I have a subdomain under my top domain as follows:


In Google Webmaster Tools, for the subdomain quran.2index.net, I find that the number of links recorded from the top domain to the subdomain is very large - more than 26k links! While what I really have is just one link to the subdomain from the index page of the top domain.

The following screenshot displays this:

I'd like to know two things:

  1. Why is there so many links from the top domain to the subdomain?
  2. Does this negatively affect SEO and my subdomain's indexing in Google?

Your "Random Text" tool on your top domain potentially generates an infinite number of pages (unique URLs). Each of these pages links to the jQuery script on the sub domain:

<script src="http://quran.2index.net/themed/slate/js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js"></script>

I think this might be the source of the large number of spuriously reported "links".

    But the image shows that the source of the link is 2index.net and it linked to quran.2index.net i.e it is linked to homepage!

  • The "Top 1 link" would seem to have its source at 2index.net, but yes, you are right, the links would seem to point to the root of the sub domain - so the script tag might be off track.
