This is my main site:   CaboPages.com

This is my tribe site:   Community.CaboPages.com

As I understand it, they are technically, two separate websites.

Ideally, I want Google to look at them as 1 website, so that all of the traffic and links that go to the Tribe online community will help my main site rank higher in Google.

Question 1:  given the way I have set up Tribe (Community.CaboPages.com), will that help my main site rank well?  Or do I need to change it to:  CaboPages.com/Community

If that is even possible.
 

Question 2:  Do I use the same Google Analytics Tracking ID for CaboPages.com and insert that into the admin field for the Community.CaboPages.com site?

That is what I have just done.

 

Thank you for any clarification.
