Serpstat Page Rank (SPR) - a score on scale from 0 to 100 which measures the page authority. Serpstat Page Rank predicts how influential a URL might be based on the number of pages  linking to it. Links are not measured with equal weight, so a strong link will have a relatively stronger influence on URLs.

Serpstat Trust Rank (STR) - a score on scale from 0 to 100 which measures the site authority based on how authoritative and trusted are the sites linking to the site in question. A site closely linked to trusted site can obtain higher trust rank scores, while a site which has some questionable links would get a much lower score.
