My website is only a couple of months old. Majestic shows some stats, Google shows some backlinks, Pagerank checker also shows some stats for it.

But Moz shows nothing. Seems like my site is too young.

So what I would like to know is:
How do I increase DA?
And how old must a domain be before results will show at Moz?

    Why?
    DA is a metric that counts for nothing. It is not used as a metric by any search engine in their ranking algorithm.

    However, the only way to increase it is to get more links to the site and wait for MOZ to crawl and index the links and update their calculations.

    .... now sits back with popcorn to wait for all the clueless morons who have no idea what DA is to post. Threads on DA really do bring them out.

      Thanks cbpayne for the 2 great replies. I am getting rid of all those comments. I suppose it does look like I am a complete idiot allowing those comments.

      We’ve come to the very question this article attempts to answer: How do you improve your DA?
      Improving your link profile is a crucial issue that I’ve addressed in detail before.
      At the most basic level, to have a good link profile, you have to do two things:
      1. Get rid of bad links.
      2. Gain good links.
      Let’s deal with the first one — getting rid of bad links. This is pretty straightforward. You request the removal of these links, and if that fails, you disavow them. Done.
      Now, what about the second one — gaining good links? Realistically, you have two options. Option 1 is that you engage the services of an SEO agency that has relationships with websites and writers who can secure high-quality legitimate backlinks. This is a good option, but it is expensive and has risks.
      Option 2 is to create a site with high value information that elicits links by virtue of its awesomeness. That, my friends, is content marketing.
      What I’ve found is that content marketing is the solution to gaining DA. Although I’m still going to give you a list of things you can do to bump up your DA, I want to emphasize the most important factor: you improve your DA by doing content marketing well.
      So, let’s take a closer look at the 5 things you can do to improve your DA:
      The link you use to say that "You" addresses the issue is o post which is written by Neil Patel.
      I communicate with Him from time to time. Maybe I will make him aware of this reply you've written.

        Please don't! Patel's understanding of what DA is actually is woeful and not close to what MOZ use in the DA calculations.

          Thanks for that clarification.
          None the less Patel is high profile and Pankaj are stealing credit for Patel's work.

          Nope. Fail. You do not need any "research" and "experience" to know about DA. All you have to do is go to the MOZ website and read what they use to calculate DA. And you will see exactly what you and the other fools posting above have nothing to do with DA. You really need to stop posting in forums about something you clearly know nothing about.

            Thanks Payne. I suppose that is just what I should have done before starting this thread.

            It honestly astounds me that people keep on saying the same things even when they can see through the coarse of the thread that it is clearly not correct.

              It just shows why SEO forums have become such useless places.
              That do not read threads and engage in discussion. They just parrot (or copy and paste) what they read elsewhere.
              EXCEPT, I do like them in the hope that this is where my competitors get their info from.

      That is wrong. DA has nothing to do with traffic. DA is a metric put out by Moz, and Moz has no idea what your traffic looks like.

      It is Moz's metric, and they don't hide it. Why don't you people read directly from Moz's site what it is instead of just making up crap?

    Actually, if we talk about DA increase there is no 100% clear answer on how to increase it. It depends on many things like SEO effort you put and link building strategies you use. It can take from a month to half a year to see the results. We suggest to stick to white-hat SEO that definitely pays off in some time.

    By doing whatever it takes to get really high quality links and not worrying about anchor text, URL destination, etc.

    Go for the best of the best links, and plan ways to get them.

    For example, if you see an awesome resource page that has a high PA, then strategize a piece of content that would make a great fit for that page. Then get to know the webmaster (my favorite is by pointing out a broken link on one page or another; doesn't matter which page, just use this as your "in") and suggest the piece of content.

    You can write quality content and post it other guest blogging sites. By doing this way yu can increase DA for your website

    Domain authority is essential in terms of having your search engine rankings. If you have a domain authority that is very less, say 10-20 you wouldn’t be ranking well for your focused keywords. In the same way having a better DA score can do well if you are looking for more authority and you rank for more terms. This indirectly means you get better monetization offers through paid posts.

    If you want to increase domain authority, you need to keep the following points in mind.
    #1. Earn links from more sites
    #2. Start marketing your content
    #3. Not only diversification, but you also need a clean link profile

    1. The link in your website to depth, mean depth of links are sustainable connections together, connect the links in your website as much science as possible, as it is not the only lmtăng of the SKIN that help your website has a high trust helps SEO up faster and more stable than other websites. Linking articles together help for PR article or your page up all over.
    2. Link diversity is a concept Off-Page SEO you need to understand in order to increase the Domain Authority. Link diversity is the term SEO is used to decide the scope of the different links that point to your site. Next build the internal links you should use the foreign affiliate by the social network, the link from comment in other websites, the links from the image ...
    Create the need by the middle of the nofollow and dofollow backlink don't understand the use of nofollow backlink is thought, if your site has too many dofollow backlink but too little you should nofollow backlink watch.
    3. content is king but should create quality content and maintain the post quality articles regularly sharing helps your website get more traffic and increase SKIN index.

  • Site quality and content should matter more rather than where you are getting your back-links from!
    As suggested in this post by searchengineland.
    This indirectly increases your domain authority although it isn't the only way to increase DA,
    1]other factors include.....high quality link backs from .gov , .org , etc domains
    2]having verified social media accounts helps drastically
    3]sharing quality content/posts on social media to engage with audience counts as well

    There isn't a strictly defined strategy to increase DA of a site, however, following above mentioned steps will definitely help in increasing the brand awareness of your business/organisation.

      Care to explain WTF on-page factors have to do with DA? Do you even know how DA is calculated?

      As suggested in this post by searchengineland.
      This indirectly increases your domain authority although it isn't the only way to increase DA,
      1]other factors include.....high quality link backs from .gov , .org , etc domains
      2]having verified social media accounts helps drastically
      3]sharing quality content/posts on social media to engage with audience counts as well

      There isn't a strictly defined strategy to increase DA of a site, however, following above mentioned steps will definitely help in increasing the brand awareness of your business/organisation.
      You obviously have no clue what DA even is and how it is calculated. Suggest you make yourself familiar with it before posting junk in forums.

    These are all tools just to guide you, that won't bring you rankings if that is your main concern.

    Just focus on building high quality links - High DA, high TF and make it themed (to get the keywords ranked)

    Forget it CB, this thread is one big fail. Not only are they clueless about DA, they actually think it matters. Not to mention that people just post the same thing, even though it was just ruled idiocy.
