Question about Piggybacking on authority domain

I've had good SERP results with a Weebly site. Another Weebly site has not done as well. The latter, I put a domain on it. I have it set up within Weebly such that mysite.com is the site name instead of mysite.weebly.com. Do you think that matters? Would it do better if, like the first one, it was mysite.weebly.com? In other words, by using my own domain name, do I get any bump up for the authority of Weebly?

    Although it's highly likely your "mysite.weebly.com ranks better and gets a "bump" because it's a subdomain of a high PR platform, basing your definitive findings that it's better to not use your own domain by testing out just 2 websites is inconclusive, at best.

    Search engine algorithms are ever-changing so it would probably take building a few more websites with a weebly.com and your own domain to reach a better conclusion.

      Anyone else got any thoughts -- whether to apply my own domain to a Weebly or Webs.com site or just use, for instance, mysite.webs.com?

      Either way, good copy would be on it, very relevant to the narrow niche, with SEO in mind.
