    Subdomains Link Juice To Main Domain Possible?


    Sorry for making this thread but I've searched all over and couldn't find an answer.

    Here's the problem I'm facing right now:
    -multiple subdomains with identical content to my main domain (due to company policy and branding differences between each subdomain)
    -links are spread out across the different subdomains

    Is there a way I can consolidate all the link juice into just 1 URL? Without redirecting any of the websites?

    So users can visit subdomain1.xxx.com or subdomain99.xxx.com normally, but all link juice is powering only the main domain.

    Use the rel=canonical tag. That said, doing this will more or less guarantee that the subdomains will not be indexed (if they are)
