Hello friends, a new question from my side, that what is difference between popularity and authority of a web page or a website, are these 2 things differ, or are they related to each other? How Google decides the popularity and quality and how Google deals and give importance to popularity and authority?

Popularity is measured by Page Rank of your website or webpage. And the authority is measured by Domain Authority of Website and Page Authority of web page. Popularity is the website exposure in the online media and how much visitors like your website. Authority is the measure of trust that your website has through backlinks. Both are measured with equal criteria, but they are denoted separately depending on the popularity and trust of the website.

Authority sites are generally high quality sites and have well written articles, Popularity will automatically comes when the sites has more authority.

Authority articles/authors would be from people who actually work in an industry at the level of making policy or can influence it (e.g., Microsoft product, and even if Bill Gates isn't the CEO anymore, he writes about the product).

Popular articles/authors would be by anyone, anywhere, who reaches page rank or whatever definition of what's popular (e.g., an article on Windows 8 from an author at PC Magazine).

Popular authors will still be dependent on the authority authors for it's news/opinions itself. They can market authority views (or destroy it), but they are like reporters, not policy makers.

Popularity means how much that website will be know to user and authority means a website contains good quality back links and page rank that helps other website to get quality back links from there.
