I have an interesting situation. My website is indexed properly and well by Google, but I also see a lot of spam sites just copying my content or linking to my website, while I have never asked for that.
To give you an example:
/websitename-of-spamsite.com Link: "go to this web-site" PA: 38 DA: 41 Linking Domains: 18 Spam Score: 2%
So, as you can see, this is:
1) a spam site (100% sure), even though the spam score is just 2% according to Moz.
2) it has a high PA and DA
3) It counts as a backlink (assumption)
So, my question is broad: does this page (by the way leading to a 404 page on my website, as I have removed that post already), increase or decrease my ranking on Google? It has a high DA, so you might think that it has a positive effect on my website, but as I know it's spam (even though Google might not think that?), it just does not make sense to me to not report it.
Can I please get some extra information on DA, PA and potential spammy links like this?
