 Domain Rating (DR)

Domain Rating (DR) is a ranking metric developed by Ahrefs which shows the strength of a website’s backlink profile on a scale of 1 to 100. While Domain Authority (DA), on the other hand, is a metric developed by Moz that is a predictor of how well websites will rank on search engines.

Just to be clear, Domain Rating has no direct effect on a page’s ranking on Google. High DR websites tend to rank highly on SERPs only because they also score well on Google’s ranking algorithms (it’s correlation, not causation). However, DR is still a useful measure of gauging a website’s link popularity and its ability to get traffic from Google searches.

Ahrefs calculate the DR of a website in a number of ways. These include the number of unique domains having at least 1 dofollow link to the target website, the DR values of those linking domains, whether or not the link is dofollow or nofollow, and the number of unique domains each of those websites link to.

Domain Authority (DA)
Domain Authority (DA) is a search engine ranking metric developed by Moz that predicts how well a website will rank on search engine result pages (SERPs). Domain Authority scores range from 1 to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank. Moz arrives at a DA score using multiple factors such as the linking root domains, the number and quality of incoming and outgoing links and your domain age – along with a number of other factors.
