DA is a metric that Moz invented, it stands for "domain authority".

It's designed to predict how well a domain will rank in search engines, but if you dare question rand about such things he will get very mad.

Are you serious Barry? WTF

It's important to remember that Rand Fishkin is a guy who travels around the world, speaking at conferences about something he used to do 12 years ago but now spends his time being an author and magician. He only has the time to travel so much because he got fired from his own company for running their market leading company into the fucking ground, but that's for another day.

Lets not forget, this "industry leading" SEO couldn't rank for his own brand name not long ago.

He thought he had a penalty and didn't realise Google is much slower than when he last did SEO:

Are other folks seeing the Google penalty on @sparktoro lifted? These are my results (but not sure if it's geo or IP-biasing for me) pic.twitter.com/jwSk0WpvlN

Rand has nothing to do with Moz anymore, other than he owns some shares in it.

You can learn more about DA here, you know it's a good guide because they used an off brand human with coloured hair:

Domain Authority was adjusted this week, they have recalculated it based on the information they now have in 2019 opposed to the old information they were using from 2015 or whatever.

Domain Authority literally does not mean shit though, remember this. It's effectively a random number generator.

Google do not use DA, the only people that do are link sellers.

Don't worry about DA, it will be more productive is you spend your time counting your own fingers.

Hope this helps

Also, IIRC, DA and PA (the other Moz metric) update literally once per month (roughly) at a prescheduled date. That's in contrast to, for example, the Ahrefs metrics, which IIRC update every 15 minutes, or at least a few times per day.
