High Domain Authority Websites And Links Explained

Table of Contents

High websites are the websites that have established a good amount of trust and niche authority in search engines. Authority is usually gained by the domain age, quality, and content size.

Authority websites are the most preferred kind of websites when a search engine wants to rank the websites. This is also openly said by Google in their SEO documents.

On every Google core update, like Google's most recent November 2021 core update, it clearly mentioned in the tweet to check the SEO documents. And the documents tell you to concentrate on the .

stands for Expertise, Authority, and Trustworthiness. It was first mentioned by Google and since then it's the most used acronym by SEOs.

What is an Authority Website?

An authority website is a website that has gained major trust from Google and is considered the first to be evaluated when ranking for keywords. An authority website is the first preferred choice by Google to rank for important keywords.

An authority website gains its authority based on various factors. But the most important factors are the domain age, and brand popularity.

This kind of authority website is preferred over other websites that are new for SEO rankings for various keywords. These websites have thousands of visitors every day and their articles are shared all over the internet on various platforms like social media networks.

When a website gains trust and authority in the eyes of Google spiders, it starts gaining high rankings for various search terms.

Authority Website Examples

An authority website can be found in almost all niches on Google. It can be easily identified by the number of articles, writers and quality content on various topics.

It is a good practice to showcase user activity on a website in its post comments, or social media shares. This helps improve the SEO of the website too.

Authority websites tend to flaunt their blog posts popularity. This will also help you recognize the authority of a website.

Another way to recognize an authority website is by checking its domain metrics in any of the free SEO tools like . When you input a domain name and check its domain overview in the Semrush dashboard, it shows all the basic and important information about the authority website domain.

SEMRUSH AUTHORITY SCORE CHECK

As you can see in the above image, we used the Semrush tool to calculate the authority score of Semrush itself. Similarly, you can search for other websites in your niche and find their authority score to see their authoritativeness.

An authority score in the range of 65 – 100 is considered good by the search engine spiders. It helps understand the EAT value of a website.

Some other examples of authority websites are:

  • Amazon.com
  • Youtube.com
  • Google.com
  • Reddit.com
  • Tumblr.com

And the list goes on.

These websites have authority in every niche as they are very big in size and have huge content in them.

But Google also classifies authority websites in specific niches. For example, the list of authority websites for SEO is:

  • moz.com
  • ahrefs.com
  • searchenginejournal.com
  • semrush.com
  • searchenginewatch.com
  • backlinko.com

When you search for any generic search keyword on Google, you will most probably see one or more than one of the websites in the top 10 search results. This shows that Google trusts these websites and has given them authority over other websites like ours, UnderWP.

Authority Backlinks

is an important part of any that aims to get on top of search results. Building backlinks are the most important ranking factor for any website.

Building good backlinks for your website gets you the T (Trustworthiness) of EAT points in the eyes of Google bots. Google uses these backlinks to give a page rank to a website and its pages.

There is one wonderful article written by Danny Sullivan on the blog of Search Engine Land here: https://searchengineland.com/google-authority-metric-274231

GOOGLE PAGE RANK FOR AUTHORITY WEBSITE

The above post was written after an interview with one of the most prominent Google engineers called Paul Haahr. He is one of the smartest Google engineers I have been following over the years. You get to learn some highly valuable information when Paul talks.

In the above post, when you read the second paragraph, it clearly says that Google doesn't just reward the website pages that have lots of links but also the quality of links. This is a very important point to be learned here.

Building just links to your websites is not enough, but a high quality link building service is very important too. Check out our affordable and monthly building service here:

BACKLINKS RANKING SIGNAL FOR AUTHORITY

Further, in the same article, you see the above two paragraphs. It is clearly answered by Google that there is no single signal that is considered to be an authoritative signal for a website. It is a mix of various signals that decide the authority factor of a website and its pages.

We dug furthermore to find the importance of to a website. And we found this tweet.

TWITTER EAT ANSWER GOOGLE

Here it is clearly answered by one of the members of the quality team that the authority of a website is largely affected by links and mentions on other authoritative websites. A very important point to be noted.

This tweet from 2018 solves a big mystery of authority backlinks. It says clearly that getting backlinks from an authority website of your niche is very valuable and helps you increase your website authority as well.

Final Words

Building an authority website is a time consuming and expensive option. Big companies hire a team to build an authority website.

This is the reason websites with good authority charge a huge amount for giving your website a link. When we do guest posting service for our clients, we see prices ranging from $600 to $10,000 for a single backlink from an authority website.

  • yaswanth avatar yaswanth Now I use the Search console live URL inspector. It shows the page source and screenshot with an error(If any).
    Result: The page is not mobile friendly in the screenshot. All the element's styles are broken.

