundred sites says something. So what is the “Domain Pop” … how many domains link to our site?
Domain Pop: MAJ 1302 SEMRush: 4,000
Domains can be owned and operated easily from the same cheap shared host. So how many seperate IP Addresses link to our site?
IP Pop: SEMRush 885 Majestic 905
These numbers above 885 and 905 seem a lot more comparable to each other than some of the other numbers.
Now consider a site that may have a DA: 50 vs Ultimate SEO’s DA: 19. I’m willing to bet 9 times out of 10 Ultimate SEO will out rank the other site as long as the other site has 500 or less domains on different IP addresses.
Better Backlinks and Best Backlinks
Now to be fair this explanation above is overly simplifying the answer. You may wonder how that could be … it seems rather complicated. Well ask yourself which site would you rank higher … a site that has a link to it from 20 research universities or a site that has 200 links to it from random weirdly named domains? Obviously the 20 research universities suggests a more authoritative and trustworthy site.
Authority On The Topic
But getting more complicated what if the page we are considering for ranking is about 2000 dance mixes. The 20 research universities are all medical schools and the anchor text reads “open heart surgery mortality rates” … do we think that the site should rank that high now…and how authoritative do we think the site is on dance remixes of 2000?
301 Backlinks Based On Backlinks Not Your Domain
So the best answer I can give for when to 301 redirect a domain or not is to ignore any one metric completely. If multiple numbers lead you to believe a site isn’t going to be good then sure consider each backlink individually. Keeping in mind what earned the site a low metric across the board IS mostly those backlinks.
If you find a .gov or .edu link using the anchor text you are after on another site then yes … thats the time to 301 redirect that backlink to the best content you have that is relevant to that anchor text. That last part is essential.
You can’t expect long term gains by redirecting a backlink to content that isn’t able to hold its own. User behavior is a big factor in Google’s ranking of a site. And it should be, you can’t prevent what you cant predict.
After all is said and done if no one stays on a site for more than 10 seconds or if they always click the result after yours in Google’s search results you must ask yourself why users hate your content.
And I mean it … people hate your content if you have 301 redirected, optimized your on page and studied your backlinks but users still go elsewhere. Google may rank you high for a time but without users liking your content and staying for awhile you will drop in rankings due to user behavior.
G.U.N.T. Gerätebau GmbH engineering equipment company in Hamburg, Germany, to fit ASU’s teaching and research requirements and the available lab space. G.U.N.T. technicians have also provided extensive training for ASU engineering faculty and lab technicians.Also called an open-channel flume, the new equipment was custom built by the
“Our students will use the flume in our water resources engineering classes,” said Dr. Aldo Piñón-Villarreal, assistant professor of civil engineering. “These are fluid mechanics, hydrology and hydraulics, and hydraulic system design. Students will learn about the energy, momentum and forces present in open-channel water flows, which are applicable to hydraulic structures such as stormwater conveyance systems, irrigation channels and dam spillways.”
The Hunter Strain Engineering Labs already featured a much smaller flume, which will remain in use. The new larger flume offers additional options for regulating and changing water flow rates, angles and patterns, as well as additional sensors for measuring flow rates and pressure, and for collecting data.
“When you’re talking about water flow, you’re talking about rivers, lakes and larger bodies of water like that,” said Clint Hudson, engineering lab technician. “With our smaller flume, students can only learn how to measure very small flow rates. We will now be able to up the size for them to be able to get closer to what they’ll actually be measuring as an engineer.”
“We have a lot of lab classes where students will use this flume,” he added, “and they will also have access to it for conducting any type of research that they want. It will fulfill the needs for our labs, as well as any faculty or student research. It really supplements the other equipment we have, and it’s the final step to make sure our students have the finest equipment possible.”
Funding for the new flume came from the final installment of the five-year, $2.87 million U.S. Department of Education grant ASU was awarded in 2015 to implement the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program.

Much of the content in this article about beta-sitoseterol come from University of Michigan Health.
What is beta-sitosterol plant extract?
Beta-sitosterol is one of many sterols that come from plants (phytosterols) and have a structure like the cholesterol produced in the body. You can find phytosterols in many plants and thus in foods such as rice bran, wheat germ, corn oils, soybeans, and peanuts. Beta-sitosterol is also available as a dietary supplement.
Beta-Sitosterol is a sterol found in plants and vegetables. Because of its chemical structure, it is a natural “alpha blocker” and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. These two things are the keys to reducing the size of a swollen prostate and keeping it from further swelling. It delivers a one-two knockout punch to your prostate that Mike Tyson would be proud of.
What is beta-sitosterol used for?
Beta-sitosterol is said to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of some cancers. It also is said to relieve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) . How beta-sitosterol works is not known. It may be related to cholesterol metabolism or anti-inflammatory effects.
