  1. Jaime Olaer says

    Hi Alex,

    As an expert, do you think that MajesticSEO Trustflow is also metrics that should be look into? I am not sure of there is a correlation between DA and Trustflow.


    • Alex says

      Hi Jaime

      I’m not familiar with Trustflow but most probably its a metric similar to DA. You can look into it but don’t get over obsessed with metrics. They can indicate how strong your domain is but what is more important is traffic and rankings.


      • Jaime Olaer says

        Hi Alex,

        Thanks for sharing your opinion.
        Yes, that is true traffic and ranking in Google search results is important and probably is the best metrics.

  2. Nick Stamoulis says

    There might not be a direct relationship between social shares and rank but social activity helps SEO indirectly. Build up your followers, share great content, and it will get linked to naturally. And we know inbound links most definitely are a ranking signal.

    • Alex says

      Hi Nick

      Good points. Social activity does help SEO indirectly and it also influences DA.

      All the best

  9. Beth Hein says

    Hey Alex,

    Thanks for writing this post, but I have few questions in my mind, recently while talking to some of my website’s potential buyers, found out that Domain authority is one factor that can fetch me some extra money, but I am confused on how can I quickly increase it, whether I should work on it or let it be?

    Also While researching about DA, I have found out another metric called MajesticSEO Trustflow, is it also worth following & working?

    Looking forward to a quick response.

    ~ Beth Hein

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Beth

      Yes MajesticSEO Trustflow is definitely something you can follow and work to improve.


  10. Pablo Heras says

    Thanks for this post!! It really helps me to understand how DA works and now I have to start to improve mine

  11. Thomes says

    Very useful article. Thanks for sharing.

    Is it going to harm if I have multiple links pointing to same url on a page?

    Also, I have several hyperlinks with text ‘View details’ on a page that point to different internal pages. Having relevant keywords in link text will help but not suitable for site design. Will it help if I have alt text for hyperlinks with ‘View details’ text in this case?

  12. adhip says

    Hi Alex,

    The above techniques are really helpful to get high DA but nowadays getting the backlink from other blogs have become really hard. Can we get backlinks from tech forums and if yes so can we achieve higher DA with it?

    please explain.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Sarika

      As long as they don’t have the ‘nofollow’ attribute and they are coming from really high quality forums, they can definitely help.


  16. Binod Jha says

    Hi Alex,

    This is what I’m looking for. You have explained well about DA improvements.

    I checked my site and it is mobile friendly. Regarding page load speed, I checked google page speed insights and Pingdom tools. Both tools are giving different metrics. Which one should I trust?

    Could you please suggest.


    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Dinesh

      See what recommendations provided by both tools you can fix and then look at the actual time your website takes to load in different locations using pingdom. Don’t get over-obsessed with Page speed insights.

      Hope this helps

  19. Duncan says

  40. Brian Keller says

    Does Domain Authority (DA) “cause” rankings to increase, or are they simply correlated?

    In other words, does Google take a website’s DA into account and rank websites with higher DA higher up on their results, or is DA simply an outcome/measurement of a high-ranking website?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Brian

      Google has its own way of measuring the authority of a page, this is known as PageRank. It’s an internal value used by their algorithm that takes into account a number of parameters. In the past, the PR of a page was given public but this is no longer the case. So, other companies have come up with the concept of DA to give users an alternative way of understanding how strong a domain is.

      To answer your question, it’s both. Usually websites that have a high DA rank higher, and websites that rank high, have a high DA.

      Hope this helps

  58. Embracing Nirvana says

    Do you think it makes any difference in DA or SEO rankings using WordPress VS. coding a website yourself?

    • Alex Chris says

      No difference at all. Good SEO practices can be applied to all kinds of websites. DA is not related in any way with how a website is coded.

      Hope this helps

  61. Kami says

    Hi! Is Consistency of publishing posts will help us in Domain Authority ? I observed some site having DA 40 with zero Content how it is Possible


    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Kami

      No, it will not help. Indirectly it might help since more content (if it’s good), can increase the chances of getting natural backlinks. Backlinks do impact DA.

      Hope this helps

  89. Brenda Schrier says

    Alex, good stuff!
    Have you ever done any research on how accurate DA really is as a ranking factor?
    During the last 2 years I did a lot of work on my site on SEO, content and (white hat) link building. I improved my site’s ranking to be in the top 3 Google results for most relevant keywords and increased traffic by 1000% (yes, no typo, the site had not much traffic before). – Still my DA actually fell from 21 to 19 during that time.
    So, I wonder how important DA really is.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Brenda

      Thanks for your comment. As mentioned in the article, the DA is just a number used by third-party tools (not Google) to predict how well a page will perform on Google. There is no direct colleration between actual rankings and DA.

      I hope this helps

  90. Teqnovos says

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Vinod

      Yes, starting with off-page SEO and then on-page SEO, is a great way to improve your domain authority.
