Hello Guys! One of my client sites is built with the pirated theme by a previous agency. Now I am creating a new site in a subdomain, then direct to the main domain.

My question as follows.

1)Will it affect the current SEO?
2) I want to remove all previous data because the pirated theme has a high chance of malware.
3) I am optimizing content & page with rank math. Is it best practice to on subdomain or better to on live site?

Kindly help! I appreciate any help you can provide.

  1. Hello, Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    Using nulled/pirated themes and plugins is never a good thing and can lead to a lot of problems on websites, not only related to SEO.

    1. Since nulled themes can’t be verified correctly most of them have spam links and malicious code that can be used by poorly intentioned people to attack the website and redirect to a different place.

    2. You should do that as soon as possible to prevent any potential SEO problems in the future.

    3. It’s possible to do all your optimization on a subdomain and then import the settings to the live site using our import/export options: https://rankmath.com/kb/import-export-settings/

    Please note that the individual posts/pages metadata, such as title, description, and focus keyword can only be exported and imported if you are using the PRO version of Rank Math.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
