Domain authority (DA) is something that everybody in the SEO industry talks about. Aside from the relevance of a website, DA is the key defining metric when it comes to pitching to your clients how much a paid collaboration with you is worth approximately. Do note, however, that the Domain Authority by Moz is not be confused with Ahref’s Domain Rating (DR), where the 2 metrics measure entirely different things.
Take for example, at the point of writing, our site Guidesify has a relatively high domain rating of 64 (not to brag) but a much lower domain authority of only 56.
Hence, without much further ado, here are the top ways we use to check any domain’s domain authority in a blip!
Due to popular demand, the Guidesify team has painstakingly picked up programming and developed our online tool for our readers. This tool is free forever and all we expect in return is your email address.
We believe our bulk checker tool stands out from the rest as it checks beyond domain authority and page authority. Users are also able to view the spam score, a recent metric developed by Moz, and the total number of backlinks pointing towards the checked URLs. This is never before seen on any other third-party bulk checkers.
On top of that, we have also come up with a guesstimate metric called Ranking Potential, or RP for short.
This letter-graded metric is our bold attempt to help newbies make sense of the data presented to them. So why are you still here?
The Traditional Way: Moz Link Explorer
Check your DA with the creator of Domain Authority of course!
The Link Explorer feature allows users to do an in-depth review of the URL or domain they are trying to analyse.
For starters, the tool consists of the following research data:
Checking Domain Authority On-Demand
Moz also offers a Google Chrome Extension MozBar which allow Moz users to display only the Page Authority (PA) and Domain Authority of the current page they are currently surfing on.
The main perk of this on-the-go Moz tool is that it does not consume any free search queries for the month. However, users must be logged in to utilise the Chrome extension.
Activating the extension is as simple as clicking on the Moz logo.
If activated on a regular Google search results page, the MozBar tool will display both PA and DA below every search result, as shown in the screenshot below:
This will help SEO professionals analyse the SERPs quickly, giving them an additional edge to outrank their competitors.
Rankz.io’s Bulk Domain Authority Checker
Looking for a third party tool after using up Moz’s free queries for the month?
Or looking for a bulk checker tool for DA?
Well, most bulk checkers have a tiny limit of up to 10-20 domains at a time. While the rest of the online checkers that boast a larger limit usually don’t deliver or are filled with gimmicks.
So not much of a “Bulk DA Checker” in our opinion.
Nevertheless, after months of searching and testing, the Guidesify team recommends using Rankz.io. It allows users to check up to 250 domains at a time, which is considerably much more than any other online tool on the internet.
Users can even export results into a CSV file, an intuitive feature that is somehow never available on any of its competitors’ tools.
The downside to this tool?
Rankz.io, unfortunately, limits free checks just like Moz, so make sure you have tons of domains to check at one go! Checking the same bulk of domains between short intervals is also not advised as the tools will not fetch a new set of data again.
