If the title confuses you don’t worry. Id expect even intermediate SEOs are not familiar with all of those letters. Domain Authority or DA is a well established SEO metric by Moz.com that many often confuse with Google’s ranking of keywords.  Lets just remind everyone interested in their DA …that it has NOTHING to do with Google’s search results.  It MAY be based on some of the same similar metrics as Google uses but its just a number someone other than Google guessed.
