    DR is directly related to your backlink profile. Check your lost backlinks report (and don't forget there is a "dropped" tab in that report too)

    solution?

    Get more high-quality backlinks to your website

    What does it matter? Did your SERP rank change? Did your earning change? If not, then why bother with metrics. The only metric that should interest you is the size of your bank account.

    Your DR has decreased due to the decrease in the number of backlinks. This is very common and the only solution to this is building more backlinks and high-quality backlinks.

    Metrics are good for selling guest posts.

    Metrics are bad for ranking.

    I have had tf 50, dr 40 links do zilch for ranking. Ive had tf 5 and dr 10 link improve ranking.

    Niche relevance and anchor text are a factor as well.

    I normally don't post after people like @Nargil as he answers the question more audaciously than I can, but I want to emphasize metrics mean nothing. It is a filter. A filter to make seos jobs easier.

    My most profitable personal site is a dr 15 site. Big links from media sites. Ranking for $$$$ dollar amazon items and also selling personally launched products (huge mark up) and a couple click bank. This is a white hat site, well I call it white hat. Links are mostly organic aside from web 2.0s to control anchor texts.

    My point is, metrics dont matter. I only care about metrics when selling to seos or amateur seos.

    You would be shocked the number of amazing links low dr / tf sites have.

    Majestic, ahrefs, and moz are very limited. I have to check majestic, serp stat, semrush, ahrefs, and moz to get a list of half the links a site has.

    If google crawled 25% of your links (the most I had with ahrefs per my recollection) you get a low ranking.

    If you want rank, ignore metrics. If you want to sell guest posts, pay attention to metrics.

    My advice? The money is in ranking a high comp term, so ignore ranking. Sites you messed up will not rank but will get high rankings. Use those for guest posts like @back2form sells a list for. The cheapest link I remember is 25 usd. I get a couple paid guest post offers per month without trying.

    Tl:dr: IGNORE METRICS UNLESS YOU ARE SELLING GUEST POSTS.

    One more thing (I feel like jackie chans uncle on his cartoon), even webmaster tools does show all links.

    My theory is, and I spoke with @Nargil about this, that webmaster tools doesnt show all links. Google has a delay.

    Googles processors are far superior to a third party like ahrefs.

    So even if you dont see the links, it doesnt mean they are not counted.

    My rule is, if after 3 months the link isnt in webmaster tools, I try to reindex it with a submission service or spam tier two / three.

    If it doesnt, I ignore it. Wasted effort.
