Topic : Domain Authority
Domain Authority is a score (on a 100-point scale) developed by Moz that predicts how well a website will rank on search engines. Use Domain Authority when comparing one site to another or tracking the “strength” of your website over time. —Moz
It is based on data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank and MozTrust scores, and dozens of other factors. It uses a machine learning model to predictively find an algorithm that best correlates with rankings across thousands of search results that we predict against. Regardless of Moz this and that just follow these ten Commandments below.
There is no Good or Bad domain Authority, it is rather a measure of competitive resources.
Domain Authority vs Page Authority : Any difference? Yes, Domain Authority measures the predictive ranking strength of entire domains or sub-domains and pages, Page Authority measures the strength of individual pages.
