Age of the Domain

How old is your domain and for how long your have booked that show the seriousness of your work for that domain. If you are new starter you can book your domain for longer period to increase the domain authority.


Links are also play important role but only good links increase the domain authority and toxic links can decrease the authority or google may penalize you. These links are of two types.

Internal Links

These are the links from one post in your blog to other post. When you are writing a content, if there already exists a post which is related to the content you are about to write, you can mention that article in the new content by providing links inside the article. It let the user to find the related information easily.

External Links

To the more people your content reaches, the more link backs you get. to market your content you can either use the Paid Advertising or try to share your blog on social media and start giving reference to your friends.

Do not try to buy high volume of backlinks online because those links will be of low quality and authority. Quality is the key thing here.

Write High Quality Content

As they say, content is the king in blogging. Always write blog posts that makes sense. People are coming to your blog either to get the information they need or to get a solution to the problems they are facing. So don’t let them down. Write posts in a simple and understandable way and don’t forget to be descriptive enough. Use the tags, category and keywords properly in the article and make sure there are no error in the post before you publish it. Try to use images or info-graphics that users can easily understand what you want to express. It make the users more engaging to let them to share your post to other as well. So quality matters.

Don’t just depend on search engines only for traffic. You need to make a very good presence on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. Social medias will give you brand value. Get more likes and followers to your page and publish your posts in there too. If your content is that good, people will share it and you will get even more post reach.

Even though you do everything possible to increase your domain authority, it won’t just happen in the blink of an eye. You need to give it some time. The age of a domain is importance factor for DA so wait for it sometime.

  1. Well, I am new to this field, and recently got to know, that Domain Authority is a vital factor, as it increases the reputation of our blog in advertisers eye’s, but I was not aware of the fact, How can I increase domain authority quickly.

    Now, after reading this article, I have a little bit of confusion, Will nofollow links help me increase DA or not?

    And how much time it will take my blog to get good domain authority?

  6. Hello,

    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?

    • As per my view google is keep changing their strategy and at this moment even for SEO gurus it is not easy to determine a fixed policy to rank higher. And all these SEO tools are just giving you an idea. It is sure that google algorithm has some Domain authority type ranking factor. Moz is just providing a basic ideas about that domain authority otherwise there is nothing to do with the DA.

  7. Hi,

    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?

    ~ Linda

  8. Great info. keep it up.

  9. Yes, I totally agree with your opinion. Excellent points you have mentioned now I can know how I can increase my Blog’s DA. You are unquestionably right. Domain Authority is an overall website’s SEO score. Many webmaster SEO people do more wrong than good to their domain by spending for cheap links on Tumblr and other freelance sites.

    In short, CONTENT IS KING, and then I would like to add an extension to that; TRAFFIC means royalty for the king. Smart SEO people and developers create a new site, produced high quality of content and distribute it into social medias, and after one week, their content went viral really fast, their sites have ranked up to #1 Google for Long Tail Keyword. Moreover, I think that having high-quality backlinks is the most important factor that makes a great impact on DA. Of course, there are loads of other factors that affect SEO; however, HQ backlinks are absolutely essential for a good DA level.

    Anyways, thank you very much! I bookmarked this post to be very valuable!