A review of studies done on beta-sitosterol showed that men who took it had fewer symptoms than men who took a placebo . Symptoms were measured using the American Urological Association (AUA) symptom index . Men who took beta-sitosterol also had a better urine flow rate then men who took a placebo.
Research supports the fact that phytosterols, including beta-sitosterol, can reduce cholesterol levels. Some studies suggest that phytosterols may reduce the risk of some cancers, but more research is needed to know how well they really work.
They work to relax your prostate so it is easier for you to urinate. And they work to reduce the swelling of your prostate, this also makes it easier to urinate, empty your bladder, and get a host of other nagging prostate issues.
Study on Beta-Sitosterol:
The significant prostate-relieving power of Beta-Sitosterol was confirmed in a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study published in the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet. In a study of 200 men with Benign prostate enlargement, half the group took 180 mg of Beta-Sitosterol daily, while the other half received a placebo.
After three months, the Beta-Sitosterol group experienced significant improvements. They saw their symptoms decrease by nearly 50%! Their urine flow increased 35%! Voiding time plummeted 32%! And their IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score) decreased by a whopping 351%, with an average score decrease of 7.4 points. (the lower your score the better). These are major improvements in urine flow! Again, they had an overall improvement of 351%.
And in a follow-up study on these men, their improvements were maintained for an additional 18 months of observation.
Numerous other studies show similar and even better outcomes. Some of the studies on Beta-Sitosterol given at doses fof much more than 180 mg have had sensational results. It seems the higher the amount taken daily directly correlates to better results. Also, there has not been one single published clinical study on Beta-Sitosterol that concludes it does not help your prostate. Every single study shows it works. That’s probably why it is contained in several leading European prescription drugs. It has been prescribed by doctors in Europe to millions of men for over 25 years, while it is still relatively new to America.
When you talk about specific benefits and results achieved by using Prostagenix, you should look to the IPSS, as mentioned above. The IPSS is the International Prostate Symptom Score. It applies a standardized measuring criteria used worldwide. It consists of seven questions about symptoms related to BPH and urinary issues. It is used to measure a man’s prostate problems and rate them as either mild, moderate or severe. Men using Prostagenix report improvement in all seven areas measured by the I-PSS.These benefits include:
- Dramatically reduced nighttime bathroom trips… no more constantly getting up to go at night.
- More complete bladder emptying… no more feeling like you still have to go.
- Reduced frequency… You won’t be looking for a men’s room all the time.
- Powerful urine flow. Eliminated dribbling of a weak stream…You are going to feel like a race horse when you pee! Power will be back.
- Less stopping and straining… No more standing at the urinal for 10 minutes at a time stopping and starting with little spurts.
- Eliminates that feeling of you “having to go” all the time… it’s time to relax!
- Sleep soundly again. Start getting a good night sleep again and wake up energized and alert, not tired because you had to get up several times to go to the bathroom.
Study Reveals Grape Seed Extract Crucial For Long Term Prostate Health
ProstaGenix is one of the few formulas that also contains Grape Seed Extract. It is extremely important for long-term prostate health, a famous large scale study revealed. Grape Seed Extract is derived from ground-up seeds of red wine grapes. So like grapes, it is rich in antioxidants, which soak up damaging free radicals in the body that can build up and promote cancer cell growth.
An epidemiological study in Washington State found that men who used Grape Seed Extract reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by 41%. The participants were 35,239 males, 50–76 years of age, in a study called the “VITamins And Lifestyle (VITAL) cohort.”
This study was designed to investigate the associations of the use of vitamins, minerals, and specialty supplements with cancer risk. Grape Seed Extract was the only one of the supplements surveyed that showed a clear risk reduction for prostate cancer. No comparable risk reduction was noted from the use of other well known supplements, including: Coenzyme Q-10, Fish Oil, Garlic, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng or Saw Palmetto. So in other words, none of these other natural compounds studied worked, but Grape Seed Extract had remarkable success. 41% is huge.
So considering that Prostagenix includes a strong dose of it in their formula, it truly has been masterfully designed.
Saw Palmetto Not In Prostagenix
It has no Saw Palmetto in its formula. The single biggest myth surrounding natural prostate products is that Saw Palmetto helps relieve prostate problems. It does not. There were a few studies on Saw Palmetto that got major publicity that showed that Saw Palmetto relieved prostate problems in men. It is true there were a few studies like this. But what is not told to consumers is that Saw Palmetto used in these studies were “super extracted” and were the equivalent of taking like 1,000 capsules a day. That’s why if you have tried Saw Palmetto, it didn’t make a dent in your prostate issues.
Beta-Sitosterol is 3,000 times stronger than Saw Palmetto. This was confirmed in an independent laboratory analysis of 12 Saw Palmetto extracts published in the Journal of Official Analytical Chemists. It has also been reported in multiple studies. That’s 3,000 to 1. Just think of Saw Palmetto as a scrawny little JV weakling and Beta-Sitosterol as a All Pro NFL linebacker … who do you think is going to win that fight? No contest.
