11 Tactics To Improve Website Domain Authority
#01. Content is The King
Always mark this phrase in your mind — “Content Was The King, Content Is The King & Content Will Be The King.”
If you are a blogger and content marketer then I don’t think. I have to tell you about the value and importance of content.
Make your content for the audience not for the crawlers. When the user will find it useful, Google will love it and you will get a higher and higher ranking.
Higher ranking you will get, more value of your domain gets created. That ultimately increases website domain authority.
#02. Build Quality Backlinks
Building Backlinks isn’t a very big task but building quality and natural backlinks is a very lengthy task.
Don’t do spamming. Make Backlinks in a good and natural manner that Google loves.
I would like to request you to build backlinks that can drive some referral traffic to your website.
When I was doing a study of my website and finding key factors that help me to improve the website domain authority.
I found quality backlinks with some referral traffic was one of the key factors that helped me to boost my website domain authority.
#03. Social Signals are Helpful
I always used to read articles that tell the importance of social signals for SEO.
I agree that social signals are good for SEO.
But, In my case, it helped out to increase website domain authority.
I always used to answer on Quora and one of the answers gets ranked in Google along with my website URL and that helped me to drive some traffic to my website.
I will suggest you try this one. Leverage social media to drive some traffic to your website.
#04. Interlinking Is The Key
Interlinking always played a very important role in SEO and domain authority is also part of SEO.
So, why aren’t Leveraging it?
Do interlinking but in a good manner. Don’t make it robotic.
I will suggest you do interlinking manually and always make sure that the word you are linking have sense.
Because as we know interlinking passes link juice and helps humans and bots to follow the link. That helps in ranking.
A higher ranking means more traffic and it ultimately boosts website domain authority.
#05. Disavow Bad Links

More crawling means more fast indexing and fast indexing + regular Content will boost your domain authority.
