The three major reasons of decreasing domain authority of a site

Here are the 3 major reasons of why domain authority of your website or blogging site can be decrease:

Bad links to your website:

Most of the site owners understand that backlinks are good for a site and it is also good for ranking better. Backlinks do a lots for your website also. But the most important thing is that in which kind of websites are linking to your website. Always remember that linking your site to bad backlinks is harmful for your site. Only few bad backlinks or even only one backlink can decrease the domain authority of your site.

What Is Domain Authority And Why You Need To Improve It?

And one thing you should always remember, never buy backlinks from anyone or from any backlink provider. You can find so many Fiverr sellers are selling backlinks. Never buy these types of backlinks. There are some sites that have to close their blogging life because they bought these types of backlink. They find a large decrease in search traffic that it was not easy for them to recover.

Poor quality of content on your site:

Google always love to those blog sites which have great content and care for their readers. If you just want to increase the number of contents of your site without caring for your readers then you definitely see that domain authority of your site decreased. It will also be the reason of decreasing organic search traffic. If you are running a blogging site then always try to write blog posts within a minimum of 800 words. you should have sufficient content in each of the blog posts on your blog. So always write useful content without only for increasing the number of a blog post.

How To Improve Or Increase Domain Authority Of Your Site?

One thing I want to inform you that there are lots of blogs that started and they got more than 1000 visitors each day for less than 100 or for only about 50 blog posts. The reason behind it is that these blogs contain useful and sufficient content. Each of the blog posts on these blogs is useful.

Poor and bad quality of external links with dofollow on your site:

If your site contains poor quality of external site links with dofollw than it will be so bad for your site. I recommend and always suggest you use nofollow for external links of your website. Dofollow for bad and non-reputed sites can harm your site incredibly that even you can’t think.

These are the three major reason for a website or blog for decreasing the domain authority. now I think you will be aware of this and always maintain your site in the right way. thanks for reading this blog post.

    Thanks for writing this post, but I have few questions in my mind, recently while talking to some of my website’s potential buyers, found out that Domain authority is one factor that can fetch me some extra money, but I am confused on how can I quickly increase it, whether I should invest my time or let it be?

    Also While researching about DA, I have found out another metric called MajesticSEO Trustflow, is it also worth following & working?

    Looking forward to a quick response.

    what will happen if someone link my website on an unknown language website content.

    • Faruque Ahamed Mollick says:

      If the Domain Authority of that site is good, then it is okay, but if the DA is low, it can harm your site. Well, a site with good DA and have the language other than your site will not help your site effectively, but it will not harm.
