In short..... yes, if you backlink them together but it must have some form of association such as:

  1. A brand i.e banking.tesco.co.uk, insurance.tesco.co.uk the brand being tesco in this example.
  2. Similar content i.e parts.cars.co.uk, forum.cars.co.uk being similar content.
  3. Similar niche i.e wordpress.stackexchange.com, webmasters.stackexchange.com etc.
  • Alright. Thanks. :) But I assume content on subdomain gives less value than content on the domain itself? – Kristina J. Apr 18 '17 at 12:06
