    Unhappy Passes Domain Authority


    My website domain authority is 35. If I gave dofollow links to another websites which have already high domain authority(70-80) then it will effect my website or not?

    As a matter of fact it will affect your DA, (provided we are talking about Moz DA ).

    The reason it will affect your site is the way DA is calculated. When the higher sites DA increases, then the lower sites DA will decrease.

    But this metric is not a Google metric, only a Moz metric. The fact that another site can influence your DA because their DA changes is just one reason not to use this metric for other than an indicator.

    This metric is influenced by backlinks and people that chase this blindly can harm their site. You could get bad links pointed to your site that will not help and in fact harm your site, but will increase your DA. Moz is not Google, remember that.
