I bought a domain, after building my app I'm using Ahref's to audit my website. I notice that many backlinks are appearing with a good domain authority pointing not to my root domain but to a subdomain.

I'm thinking of creating the subdomain and redirecting it with status code 301 to my root domain. Is this the best approach or should I make this subdomain as the same of the domain root? Basically having 2 websites?

  • I think this is to opinion based to be meaningfully answered. Also, depending on the back links and their relevance doing this can help, but it can also hurt your SEO.

  • What are these links for? When were they created? Do the links point to the subdomain's home page or to a deeper URL on the subodmain? Do you have content that is appropriate to satisfy these links? Mar 15 at 13:13
