    Do backlinks to a subdomain count as backlinks to the main domain?


    if you have {blog . something . com} and you get a backlink to it does it count for the blog or for the {something . com}?

    From what I have seen with my sites, the answer is yes. Althogh the link weight might not be as high.

    Again, just my personal experience

    OK....then here is the follow-up. I have a FREE service/product that if advertised would receive alot of traffic. I am not advertising it right now because I don't have the resources to successfully get the work done. My thought is that if I do decide to basically work for free and do a DIGG or some other PR I would like the link to go to an interior page rather than my homepage. BUT, i want to get credit for the backlinks. I thought maybe about putting a banner on the homepage to direct the traffic to the interior page so I get the main domain page back link but I am worried if I cancel the offer after a few weeks and for months I get the traffic to the homepage looking for the offer.

    All that being said...lol...lets say I got 100 backlinks to an interior page. How does that compare to backlinks to the root domain...ie: 100 interior backlinks = 10 root backlinks?
