    The only Guest post doesn't help improve DA. there are other factors which matter to improve DA of your site.

    • There are many factors, which can influence on DA, including but not limited with domain age, amount and quality of baclinks mostly.
      Backlinks helps to stabilize website in the Google Search Result, making it fixed with high position. To clean up your profile you need preferably, using Ahrefs, Broken Links Disawov, other programmes, find out Broken Links (finding old ones (low traffic, not relevant links)), which should be removed and not forget to build new ones through famous marketing methods. Linking profile is hugely important for DA level.

        WTF has domain age got to do with DA?
        MOZ do NOT use it in the DA calcualtions

    Why do you care about DA so much? What you should be watching is that if there are any rank improvements for those links or not.

    Hello,

    Moz index updates about once a month and it might take about 1 or 2 updates to show up your links & update domain authority and page authority. So, your data will take about 1 to 2 months to update.

    We can not say about the MOZ's DA update exactly. But usually MOZ will update the DA in two months once. If you run the MOZ SEO campaign you can easily know about their next update of their crawling process and DA updating process.

    Hey,
    Similar to Google, MOZ also has a big directory that contains a ton of pages.
    Moz uses the MOZscap API to analyse each page available in its directory.


    As per my knowledge, sometimes Moz update its DA score twice in a month, or sometimes it takes more than a month.

    However, Moz has not declared the fix time interval.

    According to Moz, DA is not an absolute value instead it's a relative value. It means Moz does not only check your site's DA factors and update the value for your site individually. Instead of that, it checks the entire directory and calculates the relative importance of your site.

    MOZ's API see the domains (Including you domain) that are playing well and shift the whole scale resulting, increase in DA.

    Sometimes you see a drop in DA. It is because the domains that were poor has now become powerful later on.

    I hope it would help you...

        Yes, I know all are not the absolute DA factor that's why I use the word 'probably'...

        By the way, thanks for your feedback.

          .
          Bullshit. You have no clue about how DA is calculated and you should not be posting such bad advice. Suggest you actually read the MOZ site as to what goes into the DA calculation and then you will see that most of what you wrote about is nonsense. You should be embarrassed with that article.

      Sorry to be blunt, but this article is really bad. Almost the entire thing is wrong and misleading.

      I'll just pick out a few examples, but almost all 40 of those things are wrong.

      Readability - Moz does not have the ability to evaluate content.

      Content length - Total BS. Domains in auction keep their DA even though they are showing a parked page with basically no content.

      Quality of content / uniqueness - See both the above points.

      Page speed - There is zero indication that Moz is measuring this anywhere.

      CTR - Moz has no idea what the CTR is of any page on the internet.

      Domain with keyword - DA has nothing to do with any keywords. Moz doesn't even know what keywords a domain ranks for.

      User experience - Moz does not have any data on user experience, so how can that be a factor of DA?

      SSL Security - Nope. Remove a SSL certificate or add a new one. You will see zero impact on DA.

      Pop up ads - Moz doesn't track this.

      Content flow - Nope. Moz does not analyze the content of pages in calculating DA.

      Actionable content - Moz is not capable of measuring that.

      Google penalties - They have no idea if a domain is penalized or not.

      Local SEO - What does this have to do with DA?

      Single niche blog - Unlike what you said, Google does not "prefer" a single niche blog versus a multi-niche blog. The proof is in the SERPs. Moz doesn't care either.

      Bounce rate - Moz has no idea what the bounce rate is of any page on the internet.


      About the only thing you got correct in that article is that links impact DA. It's only links in the Moz database though.

    To sum, Moz is a very unreliabale guide when it comes to assigning any SEO value to a domain so I would not stress over how quickly (or slowly) it updates DA

    I use DA values only as a relative guide and you should not stress over it

    No one really knows how Google is reacting to ranking sites, if you got low DA sites ranking in top positions it's time to look at on page factors and off page factors to see if you can see opportunities

    other than a relative guide DA values are not worth worrying about get your content out there and focus on that once you see the trends of the ranking sites

    I don't care when and how Moz DA works until my links are appearing in Google search. Focus on Google rather than focusing on Moz

    For me, you can check your DA every end of the month because it helps you also to monitor if you are doing right or not.

      You shouldn't need any tool to tell you if you are doing things correctly.

      Check your analytics instead it will give you a clear idea, whether or not you are doing great.

    How about a much better plan? ... Continue to work on content that you think will be helpful and engaging while at the same time, building backlinks to that great content.

    Stop looking at things like DA and constantly checking your rankings and other analytics. Be proactive and let the chips fall where they may. Chances are, if you keep to the basics - publish great content/get good, real backlinks - everything else will take care of itself.

  • Domain Authority 2.0 is a new update by Moz. In this update, Moz introduces some new parameters for calculating Domain Authority.

    Google Changes there algorithm frequently. So the Domain ranking Factors also need to be updated. So the Moz who created Domain Authority introduce us Domain Authority 2.0.

    If your website is new don't bother, but if you have existing or old website you need to update often with your website pages for your target audience. Don't focus on how long it will update but focus on your target users.

    As per my experience, Moz seems to update DA about once per week or month for most websites but if you have a large website or experienced major changes in content, keywords, organic traffic or backlinks then you may see updates more often.

      You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. Do you even know what DA is an how it is calculated? What does "changes in content, keywords, organic traffic" have to do with DA?
