Yes, DA & PA are still work. DA and PA decided by Moz. It shows authority of Domain & Page. Rules says that if we submit our links on high DA sites, then it would be good for our website.

Domain Authority and Page Authority are just metrics. Moz is the slowest crawler out there so yes they stats behind them are less updated than other sites. That's not to say the others are perfect as well. Use them all, find what works best for you.

DA and PA are still important honestly.
DA - The overall strength of your whole domain.
PA - The overall strength of your single page.

Here strength means your sites or pages Page Rank, Domain Age, Number Backlinks and Content Quality and so on.

Yes DA and PA are still important for a website. Domain authority is the measure of strength and popularity of your domain in search engines. It is measured by Moz and your domain is ranked between 0 to100 depending on the popularity and trust. DA can be improved by good content update and also by building backlinks from other relevant domains.

Actually DA and PA from Moz are still working. But then again, we can't 100% trust every number/rating from Moz or any other sites (which aren't relevant to Google). These ratings based on 3rd party calculation and surely we can't expect them to be perfect. But still, they're reliable.
If you want another source for comparation then you can check the DR from Ahrefs, it's also a reliable rating like DA and PA.

DA and PA are important metrics for SEO and they are still used for evaluation, for example when choosing a website for building backlinks. There is one more metrics for estimating page value - SB rank. Its formula is based on PA/DA and due to some reasons it may be considered as a Google PR substitute. You may read more about SB rank https://www.linksmanagement.com/sb-rank/ Hope it will help.

DA/PA are just thrid-part metrics for reference. The Google ranking result is the final target. A lot of PBN have very high DA/PA but without traffic. Google has its algorithm to penalize the manipulated websites even they have high DA/PA.

Yes. DA and PA still works. It tells you which website is good for you. High PA and DA means more beneficial because it have high domain authority and page authority.

But are you sure that creating a backlink on an old site with less than 20 DA DA will not adversely affect your site?

I believe that people look for high DA and PA networks hoping they will make their sites/pages more popular, but good content of the page is much more important than measuring the page's strength and popularity. To me, DA and PA is an arbitrary metric and doesn't have any impact on your ranking. It's more of a visualization for people to see what kind of backlinks they have, although not always correct.

Domain authority is a measure of the power of a domain name and is one of many search engine ranking factors. Domain authority is based on three factors: Age, Popularity, and Size. SEO gurus Moz can be credited with the metric known as DA or domain authority.

Page Authority (PA) is a score developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engine result pages (SERP).Page Authority is based on data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank, MozTrust, and dozens of other factors.
