5 Best Techniques to Increase Domain Authority (DA) of a Website

By Ashutosh Jha → Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Getting traffic to a website is the most important task for any blogger and webmaster. As traffic depends on many factors, most of us work on SEO mainly, which includes both on page optimization and off page optimization to pull traffic from search engines.

SEO helps a lot to gain initial traffic from search engines and make your website popular. But the old content and optimization techniques won't help you to get traffic in the long run.

So now what? 

Here come Domain Authority and Page Rank in the picture. Since Google has stopped updating Page Rank now and so Domain Authority has become one of the most important factors that decide the quality of a blog or websites. Now bloggers mainly focus on increasing domain authority.

Domain Authority (DA) is a metrics that has been developed by MOZ. It is one of the most popular parameters of SEO. The higher the DA, the more you will get ranked in search engines and hence the more traffic you get.

But domain authority is not something that you can increase in a day or week. As you know, this is critical for ranking, and so many factors have been considered while deciding DA. If you work on all those, definitely you will get higher domain authority.

So now the obvious question is how to increase domain authority? 

In this guide, I am going to tell you the five most important steps to increase domain authority of a website. But before going to those steps to increase domain authority, let me tell you few facts about domain authority.

Domain Authority (DA)

The term DA is a self-explanatory word which decides the popularity of a domain. Below are the few facts about domain authority which will help you to understand domain authority better.

1. DA is based on many factors like the link profile such as how many links are pointing to your website.

2. You can't increase domain authority in a day or week. It takes time but if you will follow my approach, you can get higher domain authority.

3. MOZ updates domain authority frequently. A couple of months ago they updated the domain authority and TricksRoad's DA got increased from 19 to 23. So if you will work on increasing domain authority, you will get the result quickly.

4. Domain authority is scaled between 1 and 100 and depending upon the parameters your website can have any value between 1 and 100. Gaining a DA of 100 is tough. Sites like Facebook, Google, and Twitter are having DA number of 100. But don't get disappointed if you are not hitting 100.

So how to increase your Domain Authority?

How to Improve Domain Authority

How to improve domain authority of a blog or website is a very common question that is being asked. So in this article, I am going to give you an answer to this question- How you can increase domain authority of a website.

To increase the domain authority of a website first, you should take care of the link profile of the site. Here I mean to say you should do the below two things-

1. Remove Bad Links pointing to your website: Here you should remove the bad links pointing to your website. Bad links can harm your SEO and so need to consider immediately. You can take help of online tools to check the links to your site.

2. Get High-quality links: Obviously, as we know links plays a critical role in SEO. So try to get as many high-quality links as possible. You can do this in a couple of ways. Either you can hire an agency to do this. But this method is bit costly and have risks. The second method is creating high-quality contents and those contents which are shareable and linkable. This can include interviews, expert roundups, guest posts, etc. These kinds of posts are highly shareable and linkable. This second method is completely white hat technique, and there is hardly a chance of getting penalized.

How to increase Domain Authority of a Website? - 5 Best Techniques

So now have a look at the five best methods to increase the domain authority of a website.

1. Gain high-quality links

This is the very first and critical step to increase domain authority. High-quality links will not only help you to increase the domain authority but also it will help you to get higher rank in search engine. There are many ways using which you can get high-quality links. For example, you can write a guest post on some high PR and DA blogs. Also, you can get some quality links from the well-established forums. You can read my article how to get best from forums for more details. Even you can ask your fellow bloggers to give you links. 

Also Read: 3 Powerful & Unconventional Link Building Techniques

But again beware while creating links and you should not create low-quality links as that will decrease the authority and SERP of your blog. If you have low-quality links then immediately you need to work to get those removed. 

2. Create Linkable & Shareable Contents

This has a direct impact on the domain authority. DA directly depends on your content. Increasing DA is indirectly related to content marketing, and for content marketing, you should have linkable and shareable content so that others should get attracted to share your articles and even other bloggers should use your article link on their blog for reference. 

If you are writing articles that have enough information and are well structured then even, it can appear in Google news. What best else can happen apart from this. Sometimes ago I wrote a complete guide on How to make money from a blog. Here I listed around 21 proven methods of earning as a blogger and it was a 2100+ words guide which was shared by a lot of bloggers. 

