    Authority is a qualitative measure of any web property that significantly affects the property’s overall visibility and rankings in search engines. Domain authority offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how, where, and when you create content and links. The flip side is the amount of time and effort it takes to increase – far more than page authority.

    Domain authority and page authority also have a mutually beneficial relationship, building more links to your individual pages will have the effect of raising your domain authority, and raising your domain authority in general will increase the page authority of your individual pages.

    Page authority also builds faster than domain authority, giving you a critical advantage if you need to improve search engine rankings for one page quickly. Eventually, thanks for sharing your wonderful experience regarding this topic.
