Addon Domain & SEO

As it applies to the main (parent) domain, are there any SEO pros or cons with addon domains?

I imagine the inbound links to the parent still count for you, while
repeated content counts against.

Can Google spy an add on domain? Or do you mean a subdomain? I wouldn’t
think the nameservers give that much detail, but what do I know.

It’s my understanding that search engines see (so to speak) the addon domain as a completely separate entity from the main domain which, as far as I can tell, it is. It has its own totally different url and the only thing it shares really is the same IP which I believe is of no interest to search engine ranking.

And no, I don’t mean a subdomain.

I’m simply wondering if there’s some benefit to be leveraged for the parent domain by having a well-trafficked and popular addon domain. I’m thinking not but I thought I would ask.

From what I think that I know, link popularity is what leverages search
results - so links from your add-on domain to your main site contribute to
that effort.

How. Ever.

This is the same strategy that was employed in link farming - so you DON’T
want to even make the Google think you’re doing that. You do this by
creating valuable, original content that compliments your main site. Google
also compares content between the two, frowning if it finds you’ve just
copied even bits and pieces of the main.

Exactly. But I don’t think that will be an issue (could be wrong about this) as both sites are completely and utterly different in terms of content and the only link is a simple credit. Beyond that there’s nothing else connecting the two. The other option is using a reseller account to make the distinction even clearer and potentially safer.

One credit link won’t boost your SEO. Links that don’t focus on your main
site will dilute the link popularity bonus. I think.

What I meant was that one link won’t get interpreted as farming, that’s all. But you’re right, one link ain’t gonna help either.

Possibly gaining a thimble of SEO juice really isn’t my goal anyway. I just wanted to know if there were any inherent pros or cons with addon domains, that’s it. There doesn’t appear any either way. As long as it doesn’t hurt anything then the rest is kinda … meh as far as I’m concerned.

Thanks,

Todd