    Now, I feel like, " What the hell is happening in rich result tester? The google bot shows everything is ok, and in the search console, this is happening."

    # Problem Digging Stage final stage - Solving the problem
    The easiest way to solve the problem is to compare the thing and find the difference.
    Is rich results tester a google bot? Yes!
    Is it owned by google? Yes!
    Is it have any link with the official search console crawler? No!

    Now, What is the difference between 2 crawlers?
    Their IPs are different. They work differently.

    Summary: Google bot (Offical bot) is not able to crawl all elements in the webpage. It is not able to read all styling files. All other bots(services that use crawl as Google Bot) can view/crawl the page.

    List of official google bot IPs: https://developers.google.com/search/apis/ipranges/googlebot.json

    Solution: Rather than digging into all files, we changed the hosting server located in the exact location.

    Thank you for reading this article. It takes a few mins to read this article, but It took hours to find the correct problem with a solution. If you find this article valuable, give it a like and if you have any questions, feel free to ask them.
  • yaswanth avatar yaswanth Solving Critical Indexing Problem (CASE STUDY)

    Last week I received a message from a friend he is requesting me to help him index a page of his website. I said, " Wait, sometime google will index automatically" Then he said he was getting problem with his homepage. So, I started digging. First, I want to find the problem. Then all other things were easy.

    # Problem Digging Stage 1 - Analyze the top layers
    Checking the basic things
    1) No Index tags
    2) Canonical tags
    3) Website page Age

    Result: Nothing Found

    # Problem Digging Stage 2 - Getting Deeper
    1) Checking status codes (If there is any redirects, 404 error, or soft 404 errors)
    2) Using an SEO browser to check the web page accessibility
    3) Trying with different user agents

    Result: Nothing Found

    # Problem Digging Stage 3 - Analyzing and
    comparing past and current stages of webpage
    1) Checking the Wayback machine for any spam content history
    2) Checking the search console for errors
    3) Other page's indexability

    Result: I got some clue. Search console shows "Page is not mobile friendly."

    # Problem Digging Stage 4 -Finding the reason for the search console error.
    When I checked the web page with SEO Browser, the page was mobile friendly, and I also tried "crawl as Googlebot." Everything looks good. Then where is the problem?

    One thing was confirmed google is not able to view the webpage clearly. And all other bots are not getting any problems.

    So, I decided to use only google properties in the further process (Because only the google bot gets stuck).
    I selected three tools to process further.
    1) Google page speed insights
    2) Google rich results tester
    3) Search console Live URL inspector

    First, I used page speed insights to check If the google bot can crawl/view the page or not(If there are any issues in crawling, then the tool returns a lighthouse error)
    Result: everything is ok

    Second I used Google rich results tester. It provides the page source and screenshot of the webpage.
    Result: everything is ok

  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 <@211319858258771968> it sure will work. Make sure to write that it’s free to post as guests. A lot of websites do not mention this and writers usually think it’s paid opportunity only.

    Keep us updated of how well this goes for your website.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku Thank you so much for the detailed guide. I'll see if I can put up the Guest Post page to start with! I hope my email gets bombarded in a good way haha
  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 You should start putting up a page called Guest Posting on your other website where you put articles, etc.. and put all the requirements there which you are looking for in the guest posts. Make sure to leave your email as well for easier contacts.

    Build up some links to this page. Because most of the writers are looking to write for high metrics website that have good DA, TF, etc...

    Once you have a page setup it will help you get attention from people who are searching on Google.

    Next you can start sending the URL of this page to people whom you think might be interested to write for your service on social networks like twitter, linkedin, etc.

    Also list this page URL on websites that have posts like free guest posts list in SaaS, free guest posts list in "your niche", etc. Something like this: https://underwp.com/the-best-free-guest-posting-websites-list-in-2022-over-3000/

    These will get you enough traction to attract guest posts from various contributors over the time. Your email will be bombarded with emails following the above tips.

  • nkap avatar nkap <@341197404302737408> Just these:

    You can try 3 things: (I suggest you try the 3rd option first)

    1. If there are any links in your coverage report that’s actually not from your domain/property, I’d recommend you use the Search Console’s removal tool to remove these from your property.

    2. If you’re using any page builders like elementor etc make sure you turn off search engine indexing for things like templates. You can find this in Yoast SEO settings. With this setting your templates and unnecessary pages won’t be indexed. Are you using elementor by any chance?

    3. It’s also possible that your site has been hacked. If random URLs are appearing in analytics and search console the first thing that you should do is check your .htaccess file to see if someone has put any rewrite rules.
