10 Ways to increase Domain Authority

1. Publish Quality Content

‘Content is the King’ for every blogger. Here I am not going to tell you, to write 1000+ words. If you are writing about micro Bus and to make 1000 words you wrote about chopper it will not be quality content. As a blogger, you should write less and tell more. If you don’t put images on the website then it will also not consider as Quality Content. One image can describe 1000 words. I suggest you to write quality content because quantity will not help you to increase domain authority. You can also use GIF and Videos to make your content more awesome. A good Content always contains 700+ words which are relevant to post title.

2. Internal Linking

Internal linking is the key to increase domain authority. Wikipedia is the site which has 100 domain authority because it links users to others page within their site. If you use Internal ranking then it will improve site bounce rate. Bounce rate is also one factor which Moz looks while calculating DA.If you got good bounce rate then it will automatically increase domain authority.

3. Quality Backlinks

Getting backlinks is easy but getting quality backlinks is very hard. You should always try to build high-quality backlinks. People Who are running tech site and get the backlink from basketball website then it will not help you to improve your search results as well as domain authority. The person running tech site then you should get the backlink from another site which is like your niche. If you get the backlink from tech site but that site gets backlinks from another site like football players website then it will not be the quality backlink. It will not affect your site but the backlink you got will not be quality backlink. There are different ways to get backlinks such as blog commenting and guest posting.

People Who got good page authority then you will get good domain authority.

6. Write Content in the Same Niche

If you sometimes write the post on computer tutorials and after some days, you start Writing about basketball on the same Website. It will not be going to increase your visitors or site ranking. If you are good to make tutorial content and you keep posting those kinds of post. Then, it will build your brand and all people who visit your website will love your content. They will join your social media. If you post different kinds of content then it will not increase your domain authority. So, write content within your niche.
