Here are a few reasons why your DR may have dropped. 

1: Other sites have gained a lot of backlinks

If you didn't lose any backlinks, and yet your DR still dropped, this could be a reason. 

Think of it this way: when a DR‐100 website gets more backlinks, we can’t make it DR‐101. So instead we push all the other websites down by 1. 

That’s a very raw explanation of why you might see a drop in your DR while no backlinks were lost.” 

2: You are losing high-quality links

Domain Rating shows the strength of a given website’s overall backlink profile. It's measured on a logarithmic scale from 1 to 100, with the latter being the strongest.

That means that your DR will drop if you're beginning to lose high-quality links. 

Do check your "Lost" backlinks report to investigate what is happening and see if you can arrest the decline.
