This week we’re to write a ‘How To’ post.  I must admit I was scratching about trying to think of something relevant, but then during an online conversation with author friend Lucy V Hay, Lucy suggested a site that would help authors find out their domain authority, which is basically if their websites have a strong online presence or not.  Lucy’s site Bang2Write is full of helpful tips for authors and screenwriters:

To find your domain authority, Google ‘Domain Authority Checker’, and you’ll get this site:

You put your website’s URL into the box and tick ‘Display Social Score’, tick that you’re not a robot, and really that’s all there is to it.  My score was between 28 -39 for http://www.stevie-turner-author.co.uk and Lucy assures me this is a good solid domain authority (DA) score for a book blog, although for big business brands it would be a tad on the low side.

So…what’s your DA?  I’d love to know!
