MOZ Domain Authority and NEW Extensions

MOZ Domain Authority and NEW Extensions - Wait for it..

MOZ domain authority and new domain extensions 2015

Some months ago we bought some new domains with the new extensions like .company, .today, etc. Though both domains are ranking well in the SERPS for their respective keywords, we've noticed that the Moz Domain Authority has held steady at 1, which every new site gets.

Patience, we thought. Patience. Well, finally we asked MOZ directly if they have issues and the new domain extensions, and what do you know?

YES, MOZ is having problems with setting domain authority for new domain extensions with Mozscape API connected products like the Firefox browser plugin. Here is what they said specifically on the FB conversation we had..

"You are correct. Unfortunately, we're still working on upgrades to our tools in order to better serve the new domain extensions. Right now, they are not working. We expect this work to be done within the first half of 2015...Specfically this affects our Mozscape API, which is used for DA, PA, and our OSE tool. Moz Analytics and our other tools are just fine with the new extensions."

So, there you have it. If you have a domain with a NEW extension such .gallery, .company, .today, etc, your domain authority will not change from 1 until some time in the first half of this year.

Does that mean you should not continue working on building great content and your in-bound marketing efforts? Of course not. It just means we have to wait little longer until the new domain extensions have been incorporated into MOZ. When they are, your sites DA and PA should increase dramatically if you've been practicing good content and in-bound marketing strategies.

You can stop obsessing about Page Rank now. Dec 2014

Most SEO and online marketing professionals know the Google tool bar Page Rank stopped being an effective indicator of a websites authority about a year ago. However, there is still tons of sites trying to sell advertising based on their websites "Page Rank" as well as individual companies obsessing about why their page rank has not gone up despite all their efforts of good brand seo.

Though Google still uses PR in the back end of the algorithm, they have said in their typical sideways fashion, they are most likely NOT going to be updating PR again. John Mueller from the Google Switzerland team said this in a video post to the official Google Webmaster channel.

SEO for doctors

The best physicians prize the opportunity to spend time one on one with their patients, getting to know their own personal needs. Unfortunately, in today’s healthcare environment, most physicians are so busy they simply do not have as much time as they would like for their much needed and sought after personal consultation with their clients. The various demands of seeing a full slate of patients, plus the myriad of daily tasks and a full load of responsibilities required of a doctor when not in consultation, can certainly deprive both the doctors and patients from having more of an opportunity for their much needed private and personal one on one communication.

Search Engine Optimization(SEO), used to be simple. You could spam away, with automated bots, and SEO was essentially a competition. The person who could spam the most, would be on page 1, and in the top positions. This was as a result of Google not “holding links against you.” The policy was, a low quality link wouldn’t hurt you, it just wouldn’t give you credit. With the release of the Penguin algorithm, this changed. Now, low quality links hurt you, and can prevent you from ranking well. In certain cases, you can even get a manual penalty as a result of excessive low quality backlinks. Even amidst all these algorithmic changes, the future of SEO is extremely clear. The emphasis is now on high quality Search Engine Optimization techniques. That means having not just “good,” websites, but instead having amazing websites. It means thinking about how to improve the user experience, thereby improving time spent on the website. It means building a user friendly navigation system on your website, and thereby making it easier for your users.
