A Detailed Article about Domain Authority – Tips to Increase Website/Blog’s Domain Authority – How to Check DA :-
Recently I contacted an Advertiser to request a review , I was confident about Approval because My Blog is having Page Rank 3 . But that’s a myth that Page Rank helps to get advertisers . I got rejected due to low Domain Authority of my domain . That Term wasn’t new for me but I never cared about it . But Now I have started to take it seriously . I read a lot of articles about Domain authority in past months And even applied the methods on my blogs . So I thought to create that article to help my readers about the term ” Domain Authority ” .
What is Domain Authority ?
As name indicate domain authority is an rating of a website like Page Rank And Alexa Rank . It is short termed as DA . From now I concentrate on Domain Authority because it depends upon Alexa Rank, Google Page Rank And Backlinks to your website . In simple words if you are having high Domain Authority , it means you are having Good Alexa And Page Rank & Backlinks too .
According to seoMoz, authority numbers are high level metrics that attempt to answer the question “How strong are this page’s/site’s links in terms of helping them rank for queries in Google.com?”
SeoMoz also gives a criteria of ranking. They Says ” Getting Domain Authority between 20-40 is easy but to have Domain Authority between 60-80 , You need a lot of Back Links , Time And Potential . ”
Factors Involved in Domain Authority Calculation
Now the question arises ” How Domain Authority is calculated ? ” or ” On Which Factors Domain Authority Depends ? ” . Actually there are more then 100 Factors which determines DA of any website . But we will discuss only main factors that are helpful to raise DA of your Blog / Website .
Domain Age And Domain Popularity
As Blogging is becoming first choice of youths to earn online , a lot of domains are being created day by day and several are getting died too . DA tells that how much trust worthy your website/blog is . Domain age matters a lot to have higher Domain Authority . Actually that’s the reason my blog is having less Domain Authority because its just 4 Months old and active since 3 Months .
Domain Popularity may be a new term to you . It is the comparison of outbound Links ( OBL ) to inbound links . Inbound links are the back links pointing to your domain . While making back link you must see the quality of website .
For Example : One Back Link from PR 1 Blog is better then 20 Back links From PR 0 Blog .
Another factor is content . If your website is having a lot of content indexed by Search Engines then your DA will be great . So writing more content leads to higher DA .
