    Hello,

    I have a YouTube channel - link x.

    I registered a new domain today, link y.

    Link y redirects to link x. (in the domain settings)

    If I get backlinks to link y, will it affect link x's ranking in any way?

    Thanks in advance.

    If it's a 301 redirect, then 85% of the link juice will flow to domain x through domain y. However, as domain y is a YouTube channel, I have no idea how well the YouTube channel will rank in Google (or if backlinks affect them in YouTube's SERPs)
