What Is Domain Authority?

Domain authority, a concept originally developed by in 1999, is the score provided by Moz to determine a website’s relevancy and its likelihood of ranking highly in the SERPs (search engine results pages). Domain authority is determined by a handful of factors, like expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness (EAT), the total number of links on the site, and citations and backlinks from other, more authoritative sites.

Domain authority scores typically range from 0-100 with an average between 40-50, and while having a high domain authority score is a big plus, the score does not absolutely determine a site’s ranking on the SERP. A domain authority score represents the site’s likelihood of ranking higher, and the higher a site’s score is, the more likely it is to appear on the first page of Google.
