Explaining Some SEO Terms

Link Building

While “building” sounds like this activity involves creating links to your website yourself, link building actually describes the process of earning links to your site for the purpose of building your site’s authority in search engine

Domain Authority (DA)

DA is a Moz metric used to predict a domain’s ranking ability; best used as a comparative metric (ex: comparing a website’s DA score to that of its direct competitors).

Spam Score

A Moz metric used to quantify a domain’s relative risk of penalization by using a series of flags that are highly correlated with penalized sites.

How does it works?

Different URL shortener has different Moz DA score and spam score. Ideally, you would want to get links from the highest MOZ DA Score and the lowest MOZ Spam Score.  Bit.ly is perfect for this.
