    Hey guys, I have a website, let's just called it watch-me.com

    My website is focused around video streaming for episodes of a certain show/series.

    I don't upload any content myself, I just embed links I find from other websites that other people upload, legally or illegally its not for me to say, they agree to it being legally owned by them when they upload it and declare that they allow it to be embedded/streamed, so that's on them.

    however, because I rank pretty high on google I will get hit with DMCA complaints pretty regularly, but I have a big audience and a lot of people help me bring in income, so when I get hit with DMCA complaint and removed from google, I copy all of my content to a subdomain and change my social links, and re-post my website on twitter,reddit,facebook, etc. It's an annoying process, but it works for the most part.

    So, this is the 6th time it has happened, each time I use a new subdomain like www1.watch-me.com or www2.watch-me.com, www3,www4,etc. You get the point.

    Now, it seems at least once a month this is happening, so to build backlinks to a domain that has very temporary use such as a www5.watch-me.com only to have it removed on google within a few weeks seems like a waste of time/money/resources.

    I do 301 redirect all of the other www's up to the current, so the current one is www7 so www1,www2,www3,www4,etc subdomains will all point to www7 (Which is how I imagine I keep my rank?) but this makes me wonder, what do I build backlinks to? Should I build it to the original watch-me.com website? That website (was originally) hit with a DMCA complaint as well but it is however the root domain.

    Kind of confused, weird situation and I can't seem to find much on google about it, any help would be appreciated.

    Build them to your current subdomain. I'm noticing that redirected domain links show up as if they are directly pointing to the directed to url, but google obviously removes some of the link power from a redirect.

    So you can link to the current subdomain and receive the full power of the links, or you can link to an old subdomain, have the links forwarded to the current subdomain, and loose some of their power.

    What I'm saying is, if you create links to your main domain, which is redirected to your subdomain, then the links will be redirected to your subdomain as well, but you will only get a percentage of their power, as the redirect causes some of the power to be lost.

    If you link directly to the currently used subdomain, then none of the power will be lost.

    Yeah obviously.
    Once you change to a new subdomain, forward the old one to the new one to get a percentage of the link power from the old one, and link directly to the new one to get all of the link power from those links.
