Domain Authority

There are numerous signals that the search engines consider when ranking a website and as we know the search engines are constantly tweaking these algorithms and giving more or less weight to certain factors in order to improve search results and combat web spam. While we don’t know exactly how much of a factor it is compared to other signals, we do know that one of the things that the search engines consider is the authority (or power) of the domain of the website.

  • Choosing nice domain name+domain age : You can buy old domains from GoDaddy or other domain sellers from their auction portals. And in this way you will be saved the hassle of making a domain age well with time by working your brains out on it. An easy to discover domain name which is short i.e max 15 characters also helps a lot!
  • Building back links : Seriously everything that needs to be told about this already has been told 
Just focus on diversifying your link portfolio i.e. try to get links from different sources rather than all emanating from one.
Tweeting from a high authority profile also leads to consistent back link generation.
  • Writing better : If you consistently churn out 3 or more than three 1000 words+ articles per week with solid on page SEO, then there’s no stopping you. This is by far the best method for increasing domain authority.

  • Social Signals : Google has now started scraping the old page rank only system to some extent. This is visible to a great extent when sites with low or no page rank rank higher in SERPS for really competitive search queries. This is the age of +1′s, re-tweets and likes. So make sure your content gets noticed more on Social Media. Make a following of genuine people who love and share your content, rather than bots/zombie people who just sit and don’t even notice.
