1) BUILD HIGH-QUALITY BACKLINKS
In my previous articles, I have already explained what high-quality backlinks mean. There are low-quality backlinks and high-quality backlinks. Low-quality backlinks do not make any positive impact on your website’s SEO score. Neither it will improve your DA. In some cases, low-quality backlinks can harm your SEO. Therefore, the only way to increase your Domain Authority is to build high-quality backlinks. Here are some of the features of high-quality backlinks.
a) Backlinks from high DA (Doman Authority) and PA (Page Authority) websites.
b) Dofollow backlinks
c) Backlinks from the websites that have the same niche as your web resource.
For a travel blog, it is better to get backlinks from other influential and famous travel blogs. Relevant backlinks make the strongest impact on a website’s DA.
2) A PERFECT ON-PAGE SEO
On-page SEO is the second most relevant SEO factor after backlinks. As I have previously explained, on=page SEO consists of various details such as focus keyword, keyword density, a slug of a page, count of words in an article, an image’s alt attributes, and some other things.
3) BE PATIENT
Domain Authority does not increase in a day or two. New websites will usually have DA 1 OR 2. It is a common thing, and therefore, you do need to worry much about that. Keep adding more high-quality content, and be patient.
Having a high DA is crucial for good SEO results. Concentrate your efforts to improve your website’s overall SEO, and thus you will improve your Domain Authority.
