    Thank you so much for your response, Well for creating links I was using many white hat seo options like article submission, social bookmarking and even old method directory submission but response was very slow or some times nothing got changed, so if you or any member can elaborate a little bit that which method should I use to create quality Back link and increase PA/DA

    When your speaking about Domain Authority, I assume that you are trying to increase DA/PA for Google.

    Links can help sometimes, but they can also hurt. Especially if you don't know the difference between what is a 'good' link and what is a 'bad' link.

    A lot of people(me included) believe that Google awards "Domain Authority" not just for having good inbound links, but awards 'DA' for the behavior of the site in general.

    In other words, if your buying or selling links and google finds out (and they will) whatever DA your site has is going to be negative. Because google has decided that sites that buy or sell links are all low quality and according to the googlies if you link to low quality sites... your site must be low quality as well....

    Out bound links carry a lot of weight in determining DA. If your linking to Link selling networks or other 'bad' neighborhoods what ever DA your site has is going to be negative.

    You walk a fine edge when trying to market a website in today's online market place, if you want the free organic traffic from the SE's the best and easiest way, IMO, is to play by their rules.

    I have to say that nowadays article submission, social bookmarking and especially directory submission are not going to give you much impact. Before Google Penguin article submission really worked well for me and I ranked on page 1 for excellent long-tail keywords that way. As soon as they rolled out Penguin those pages disappeared from search and I learned that 100 articles linking to 1 page that all use the same keyword anchor text was creating a negative affect so be careful when doing this. Apparently, if you use your domain name as the anchor text you do not get a negative affect but treat carefully. Saying all this and putting rankings to one side, these kinds of actions are still great for getting site awareness out there.

    Good quality links are links that come from a well ranked site in your niche, preferably are in-content, contain unique anchor text and ofcourse will be difficult to obtain as people are not lining up in the gaming sector to link out to any old site on request. One solution is to build up relationships with other webmasters in your niche and try to agree with some kind of exchange. Straight link exchanges from links pages do not works so well anymore but are still worth going for IMO. In my experience, what does work really well is guest blogging. Find other similar sites and both agree to provide each other with a content piece for publishing on each others site that contains an in-content link back to your site and make the exchange. Its a lot of work but I have found that 1 link generated like this often has more value than 1 article with links submitted article to 100 article sites.

    Please note that this is just my opinion, others might have a different view and I would like to open it up to get opinions of others.

    Social stuff like Tweets and FBshares and likes is starting to affect the rankings more and more. Focus on the stuff already mentioned, but don't forget social!

    Page Authority (PA) and Domain Authority (DA) are simply Open Site Explorer's measure of quality and quantity of links pointing to a domain/page (similar, but obv not the same of PageRank).

    Therefore the only way to increase these metrics is to increase the quantity and quality of incoming links to your site. A word of warning though, PA & DA are not the holy grail, and focusing purely on these link metrics will not guarantee success/rankings. They're simply one part of the (large) SEO puzzle. There's actually a great article on this on the Moz blog - seomoz.org/blog/going-beyond-moz-metrics-to-answer-why-is-this-site-outranking-me

    Cheers

    For improving DA you might follow the following step

    1. Unique, Informative and Useful Content: Think from readers prospective

    2. Build a Diversified backlink profile:
    * collect good backlinks using different sources i.e blogs, websites, forums, social profiles, ezine etc.
    * collect link from only quality sites
    ** how many links u have got in total desn't matter, what matters is from how many root domains u are availing the links and how authentic the source of the backlinks are
    ** collect backlinks for all the top pages, it's not enough to make your homepage popular but you need to make your top pages, categories popular too.

    3. Keep updating your site

    This should help u to reach to a nice DA.

    Thanks

    If a webmaster pays an advertising fee for their link to be on high ranking sites, site wide in their niche. Does google look at that as a negative?

    See Gary Beal's response above:
    Sitewide links on other high-ranking and related sites.
    If you know who he is then you will know you can take it as gospel that sitewide links on high ranking sites in your niche will do your site plenty good... provided that is, that Google doesnt somehow know you paid for the link.

    What's the idea of increasing your DA and PA? If I knew you well enough I'd show you two pages of mine that rank 1st on money keywords where my DA/PA is twice as low as the 2nd and the 3rd.

    Manmade numbers will never be as accurate as Google's algo so why even bother. Perhaps bragging rights, but that's useless when it comes to rankings. Anyways if there's even 1 example ( and I can give you 4 myself) where DA/PA affects in no way rankings, then there goes the whole theory.
