aBIZinaBOX Cannabis – Moz DA – 20

aBIZinaBOX Cannabis – Moz DA – 20 – that phrase probably doesn’t mean much to you, unless you are an SEO dork…like I have become. If you do know what it is, consider that our website was started on December 16, 2017 with a DA of 0 and we have climbed to 20 in seven months. Here is a matrix of the firms we view as closest direct competitors…

Domain Authority (DA) is a search engine ranking score developed by Moz that predicts how well a website will rank on search engine result pages (SERPs). A Domain Authority score ranges from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank.

Domain Authority is calculated by evaluating multiple factors, including linking root domains and the number of total links, into a single DA score. This score can then be used when comparing websites or tracking the “ranking strength” of a website over time.

You can view a website’s DA by using MozBar (a free Chrome-extension), Link Explorer (a backlink analysis tool), the SERP Analysis section of Keyword Explorer, and dozens of other SEO tools across the web.

What is a “good” Domain Authority

Generally speaking, sites with a very large number of high-quality external links (such as Wikipedia or Google.com) are at the top end of the Domain Authority scale, whereas small businesses and websites with fewer inbound links may have a much lower DA score. Brand-new websites will always start with a Domain Authority score of one.

Because Domain Authority is meant to be a predictor of a site’s ranking ability, having a very high DA score shouldn’t be your only goal. Look at the DA scores for the sites you’re directly competing within the SERPs and aim to have a higher score than your competitors. It’s best used as a comparative metric (rather than an absolute, concrete score) when doing research in the search results and determining which sites may have more powerful/important link profiles than others. Because it’s a comparative tool, there isn’t necessarily a “good” or “bad” Domain Authority score.

There are a number of other metrics that are certainly important such as Page Authority. This is a table from ahrefs.com which is a competitive tool to moz.com.

Page Authority (PA) is a score developed by Moz that predicts how well a specific page will rank on search engine result pages (SERP). Page Authority scores range from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank.

Page Authority is based on data from our web index and takes into account dozens of factors. Like Domain Authority, it uses a machine learning model to identify the algorithm that best correlates with rankings across the thousands of SERPs that we predict against, then produces Page Authority scores using that specific calculation.

We certainly realize that DA and PA are NOT the ultimate measures for choosing a cannabis industry CPA firm. However, we would all certainly agree that our presence in the market is important, and we couldn’t be more pleased at how aggressively we have moved right into the middle of the mix. We are very grateful to John Sidline of Canna Newswire, Sean Hocking of cannabislaw.report and Jefe Birkner for their advice and guidance in the journey.
