How To Increase The Power Of Your Domain Name #Slidegraphic

Increase Domain Authority

What is your site’s domain authority?

You can check it here:  Open Site Explorer

You can see the Jason Fox Blog domain authority in the image on the right.

A good score is 3o or above.  If you are not at or above 3o you may want to know how to increase the power of your domain name. (this is just my opinion and there is no actual good score documented by the website)

Having a high Domain Authority does not mean that you have a suc·cess·ful website, likewise, having a low Domain Authority does not mean that you don’t have a suc·cess·ful website.

Increasing your Domain Authority loosely means increasing your chances of ranking higher in search engines.

If you do rank higher in search engines that will generally translate to more traffic, leads, sales, shares, links, etc… and that is success.

Increasing your Domain Authority is based on the number, and quality of the links that are coming to your website.  Getting more links to your website may seem like some hardcore SEO stuff, but not really.  Especially with the Google Algorithm Change, Hummingbird.  It is about tightening up your website, posting great content, promoting your content, quality branding, a social media presence, and leveraging other website owners.
