As a grad student at UPenn, I have access to the subdomain
seas.upenn.edu/~lindsb/, in which I built a simple personal website. This domain showed up in the top 5 results on Google when I typed in "Ben Lindsay", I assume because it belongs to
upenn.edu, a relatively well-respected website. I assume this because I did nothing intentional to try to improve SEO and probably did not do anything magical by accident. About a year ago, I moved my site to
benjlindsay.com, which looks much nicer than the previous domain name, but it doesn't show up anywhere on a Google search for my name. I just put in a
meta tag in my UPenn domain that redirects to my newer domain name today.
My question is, is there some way to make use of the UPenn subdomain to get
benjlindsay.com to show up in the top 5?
