Domain Authority is a good measure of whether your Blog attracts visitors or followers and becomes a reference site for many people.
It was measured using the Semrush website. Of course, the IoT World blog (ranked 23) which has been in existence for many years can be ranked better than my less than a year-old personal Mazlan Abbas Blog (ranked 9).
However, after listening to the Blog Millionaire podcast, I have some ideas of how to increase the Domain Authority and get some of the posts into the first page of Google search.
To rank website domain authority.
(Source: “What is a Good Domain Authority? Find Out How it Benefits your SEO Strategies“):
- Scores between 40 and 50 are considered average.
- Domain Authority between 50 and 60 must be rated as good.
- Scores above 60 rate the Domain Authority as excellent.
After checking through semrush, it was discovered that my IoT World blog traffic dropped tremendously since Oct. 2020. I am not really sure what happened – something which is worth to be investigated.
The IoT Blog is mainly information in nature, topics that covered the various aspects of the Internet of Things, IR 4.0, and Digital Transformation.
My Company website, FAVORIOT, has a higher domain even though it was launched in 2017. Probably it was because the backlinks that it received from various websites.
