DA is in the double digits! 🎉

Brayden 👋 @BraydenTW

10 is a beautiful number. 😄

Want to know why? It's because that's the new DA (domain authority) of buildfaster.co!

Yes! gif

After a month, I've finally broken into the double digits. This helps my ranking on Google search and sets me up for success and more organic traffic.

You all have been great. If you want to join BuildFaster on this crazy ride 🎢, then give this post a like and follow us on Indiehackers.

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Congrats! Silly question, but where do you find that number?

    Good job Brayden! I always have a tough time with SEO so seeing founders like you take a step forward I feel more inspired!

    That's great Brayden.
    I run a link building business so live in the world of DA/DR. I would look to Ahrefs metrics as a more robust way of measuring but tbh its pointless if your not :

    1. Building content that answers the key questions in your space/teaches/informs and importantly contains the keywords you want to rank for. Google is increasingly rewarding sites that have the whole corpus around a subject.
    2. You need to build links to that content. Links are still the lifeblood of search. Links from relevant sites are the best but we have found that links from higher DR sites where your providing relevance at the page level (a guest post for example) are just as good.

    I say all this having worked with companies from SaaS through to gambling and having seen what works.

      Thanks for these tips @Anfirld69!

      I’ll work on writing content for BuildFaster in the coming weeks :)