Like this, you should also try to write a complete guide which anyone can follow and be sure to get lots of links and share. This is going to help a lot while increasing DA of your blog.

3. Deep Internal Linking

Increasing DA of a blog or website completely depends on the SEO of a website. It almost considers all the parameters of the search engine optimization. As we know, SEO consists of both on page optimization and off page optimization. On the page, optimization includes well-formed URL, Title of the post, Meta Tag, Description and internal article linking. Internal linking plays a vital role in on-page SEO optimization of a blog. Also, it increases the page views and average time per page views as you are giving your readers some solid reason by providing different good quality articles for reading through internal linking. 


Off-page optimization includes link building (this is the example of internal linking), social sharing, etc. When you are building any website or writing a new post, make sure you are linking your internal pages/old blog posts to each other. By this way, you are telling Google that all your internal pages and posts are equally important and this will help you to rank well. Below I am listing some checkpoints which you can follow while interlinking the posts- 

1. Interlink your pages and posts with relevant keywords. As you can see in this article, I have done. 

2. Use a different variation of keywords while interlinking. Make sure you are not using the same anchor tag again and again. 

3. Don't only link your pages and posts. Also, try to link few external high-quality pages and posts. For example, you are writing an article about "How to create a website" and you found someone else has written a quality post then give a link as a reference. Make sure you are only linking high-quality sites for external links. 

4. Also, make sure all the links that you have used are working properly.

4. Regularly Remove Bad Links

If you are frequent to social media, you must have seen many bloggers and webmasters complaining about the unusual traffic and links from some spam sites or irrelevant sites. This traffic and links decrease your SERP and hence the authority as well. 

The best ways to get protected from such types of issues are continuously tracking your site. You can do Blog Audit for this. Don't worry you can do blog Audit for FREE as well with the help of internet marketing tools like Ahrefs, GSA, etc. 


Analyze all your backlinks and traffic source thoroughly and if you find any unusual traffic or links, remove it immediately. There are couple of ways using which you can get those links removed very quickly- 

1. On some websites, you will find a link, "Request to remove". Fill that form and request to take off your blog's link. 

2. E-mail to the owner of the blog or website, explain the issue and request to remove the links. By this way, you can be safe from any penalty from search engines. 

Also by doing periodic link cleaning, you'll gain a huge benefit. This is something that many bloggers and webmasters don't do. Many bloggers do only when they receive a message in webmaster tool. So don't wait for the Google to tell you/penalize you, do quick scanning frequently.

5. Patient! Domain Age Matters a Lot

Domain age also affects the domain authority and higher the domain age the high domain authority you will receive if you have good SEO. Domain age doesn't come more in the picture, but it does affect the domain authority. I have seen many old areas having very high DA. But again this is subjected to the above conditions.

The websites I am going to list in this best free website builder software are based on the experience, easy design, templates available and the features they provide. You can have different opinions which you can share in the comment section.

1. Wix

Wix is one of the oldest and top website builder available currently. You can check this article for some more details about Wix.

Weebly absolutely offers free plans with many standard options like domain and sub-domain name, a unlimited number of pages and an option to create the store. All these features are completely free and Weebly will charge 3% transaction fee on all your transactions.

The only drawback I found with Weebly is, the number of free templates available is very less. Hardly hundreds of such templates and themes have been provided.

5. SquareSpace

SquareSpace is another great website builder. Although it is not that popular compared to Wix and Weebly but works great especially for the photographers.

The drawback I found with SquareSpace is the cost. For the fully loaded site, you’ll have to pay around $18 per month which is quite expensive.

Other than that, SquareSpace themes are great to look at. The template editing part is also handsome but the newbie may find bit difficult as there is a bit of a learning curve.

Top 5 Blogging Apps to Manage your Blogs like a Pro

By Ashutosh Jha → Saturday, February 25, 2017
Different bloggers have different needs, but there are some requirements that all bloggers share. They all need to create great content, and they all need to stay up to date with the latest trends if they hope to succeed.

Blogging Apps to Manage your Blogs
You need to have a clear goal and a clear purpose, and not being able to manage your blog while on the move is no way to work toward that goal. Working hard is necessary, but working smart is even better. What you need are tools and applications that will get work out of the way and let you focus on writing.

