Check Domain Rating — FREE, ACCURATE, EASY!

For your site to rank well in the search engines, backlinks are absolutely necessary. This is why building a solid backlink profile is so important. The stronger your backlink profile, in terms of quality and quantity, the better rankings your site will get.

The question? How do you measure your backlink profile?

It has a measuring system called Website Rating.


Domain Rating is a metric that shows the “link popularity” of your website compared to all other websites in the world.

It shows the strength of a given website’s overall backlink profile (in terms of its size and quality) and is measured on a “logarithmic scale” from 1 to 100, with the latter being the strongest.

  • Link popularity refers to a specific way that calculates website ratings.
  • The logarithmic scale means the gap between DR 82–83 is much bigger than between DR 22-23. In other words, the higher your DR gets, the more challenging it will be to grow it by another few points.

Domain rating is one of the most prominent metrics of SmallSEOTools. You can see it in nearly every one of their report.

Many people check it religiously because it gives an idea of how well a website is doing regarding links.

Domain Grade is not about the keywords your website ranks for, the search traffic it gets, or some type of website authority that your site has. Instead, it is primarily a calculation of your backlink profile.


The following points mentioned below let you know how to calculate DR:

  • The number of unique domains with at least one dofollow links pointing to your website.
  • The values of those domains (whose links are pointing to your website).
  • Each of those websites has a total number of unique outgoing links (to other sites).

After getting these three metrics, SmallSEOTools will then apply some mathematics and coding magic to calculate “raw” scores, after which they'll plot these scores on a 1–100 scale.

Understanding this calculation method helps you know how you can improve your Domain Rating. But here's what you also need to understand about improving your score per the calculations:

  • Only dofollow links improve Domain Grade. Thus, if the website is only linking to you via nofollow links, it won’t increase your URL reputation.
  • The more unique websites a site links to, the less points it will transfer to each of those sites.
  • The second, third and subsequent links from the same website will not improve your site's score.
  • If the linking website gets more backlinks and their rating increases, that will positively affect the DR of each website they link to (only dofollow).


Or, to put it simply, why do you need to check your rating of the domain?

Here are a few things you can do with Web Rating:

  1. To benchmark against all other indexable websites on the web: Much like Alexa Rank, DR gives you an idea of how your website stacks up when measuring or comparing against every other website in the world.
  2. To measure up against your competitors: Comparing your Domain Grade to other websites in your niche can give you a lot of additional insight about the “link popularity” of your own website. This helps you discover competitors who’re doing better than you… so you can piggyback from their backlink profile. You also get to see those you're doing better than… so you can monitor if they are catching up with you.
  3. To perform link prospecting: Let's say you want to get a backlink from a site. By checking the domain value of the site, you immediately get an insight on the “value” that you’re going to get in exchange for your efforts. This is easy because url value is meant to show the relative “link popularity” of a given website, which directly shows the value you're going to get from their link back.
  4. To discover how well your site can perform in SERPs: First off, even though search traffic is not taken into account when calculating url reputation, the two correlate very well. Your domain score can help you see how well your site will perform in the search engine results pages (SERPs) or how much traffic it should be getting. But, at the same time, it is perfectly possible for DR25 website to have more search traffic than DR35 website. That happens because domain value is not the only contributing factor to your search traffic. There are factors like the total search traffic potential of the niche your website belongs to and the level of competition in your niche, etc., which contribute in determining how much traffic a website gets.

Now that you know what domain reputation is used for, it's time to actually start checking it. And the way to do that is to use a tool for checking domain ratings. Meet Bulk Domain Rank Checker, SmallSEOTools’ web application for looking up your site's Url Grade fast.


The Bulk Domain Analysis is a tool we've built here at

This DR checker returns the same Web Rating and domain rank. However, you don't have to pay here as you can use this DR/AR checker for completely free.

Whether you want to check the strength of the backlink profile of your website, or see how your domain authority compares to the competition, this tool is able to help you.

It's a bulk DR checker, which means you can check the URL reputation of multiple sites (up to 10) at once based on whether or not the domains are in the database.

Additionally, along with the Url score, our Bulk Domain Reputation Checker will show you the domain rank for any given website you enter.

For the record, Domain Rating is a global website ranking system developed by SEOs and it contains all websites from high to low based on the quality and size of their backlinks.

Are UR and DR connected? Yes, and in a way, they’re almost the same. DR orders all websites in the database by their “raw” values, which sort of means Domain rank is a much more granular domain rating score.
