Google also indexes these types of sites and mostly all of their files uploaded to them. Make sure your links are on that .html files.

Like for me as an example, I have like 130+ subdomains, and only like 60+ of them are listed and indexed on Google, and it helps my main domain gets it’s high ranking on Google. Make sure to submit a sitemap.xml with every subdomain and optimize them individually on Google Webmaster Console. Take a look at what Google is doing, it has a subdomain for every service it offers and it’s all for free.

Give away a free web hosting account so that every free member will carry your subdomain with your ads on it and promote them as well, giving you a lot of backlinks just for giving away a free hosting account. You can also make money with it by charging those who wanted to remove ads on their pages.
For all the things you will do on top of yourself, make sure to not buy links on other sites. This will trigger Google’s spam detection software, Google will unlist you all at once or much worst ban your domain from their index. But you can sure hire someone to do it for you but of course, it’s not cheap for all the manual work your website will garner and a team of SEO professionals must do it for you.
