I am wondering if I build backlinks to a subdomain eg. subdomain.mydomain.com and I redirect that subdomain to my main domain eg. mydomain.com will the Pagerank and link juice of the backlinks built to the subdomain count towards the main domain?
Obviously it would be easier to just build the backlinks to the main domain but without a long explanation I am not able to do that in this case.
Would redirecting the subdomain work in this case?
