    There are many factors in ranking a website. It could be a huge authority site but not ranking for what it should be if on-page SEO is bad.

    You also want to analyze your competition, your site and your keywords to see exactly how you compare to sites actually ranking and what you would have to do in order to rank higher than them.

    I can do this analysis for you, just contact me on skype: ThirdEyeSEO

    There are many factors for ranking.
    1. check on-page issue
    2. proper keyword research
    3. Link build

    High DA & PA does not mean higher ranking in search engines. You must have a strong back link profile to rank higher.

    And the most important thing is the content on your site. Your site should offer real value to your visitors.

    DA means nothing. That is the authority of the blogger.com domain, not the authority of your blog post. Your post is just one of millions on an over-saturated domain.

    If you do not take your own blog seriously enough to get it its own domain, why would Google take it seriously?

      I get what your saying about owning a domain and paid host but webpages hosted on blogspot rank all day long the same as a paid domain/host.

      As far as OPs DA/PA question, he's wasting his time worrying about DIY metrics that don't rank pages.

        Hey, if I write a 50,000 word post about car insurance quotes, with 100 youtube videos embedded, 100 links to authority sites, has 250 pictures, with perfect onpage SEO, on an exact match domain, what do you think would happen?

          It would obviously rip a hole in the space time continuum creating a paradigm shift on an epic scale.

            That's exactly what I was thinking.

            Man, Brain Dean did an 8,500 word post on a keyword with 1,600 global monthly searches... That guy must be seriously bored.

            Working on an article for a 3k a month keyword that people type into Google when they want to buy things with about 10% of the competition as any keyword with "SEO" in it.

            He must just do that stuff for giggles...

              That guy is a SEO genius and I'm guessing he's rank 1 and getting passive income from that long post now

                I'm not disagreeing here, but I know, SOMEWHERE, on his site, he talks about niche and keyword selection...

                He's kind of doing SEO for the sake of doing SEO... I'm sure it makes money but ... So does about 50,000 other things, all with way less competition, and some have way more traffic.

    what are the values your site offer to your visitors? I think this should be the most important content you should know first.

    Google knows that the DA is of the domain not your blog which is a subdomain. I am sure your domain is http:/www.yourblog.blogspot.com. Google knows that your blog is on a free blogging platform (especially blogger since its a Google service). Subdomains tend to perform poorly in search as well. I recommend getting your own domain and change from the sub domain to your new domain. I am not sure if you are able to 302 a blogger sub domain to a new domain but when building links to sites such a .blogspot.com or .wordpress.com that is basically building links for Blogger and Wordpress.

      Google doesn't give a rat's ass about DA. I'm sure they know it exists, but it's just a third party metric that's build to mimic their much more powerful metrics.

      Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
      Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

      What's your excuse?

    HIGH DA is because of the blogger blog, I would always advise you to start with your own domain name. But backlinks are what will make your website appear closely to #1
