This time I am here with a blogpost on “How to increase Domain Authority?”. This blog has list of all effective tips to increase DA/PA of a blog. These days DA is the most important factor to check the quality of particular website in absence of Google Page Rank Updates. A good DA means the website is quality website and having useful content for readers.
So let’s start with ABC of Domain Authority –
Domain Authority is the measure of power and popularity of a domain. Many search engines use this term to rank WebPages in SERP. It is just like Google PR and Alexa.
DA is the abbreviation of Domain Authority. This metric is introduced by Moz. Domain Authority is highly based on three factors –
- Domain Age – Old domains are always considered most trustworthy than new.
- Popularity – Most incoming back links from other WebPages indicate that website is doing great job for its readers.
- Size – More indexed pages of your website reflects the size of your site and the higher size of domain leads to higher Domain Authority. It is because search engine loves frequently updated sites and quality content
Difference between DA (Domain Authority) and PA (Page Authority) –
Moz has introduced one more term named Page Authority. The only difference between these two metrics is PA is not site-wide alike DA. Domain authority is a site-wide rank for all the sub domains, pages and root domain. This rank starts from 1 and end on 100.
According to SEO Moz team it is much easier to get DA 20 to 40 as compare to achieve DA between or more than 60 – 80.
How to check Domain Authority –
There are numerous free tools available on web to check the DA of a blog. The most preferred are –
- Open Site Explorer
How to increase Domain authority –

I am wondering if long post effecting site density matter on domain and page authority. And for that matter your comment sections on popularity. It is easy to push a like button. It actually takes time to write a comment.
I know one blogger that is very good at it, SEO optimizes this post to death, writes pretty short ones to not wear the reader out. And he worries about his comment section effecting his ability to search engine rank so much he barely approves any.
I write almost opposite to him. He writes short post. Mine are very long. He heavily optimizes for SEO and I do, but just go with natural flow. He will barely approve a comment. I approve everything that isn’t spam or a troll. Edit the comment down if need be. His site is much older then mine. His Alexa rank way lower although I think he heavily manipulate its. Nobody has a legitimate average of 20 pages per session.
Domain and page authority though. Although his site is older and has 3 times the post on it, I easily caught him and easily going way past him. So post length and comment sections seem to have allot to do with this.
Thanks for writing us back on Domain Authority.
Improving Domain Authority is proving very difficult task for me, I was wondering how, Domain authority 40 can be achieved.
But recently getting help from many experts, so now I am focusing on tips which can increase DA,
Although, I have a question here, Will High DA means my ranking will be good? or it’s just a waste?
Thanks for sharing your views & the trick question.
I will not say High DA blogs rank well, it actually depends on the content quality, content freshness and use of Title & Media description.
And Yes for sure in any case DA is not a waste.
Great Post Indeed!
But recently I have heard that, the algorithm used by Moz to calculate Domain Authority is dying and giving many false results. Many bloggers are saying that, blogs Penalized by Google has High Domain Authority.
So, My question is, Is it correct that, DA is dying? or it is just a to keep spammers away from Domain Authority?
I am Linda, I own number of websites and I have hired people for SEO of all those sites, but Lately I myself learning something about technical stuff, which can help me handle my site son my own and latest i learned about Domain Authority and I have been working on it in past few months.
But despite having good internal Linking and god content, Most of my sites Domain Authority is around 15-20 which I think is not good, as I love to attract more advertisers and without having Good Domain Authority, it is tough to attract high paying advertisers.
So, what basically, I want to ask here, is there any way to increase Domain Authority quickly, I mean in 2-3 Months?
Indeed a great post about domain authority.
Domain authority is the most popular website metric developed by Moz. It is said that If the Domain authority of any site is high then that site will perform better in search engines and will gain more traffic.
Domain authority help us to determine to quality of a site.
To improve domain authority, We must have to gain quality backlinks and should must have to maintain the content quality on our website.
Having high DA helps a lot while ranking any content in SERPs.
I am glad that you have covered detailed article on it. Thanks for sharing it with us. 😀