Here are 5 apps that help you manage your blog on the move:

WordPress/Blogger/Tumblr

If you have a blog, then you simply need the app for your blogging platform, no question about it. Regardless of which one you need to choose, they will all be helpful in expediting the management process and staying up to date.

It is even possible to get notifications on your smartphone that will help you respond to comments or emergencies quickly should they come up while you’re out.

Out of experience, WordPress seems to be the most well-defined and useful of the three. On it you can edit or add posts to your blog as if you were on your computer. Tumblr might even be particularly well-suited for mobile use, but know that it uses quite a bit of data.

Blogger has an app, but it doesn’t seem to save work very well and isn’t updated often enough to be reliable. All of that being said, it might be helpful to get all three of the major blogging apps so you can keep track of blogging trends.

A Virtual Private Network

Just as important as writing a blog is protecting that blog from various cyber threats. If you are out using public networks, then you need to know the risks and the ways that you can defend yourself.

The main problem stems from the fact that hackers can easily intercept any data that travels over a public network. This data can include personal information, financial data, business data, or most pertinently, the login details for your blog.

If hackers get ahold of this, then you can consider your blog as good as gone. This is why you need a Virtual Private Network to protect yourself, which is a service that you can use to connect your device to an offsite server.

This connection will be encrypted so that you can safely use public networks and know that no one can possibly know what you are using the internet for other than using a VPN.

In addition, travelers can safely know that their IP address will be hidden by the offsite server, allowing you to research whatever you need to without worries about regional restrictions or government censorship.

There are a lot of different VPNs out there for you to use, each with their own particular niche, but you need to find a VPN that will fit you and your blogging and research needs well, so you will want to find one that is well-reviewed and can suit a variety of requirements.

Pulse

Research and knowledge are keys to staying ahead in the blogging world, and you need to know about every major story that comes out in your fields of expertize.

This is why you need Pulse, an application by LinkedIn that will take into consideration your requests and interests and use them to create a news feed for you that you can read while waiting for other things.

Information is blog’s lifeblood, and good information is the key to success. Yet there are simply too many things in today’s busy world in order to stay on top of everything important, much less the chaff of the internet.

The good news to this matter is that Pulse uses professional opinions from LinkedIn in order to determine what articles make the cut for your eyes. If you aren’t sure if you’re getting the right feed, then change your settings and see what you can find.

Pulse is available on iTunes and Android and is a great companion for those with a LinkedIn account or a desire to constantly learn.

Evernote

Whatever your purpose in writing a blog, you have a lot of things to remember and a lot of notes to take. Evernote is your best hope to keep your appointments and notes in order so that you can spend less time organizing and more time blogging. In short, it helps you stay more productive.

Considering how it is by far the most popular third party app for scheduling and note-taking, you will be glad to know that it deserves its sterling reputation. You can take notes of more than just text.

Photographs and other forms of data are welcome for your record-keeping purposes, and there are options that allow you to collaborate with other users if your blog requires it.

While there is a premium option available that might worry or intrigue you, the main difference is the amount of data you are allowed to use. If you use text for the most part, then you will be fine with the free version.

For more data-intensive notes involving audio or photos, then you will want to get an inexpensive premium subscription. You can find Evernote for any major smartphone OS.

Diigo

While Evernote is a great app for personal note taking and organization, Diigo really shines in the areas of research and annotation.

In addition to allowing screenshots and annotation, the application will actually save your annotations for later visits to the same page and uses an account you can save information to. Tagging and note-taking are easy, and you will get used to it quickly.

One of the best features on Diigo is an outliner which will either organize your information for you or otherwise follow your customizable instructions to organize it.

Another great part of the app is the varied tools that they have for groups and the sharing options within those groups. If you are a blogger that collaborates often, then Diigo is the perfect app for you.

You can download an app to help you on either your iPhone or Android device. It would be wise to investigate their website for more information and tools.

These five apps will help you to make your place in the world of blogging and enable you to continue to manage it on the go.

Whether it is research, protection or management tools that you need, you can be sure that there will be something to help you. Used together, there will be nothing that cannot stop the dedicated mind.

What other must-have applications do you use when you blog? Share in the comments below.
