In episode 191 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it’s possible to spread authority to multiple root domains from one authority domain via subdomain redirects.
The exact question was:
From the Facebook group: Looking for insights on an idea – I wanted to test this but asking is … more efficient 😀 Is the following possible?:
– I have site.com, and site.com has authority (high DA/DR)
– I have subdomain on site.com: subdomain1.site.com. Subdomain carries authority from site.com
– Can I create a redirect from subdomain1.site.com to secondsite.com, while site.com stays live, and then secondsite.com gets authority from subdomain1.site.com. So both secondsite.com and site.com have authority?
In other words is it possible to spread authority to multiple root domains from one authority domain via subdomain redirects..? I'm doubting this works but also read some things that indicates it might work.
