    Question International linkbuilding subdomain/subfolder


    Hi all,

    Do we need to target external links with linkbuilding to the .com or .com/nl (for example NL).
    Or both?

    We would like to increase our rankings with landingpages at .com/nl.
    But I can understand that it is also important to increase the domain authority at .com.

    Hope to hear from you soon guys!
    Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean by "targeting external links"?

    Thanks for your reply!

    I just mean linking external links to our website, the whole linkbuilding.
    Do I need to point links to domain.com, or domain.com/nl, if we would like to raise the rankings with the .com/nl pages?

    I think it is always best in Linkbuilding to have as many variations of your links as possible, so I would go for both .com and .nl. Be sure to target inner pages of your website and not just the homepage as well, to avoid causing crawler suspicion.
