    I find this issue interesting. I've seen it written that some people believe that the subdomain is treated as a separate domain. I'm not convinced. If someone is wrestling with putting their storefront on a subdomain versus in a folder, the prospect of having to deal with essentially a new domain (if in subdomain) would meant that the decision would be easy, they'd put it in a folder.

    So, in answer to your question, "why google webmaster tools is not showing backlinks from parent domain to my subdomain?", I think it may be that it is simply not seen by Google as a separate domain. It's not showing internal links. Unless your site is not fully indexed yet. Or it is not showing you every backlink for some reason. But you are getting "backlinks" from the parent domain, as seen in Google?

    I'd like to hear other peoples' logic on this.

    @tritrain thank you for your answer!
    "I think it may be that it is simply not seen by Google as a separate domain"
    i don't think so because everything is going perfect with other subdomain (parent is same for both subdomains)
    website is also fully indexed in google.
    webmaster showing all other backlinks from my offpage work. but not from parent domain :-(
    im totally worried about it

    And both subdomains are indexed, right? If so, then I don't know. Maybe someone else can chime in.
