SEO Tips – How to check the DA and the PA of a WordPress Website
In today’s digital world, everything is on the internet whether it is Buying, Selling. The whole internet works on websites having specific links and URLs.
The leading search engine is Google where every entrepreneur, SEO worker, Blogger, Writer, and other niche people want to have a website where they can showcase their talent, work, and provide people the best of their respective services.
Now, after all these things, the owner of those websites wants to check if his/her website is listed among the higher websites or among the lower websites.
In order to check this, Moz (SEO Software Company) developed the “Domain Authority” which is very useful for the website developers and owners. The definition of the Domain Authority and Page Authority is given below.
Domain Authority (DA) tells us the ranking, in the form of scores, of our website on Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). Domain Authority scores fall between 1 and 100. Ranking of the website depends upon “Page Speed”, “Optimized Content”, “Domain URL” and the list goes on. Domain Authority takes the whole website and shows the results.
Page Authority (PA) tells us the ranking, in the form of scores, of our website on Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs). Just like Domain Authority, Page Authority also ranges from 1 to 100, depending upon the ranking factors. Page Authority shows the results of the page individually.
New domains start from 1 DA and it increases by the time when the website meets the requirements and features of the high ranked website. Higher Domain Authority depends upon the Domain Authority of the websites with which you are competing. So this thing tells us that it doesn’t matter if you have the highest scores but you should have the higher authority ranks (which comes from the scores) than your competitors.
Let us explore some amazing useful tools which can help us to check the Domain Authority of our site.
