    Question Domain Authority - 1 sites or 2? seeking feedback


    I'm trying to wrap my head around Domain Authority and figure out if I should build 1 or 2 sites.

    Page Rank (or Page Authority) is tied to keywords but I don't think Domain Authority is tied to any keywords or topics, right?

    So, for example, let's say I want to have a site that focuses on public transportation and also on car owenership. Both topics are related and provide the user with resources regarding transportation, but at the same time they are their own topics.
    So for the purpose of gaining stronger Domain Authority over time, I'm trying to figure out if it matters that I have two topics on 1 site, will that affect Domain Authority?
    Is Domain Authority a measure of authority without consideration to any keywords or topics the site is about?

    Hope what I'm trying to ask makes sense.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Google does not refer to DA, that is a Moz scoring system. Even if you got a DA of 100 it does not mean you will rank any better.

    You need to focus on your user base, if its logical for the users to have both topics on 1 site then thats the way to go. trying to look after 2 sites is doubling your workload and not normally advised unless there is a very good reason. Dont under estimate the amount of time and effort it takes to look after 1 site, it will consume your spare time and still leave wanting more.
