    Whats the best way to increase domain authority


    I have a website that is 9 months old and I went to open site explorer and was alarmed that I had only a 13 on my domain authority. My website has about 100 articles of original content but hardly anything is ranking, again my question is what's the best way to increase domain authority?

    Sorry, not meaning to hijack your thread. What's the difference between Page Rank and Domain Authority and why would you focus on the latter?

    This should help the latter question, while bringing into focus the former: Domain Authority - Learn SEO - Moz

    The truth about raising your DA is that it requires a lot of hard work and good content. The DA is basically a reflection of your inbound link collection, so you've got to be receiving quality backlinks for it to really move the needle. Since you're down in the low teens, a few decent quality inbound links should move you up. But then that's still no guarantee that you'll even see your articles rank.

    Don't focus on either. Both of these values are third-party metrics and not what search engines use to rank a website. Do they give you a rough idea of how you're doing? Sure. However, they should not dictate or blindside you from your SEO efforts.

    If the content truly is original and engaging, marketing it via social media and other mediums should help you to acquire backlinks. THAT will help search engines take notice and rank you.
