Why? Because the higher your Domain Authority, the stronger your potential to rank for those all-important money phrases, the commercial-intent words people search for when they look for your services.
So here's the big question: how can you increase your Domain Authority? In other words, how can you attract links from other websites? The quality and quantity of links from other sites to yours determine your authority. So how do you make links happen?

In the last decade, advances in biotechnology catapulted the study of ancient DNA into a new and exciting era.
